Special measures could in the future contribute to lower public health costs by helping to decrease the incidence of costly chronic diseases: Guidelines advising a much higher intake of fruits and vegetables have already been established to reduce the risk for certain diseases such as some types of cancer and coronary heart disease. Covering a wide spectrum of topics, this publication will not only be of interest to nutritionists, pathophysiologists and epidemiologists, but also to Public Health authorities and food and vitamin manufacturers.
