Chalk up yet another potential protection for people who make a habit of fruits and veggies – this time from the symptoms of the skin condition psoriasis.
In a study in Italy, people without psoriasis were more likely than people with psoriasis to eat fresh fruit two times a day. What else were they more likely to eat? Tomatoes every day and carrots three times a week, reports the British Journal of Dermatology.
This study doesn’t prove that eating fruits and veggies lowers your risk. But it’s another hint that diets high in produce really do pay off.
