All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

If Americans ate just one more serving of fruits or vegetables per day, this would save more than 30,000 lives and $5 billion in medical costs each year.

If Americans were to follow current USDA recommendations for daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, those numbers would go up to more than 127,000 lives and $17 billion saved.

The increased longevity that would result if Americans ate the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables is worth over $11 trillion.
