eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.

Life interrupts our best intentions!
Satterwhite Chiropractic is just sharing this gentle research-based
reminder of the help eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Oxford chiropractic
folks and their friends and family members!
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may allow you to live
longer! Satterwhite Chiropractic sees many Oxford chiropractic
patients who’ll love to hear this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an
effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
consuming more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who had 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on an important role in lowering inflammation and
lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive outcomes of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of
osteoporosis, too. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees many Oxford chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables
eaten, the higher the BMD and lesser the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not be
lovers of vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit
tends to be more advantageous
in this concern than vegetables. At least up
your fruit intake! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are undecided about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food as
one article states that sensory play is the
forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Satterwhite Chiropractic would love to
hear your stories if you try this!
