- Fruit and vegetable consumption and mortality: European prospective investigation into cancer and nutritionMax Leenders
Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University Medical Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Am J Epidemiol 178:590-602. 2013..Inverse associations were stronger for raw than for cooked vegetable consumption. These results support the evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption is associated with a lower risk of death. ..
