Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables may help keep your leg arteries free of blockages, a new study suggests.

“Our study gives further evidence for the importance of incorporating more fruits and vegetables in the diet,” said study co-author Dr. Sean Heffron. He’s an instructor in medicine at New York University School of Medicine.

People with peripheral artery disease have narrowing of the leg arteries, which limits blood flow to the muscles and makes it difficult or painful to walk or stand.
