IMPACT OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES ON DEMENTIA.
Fruit and vegetables have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and to boost the health of our blood vessels and immune system. This may be due to the complex network of nutrients they hold. For instance, they contain many antioxidants, which may reduce DNA damage, and lead to a reduction in cancer risk.
Studies suggest that although 5 portions of fruit and vegetables is good, 10 a day is even better.
