As we get older, it's hard not to think about death.
"Am I exercising enough? Should I be taking vitamins? Am I eating properly?"
Most of our habits are formed as children, but did you know that a lot of common food habits are linked to early death?
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, an estimated 45.4% of all deaths in America are caused by heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. 9.5% of these deaths are caused by diet-related issues.
Take a look at some of these common food habits and see if you are guilty of any of these.
Not Enough Fruit
7.5% of diet-related deaths have to do with people not eating enough fruit in one day. One serving of fruit is one whole fruit, or one cup equivalent.
Not Enough Vegetables
Same idea with veggies. 7.6% of diet related deaths are due to a lack of vegetables in their diet. This is more common in men than in women.
