Fruits and vegetables: Protective or just fellow travelers?

Marion Nestle

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Virtually all national and international dietary recommendations include advice to eat more fruits and vegetables. A recent study finds that people who do so are more likely to practice other healthful behaviors that can confound studies of lifestyle factors and chronic disease risk. This finding emphasizes the importance of following dietary recommendations as a whole and of developing more research on the health impact of overall dietary patterns.
