They found that people who didn't consumed much fruit or vegetables died about 37 months before people who ate five portions daily, the Daily Express reported.

Adults who never consumed fruit died 19 months before than those who consumed at least one piece daily and those who never ate a vegetable outlived people consuming three a day by 32 months.

The study has been published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
