  • servings of fruits and vegetables


    New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that many Americans are still coming up short when it comes to getting their recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 32.5 percent of adults get two or more servings of fruit per day, while 26.3 percent report that they consume vegetables at least three times per day.

    The federal government generally advises people to get at least five servings per day of fruits and vegetables. By doing so, people can help ward off potentially dangerous problems like high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes.

    In turn, a healthy diet can benefit one’s financial situation as well as their overall physical well-being. This is because people who are diagnosed with chronic medical conditions will often find themselves paying much more for their life insurance premiums.

    A diet rich in vegetables can also help lower one’s risk of a cancer diagnosis. Even survivors of cancer will be generally charged more for life insurance based on their possibility of a recurrence.
