Fruit & veg stop blood clots

Researchers from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health found that diets containing plenty of fruit and vegetables were associated with a lower risk of venous thromboembolisms (VTE), otherwise known as blood clots in the veins. Conversely, diets containing red and processed meats and a Western type diet were linked to an increased risk of VTE.
