Nearly half of people in these eight US states don't consume a single piece of fruit in a day

America's biggest fruitphobe states have been revealed in a interactive map. Based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, the map shows how nearly half of adults in eight states do not consume a single piece of fruit per day.

The states are concentrated in the South, which has traditionally scored poorly for fast food consumption, obesity and other diet metrics.

Overall, across the country, three in five Americans consume more than one piece of fruit a day. The CDC says every adult should consume 1.5 to two cups of fruits and two to three cups of vegetables per day to get enough nutrients and avoid any deficiencies.
