The Mayo Clinic surveyed 732 Minnesota residents and determined that only 16% of adults get five servings of fruits or vegetables each day. This is too bad, because not only did recent studies find that "a diet high in fruits, vegetables, legumes and certain oils -- also known as the 'Mediterranean diet'" -- reduces arthritis, and that eating fruit protects against cancer, but also that vegetable fats ward off Alzheimers, while animal fats contribute to the brain-wasting disease. So try to get your five-a-day now, while you can still keep track of 'em.
