MAJOR STUDY SUPPORTS HEALTHY HEART DIET

A multiyear study involving more than 100,000 participants provides added support that eating lots of fruit and vegetables is good for the heart.

But the analysis failed to show similar benefits for cancer, a result that prompted the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, which published the study Tuesday, to raise questions about its findings.

The report supports the American Heart Association's recommendations to consume at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day, according to the researchers, led by Dr. Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Public Health.
