WHO wants to increase consumption of fruit & veg in low-income countries
Non-communicable diseases such as vessel blockages, heart conditions, respiratory problems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, asthma, or rheumatic conditions are spreading at a much higher rate in lower and middle-income countries compared to high income countries. According to the World Health Organization, about 80% of non communicable disease deaths occur in low and middle-income countries. The WHO projects that these countries may increase in the number of deaths by 17% worldwide.
These diseases are precipitated by unhealthy lifestyle habits such as a poor diet and inadequate levels of physical activity. The researchers identify that low fruits and vegetables intake is prevalent in many cultures throughout the world; a change in this eating habit may help with decreasing the rate of disease, and furthermore might even help in reducing the burden of these diseases.
The WHO Food and Agriculture Organization committee concluded that the minimum intake of fruits and vegetables should be 400g per day.
