Keep your heart healthy by avoiding sugary drinks!

Only 1 in 10 adults eat the recommended 1.5–2 cups/day of fruit and 2–3 cups/day of vegetables.
A study from the American Society for Nutrition found that low fruit intake can cause 1 in 7 deaths from heart disease and low vegetable intake can cause 1 in 12.
