While this article focuses on the fact that the link between the intake of fresh produce and the decrease in risk of cancer is less than previously thought, the fact remains that there is still a direct link.  And of course, there are many other “overall benefits,” as the article also states.  Vitamins are absorbed faster and more efficiently when they come directly from food, for instance.  And dark leafy vegetables are a great source of calcium (that doesn’t leach protein back out of your bones like calcium from milk).  Immune system support is obviously readily available through Vitamin C in a variety of produce.  All the more reason to increase our intake!
