Eating loads of fruit and vegetables - 10 portions aday - may give us longer lives, say researchers.
The study, by Imperial College London, calculatedsuch eating habits could prevent 7.8 millionpremature deaths each year.
The team also identified specific fruit and veg thatreduced the risk of cancer and heart disease.
The analysis showed even small amounts had a health boon, but more is even better.
A portion counts as 80g (3oz) of fruit or veg - the equivalent of a small banana, a pear orthree heaped tablespoons of spinach or peas.
The conclusions were made by pooling data on 95 separate studies, involving two millionpeople's eating habits.
Harriet Micallef, from Chippenham, says she often manages eight to 10 portions a day and hasmultiple portions of spinach every day.
She told the BBC: "I have a lot, I don't ever have a meal without veg or salad so eight to 10portions is a regular thing."
