3) Dietary fiber present in vegetables helps reduce cholesterol levels and may lower the risk of heart disease. Fiber is mainly important to regulate bowel movements and to prevent constipation, and diverticulosis. It also provides a feeling of fullness while consuming less calories. 

4) Loading your plate with 4 to 5 servings of vegetables on a daily basis build a healthy immune system.
