Why Aren't People Eating Healthier?
Do you think it's hard to eat fruit twice a day and vegetables three times a day? To find out if Americans were eating any healthier, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention surveyed hundreds of thousands of people. They found that when it comes to fruits and vegetables, people are actually eating less than they did 10 years ago. Only 32% of adults were eating enough fruit and only 25% of them were eating enough vegetables.
Even though there is plenty of information publicized about the health benefits of fruits and vegetables, people aren't eating them.
Why don't you eat more fruits and vegetables? Is it taste? Convenience? Cost? Availability? You should be including some type of fruit and vegetable with every meal.
