NEW VEGETARIAN CAFé IN BEMBRIDGE

TEN A DAY

Five-a-day is a well-known nationwide campaign in the UK and in many other countries.
However, a new study has shown that 400g of fruit and vegetables a day might not be enough
to offer the maximum protection against heart disease, cancer and early death.

Scientists discovered that eating 800g of fruit and vegetables daily -
double the government’s recommendations - may have large health benefits.

The study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, adds to the ever-growing evidence
that eating a diet consisting of plant foods is beneficial to public health.

Tom Kuehnel, Campaigns Officer at The Vegan Society, said:
“There is a disconnect between what we are told the public should be eating and the food we are producing. 
The government should encourage more farmers to take up fruit, vegetable and protein crop growing in the UK,
and provide support for growers that are providing food for human consumption,
as opposed to prioritising animal farming as we currently do.
We know that there is already more than enough arable land set aside
that could be used to feed the population in healthful ways.”

With the world’s population constantly increasing, food and land security are becoming major issues.
