Take Heart!
Eat More Fruits and Veggies, NYC Doctors Say

 New York City doctors are prescribing fruits and vegetables to obese or overweight patients. Last month, Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs and Health Commissioner Thomas Farley launched the Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program available for at-risk families to help them have access to healthier foods. This program allows obese or overweight patients to obtain Health Bucks, which are redeemable for produce at more than 140 local farmers markets.

What a great initiative to curb obesity and related diseases! After all, we are what we eat.
