WHO and FAO announce global initiative to promote consumption of fruit and vegetables
Low fruit and vegetable intake -a key risk factor for conditions such as heart disease, cancer and obesity- is estimated to cause some 2.7 million deaths each year, and is among the top 10 risk factors contributing to mortality. Low fruit and vegetable intake is estimated to cause about 31% of ischaemic heart disease and 11% of stroke worldwide. The preventable percentage of cancer due to low fruit and vegetable intake ranges from 5-12% for all cancers, and up to 20-30% for upper gastrointestinal tract cancers. For recent and detailed information, see Promoting fruit and vegetable consumption around the world. See also Fruit, vegetables and NCD prevention.
