Seven-a-day fruit and veg 'reduces risk of mortality'

Eating seven or more portions of fruit and vegetables per day reduces the risk of mortality, UCL scientist Dr Oyinlola Oyebode has said.

Dr Oyebode, who conducted a study of 65,226 men and women, told the Today programme that vegetables are of slightly greater benefit than fruit, which has higher sugar content.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 2 April 2014.
