RIVERDALE - According to researchers, seven servings of fruits and vegetables a day can be vital to your health.

The study showed that eating the seven servings can cut the risk of death from all causes by 42 percent.

The study looked at fruit and vegetable consumption within a 24-hour period and each serving was just under three ounces.

Most Bronx residents know the importance of getting in their fruits and vegetables, but some can't manage to get all seven servings. "I probably eat like one or two a day... I'm a candy guy," one resident said.
