Room For Improvement

Plant based whole food contains everything human metabolism needs for normal function. Increasing the consumption of vegetables and fruit and decreasing intake of processed food plus animal protein and fat is the double whammy of health. But it is slow to happen. In a survey of high school students by the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC), only 16.8% ate fruit and 11.2% ate vegetables at least four times daily. And most were not engaging in 30 minutes of physical activity daily. This is in comparison to the recommended 1.5 to 2 cups of fruit and 2.5 to 3 cups of vegetables daily. One cup is equal to a medium apple or 12 baby carrots.
