Fruit and veg: for a longer life eat 10-a-day 水果蔬菜:每天吃800克可延长寿命

文字稿

伦敦帝国理工学院公布的一项新研究成果表明,每日吃 800 克的蔬菜水果与健康长寿之间存在一定的关系。该研究团队还发现,特定的水果和蔬菜种类能够减少癌症和心脏病病发的风险。分析表明,即使吃少量水果蔬菜也会对健康有益,不过多多益善。请听  James Gallagher 的报道。

Only around one in three people in the UK sticks to the five-a-day government target. Now a team at Imperial College London has drawn conclusions from 95 studies involving two million people.

The scientists say that although the five-a-day message doesn’t need to change, eating ten portions could prevent close to eight million premature deaths each year around the world. They also believe that products like spinach, yellow peppers and cauliflower lower the risks of cancer, while apples, citrus fruits and broccoli, for example, cut the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Public Health England says the five-a-day target is an achievable way to prevent a number of diseases, and that adding pressure to consume more creates an unrealistic expectation.
