Scientists reveal that eating fruits and vegetables could make people cuterMarch 8th, 2012 - 10:34 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
London, Mar 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) For years, scientists have outlined the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables. The two groups of food are classified as the healthy diets but a new study will give you the more reason to want to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Scientists from the St. Andrews University conducted a study to determine the effect that consumption of fruits and vegetables have on the appearance of a person. The research was conducted on 35 people. All the study subjects were aged between 18 and 25 years.
Before the start of the study, the researchers took photographs of the participants. The researchers identified that after the study, the participants who took 2.9 more portions of fruits and vegetables looked healthier when compared with the others. When their portion was increased to 3.3 portions more, the researchers identified that it affected their looks, making them more attractive. The notable part of the body which was changed was the skin.
The study was published in the journal PLoS ONE.
Lead author, Ross Whitehead, explained that, “A lot of the people were already eating close to the recommended amount. But we found even a couple of extra portions could still make a difference to their skin color.”
