Study suggests consumption of fruits, vegetables along with doing exercise makes you happier


The findings of a new study suggest that fruit and vegetable consumption along with exercise can aid in increasing levels of happiness. There is also positive causation from lifestyle to life satisfaction. This research is the first of its kind to unravel the causation of how happiness, the consumption of fruit and vegetables and exercising are related, rather than generalising a correlation. The research also shows that men appear to exercise more, and women eat more fruit and vegetables.

With it being well known that lifestyle diseases are a leading cause of ill health and mortality worldwide, and the UK having one of the highest obesity rates in Europe, these findings could have significant implications for public health policy.
