More on the Inverted Jenny

A new study has found a direct link between eating fruits and vegetables and strong bones.

Scientists at Cambridge University, in the United Kingdom, found that teenagers who ate healthy amounts of vegetables and fruits and otherwise consumed lots of Vitamin C had neck and spine bones that were stronger and heavier than teens who didn't each such foods. Especially as teens, boys and girls need as many important nutrients as they can get in order to mature with strong bones and muscles.

The study also found higher levels of vital nutrients like potassium and folic acid in the teens who ate a lot of fruits and vegetables than in those who did not.
