Five-a-day has little impact on cancer, study finds

 

For many years British people have been recommended to eat at least 'five-a-day' – that is five items of fruit or vegetables every day in order to improve their health and reduce the likelihood of illness, in particular cancer.

好幾年來英國人被建議每天至少要吃五種蔬果,為的是能增進健康和減低疾病發生的可能性,尤其是癌症。

 

The recommendation was first put forward in 1990 by the World Health Organization which said that the 'five-a-day' diet could prevent cancer and other chronic diseases.

這項建議最先被世界衛生組織(WHO)於1990年時提出,該組織表示「每日五份」的飲食方式可以預防癌症和其他慢性疾病。

 

Since then the advice has been a mainstay of public health policies in many developed countries, such as the UK, where the population eat a high proportion of junk food.

自那時起這份建議在許多發展國家中成為一個公共健康政策的支柱,像是英國,此國的人們飲食中含有大量比例的垃圾食物。

 

Many health campaigns have promoted the advice, and indeed much food packaging in Britain states how the contents will constitute part of your five-a-day.

許多健康組織也致力推廣這個理念,確實也有許多英國的食物包裝都註明其內容物可以構成你「每日五份」的其中一部分。
