seven accepted measures of well-being, they found that
happiness and mental health rise in proportion to the number of
daily servings of fruit and vegetables, peaking at 7-8
servings of 2.8 ounces each.
The pattern remains "remarkably robust" when adjusted for a
large number of other demographic, social and economic variables,
the study found.
Even after isolating confounding variables, it was found that
individuals consuming at least 7 servings a day were 2.7 percent
happier than those who eat almost no fruit and vegetables.
The authors note that the rise in life satisfaction is larger
than "being a non-smoker [1.9 percent], is only a little less than
that from being married [3.6 percent], and in absolute size is
more than half the coefficient of having a longstanding illness
[negative 4.3 percent]. Being unemployed, which is known from
