Britons should eat seven portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day, according to new research into healthy eating, published Tuesday.Researchers at University College London found that eating seven portions or more could reduce the risk of dying from cancer by 25 percent and of heart disease by 31 percent compared to people who consume less than one portion of fruit or vegetables a day.However, the researchers found that eating frozen and canned fruit increased the risk of death by 17 percent compared to those who ate less than a portion a day.U.S. researchers reported Friday that young women who ate eight to nine daily servings of fruit and vegetables in their 20s were 40 percent less likely to have hardening of the arteries 20 years later compared to those who ate just three or four portions a day.
