    As discussed by guest Dr. Nicholas Perricone on the Oprah Winfrey Show.  Green foods are considered one of his 10 recommended Superfoods.

    Green foods like wheat and barley grasses can be bought in powder form, and offer greater levels of nutrients than green leafy vegetables. They also help cholesterol, blood pressure and immune response.

    Cancer Trends Progress Report – 2007 Update


    Limited Fruit and Vegetable Consumption is a Cancer Risk

    People whose diets are rich in plant foods such as fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of getting cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, stomach, lung, and there is some suggested evidence for colon, pancreas, and prostate. They are also less likely to get diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. A diet high in fruits and vegetables helps to reduce calorie intake and may help to control weight.

    To help prevent these cancers and other chronic diseases, experts recommend 4 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, depending on energy needs. This includes 2 to 5 servings of fruits and 2 to 8 servings of vegetables, with special emphasis on dark-green and orange vegetables and legumes. There is no evidence that the popular white potato protects against cancer.

    Most Recent Estimates

    In 2003-2004, people aged 2 and older had, on average, 1.0 cup of fruit and 1.6 cups of vegetables, for a total of 2.6 cups of fruits and vegetables. Total vegetable servings included:

    • Dark-green/orange: 0.14 cups
    • Starchy: 0.45 cups (largely comprising fried potatoes)
    • Tomatoes and other vegetables: 0.88 cups

    Among racial and ethnic groups, Non-Hispanic Blacks had 2.3 total cups of fruits and vegetables per day, while Non-Hispanic Whites had 2.6 and Mexican-Americans had 2.9.

    Healthy People 2010 Targets

    At least two daily servings of fruits.

    At least three daily servings of vegetables, with at least one-third being dark-green/orange.

    (The Healthy People 2010 targets call for 75 percent of the population to consume the minimum servings of fruits and 50 percent to consume the minimum servings of vegetables. However, the minimum number of servings in these targets predates the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommend higher intakes.)

    Key Issues

    New dietary guidance released in 2005 recommended increased intake of fruits and vegetables based on evolving evidence of the benefit of eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. The average combined recommendation for fruits and vegetables of 10 servings (5 cups) is twice the level targeted by Healthy People 2010 and about twice the current average intake. Additional servings of fruits and vegetables should replace sources of "empty calories" in the diet, such as added sugars (honey, syrup, soft drinks) and solid fats (butter, sour cream), to avoid taking in too many calories. Individuals should be especially encouraged to consume dark green/orange varieties of vegetab
