Dr Greger has a very interesting video (below) that asks the question, “How many minutes (longer do we live) per mouthful of plants”. By plants we include both fruits and vegetables. No one argues the fact that plants are good for us but how good are they? A recent study compared those people eating 5 servings of plant based foods per day to those eating 4, 3, 2, 1 and no plant based food per day showed:

Servings pf Plants Months lived or lost
0 -48 months (we lose 2 years off our live if we don’t eat any plant foods)
1 -18
2 -7
3 -3
4 -1 month
