Greens Impact Immune System

UK scientists have discovered a new link between diets with green veggies and a healthy immune system.


A recent study published in the journal Cell has found a natural way to fight disease: Eat your greens. According to UK scientists, green vegetables are vital to a responsive immune system and healthy intestinal tract. The researchers found that mice who consumed a purified diet of essential nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, but little to no vegetables, lost 70 percent of a specialized white blood cell in their intestinal tracts in a two to three week span, increasing their risk of infection and inflammation. The United States Department of Agriculture recommends that adults consume between two and three cups of vegetables daily.
