But they stress that a well-balanced diet can help reduce the risk of many illnesses, including some cancers. Health experts, including the National Health Service (NHS), recommend eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables every day. Vegetables are high in fiber and minerals―especially if eaten raw―which can help people’s stomachs stay healthy, prevent digestion issues, and lower their risk of colon cancer. According to a study published in Frontiers in Nutrition, those who eat a lot of raw vegetables may have a lower risk of heart disease, as cooking destroys essential nutrients like vitamin C. Additionally, fruits and vegetables are often low in fat and calories.
