Fruits and vegetables are natural fast foods. Research has shown that eating “5-A-Day” reduces the risk of cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses. Cancer, heart disease, and stroke are the three leading causes of death in this country. All 3 diseases are related to diets high in fat and not enough fruits and vegetables.
