Eat to Prevent Atherosclerosis

The American College of Cardiology reports that high consumption of fruits and vegetables as young adults predicts healthier arteries 20 years later. Females who ate 8-9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables for a 2000 calorie diet were 40% less likely to have calcified plaque in their arteries compared to those who only ate 3-4 servings per day.

PositiveTip: Start healthy habits now and have up to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day for optimal future blood vessel health.
