BBC News article by Clare Murphy “Five-a-day has little impact on cancer” states that “eating more fruit and vegetables has only a modest effect on protecting against cancer”.
This new discovery may sound a bit depressing, but it is not a good reason to stop eating tasty vegetables and fruit!
For example, fresh and preserved tomatoes contain powerful antioxidants that have age-fighting properties and protect our cells from damage. (Harvard University – antioxidant: lycopene).
In addition, good food can change our day and help us to feel better: that is already a step towards a healthier life!
A foodie perspective? When in doubt, just follow your nose!
Food is great, life is beautiful!
