The European Center for Nutrigenomics (NuGo) which states: “The resulting breakdown in cellular structure and function leads to those diseases we associate with old age: cancer, cardiovascular disease (CVD), type II diabetes, cataract and macula degeneration, arthritis etc. Poor diet can accelerate this process whilst 80% of case-controlled studies support the hypothesis that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of age-related illness. There are other things we can do to reduce our risk. We can maintain an appropriate weight for our height, moderate our consumption of alcohol, choose whether or not to smoke, and take regular exercise.” We see it over and over again, vegetables and fruits equate to health and happiness. If you are not big on vegetables and fruits, reconsider your plight. Learn to make vegetables that are appealing to you. Learn to be satisfied by the natural sugars in fruits. The life you save may be your own or your children or your grandchildren.
