Vegetable and fruit intakes and risk of Barrett's esophagus in men and women. The results of this study support previous findings that increased intakes of vegetables and of vegetables and fruit are associated with a lower risk of BE in men and women. Prospective data that examine relations between diet and Barrett’s esophagus are needed. O. M. Thompson, Am J Clin Nutr. January 14, 2009, (Also see : Barrett's Esophagus)

Me too! You should see the garden I put in every year. I also planted fruit trees and bushes, strawberries, raspberries, currants, grapes. This is our 9th year in this house and things are really getting going. Last summer the Handsome Hubby was heard to say plaintively to #2 son that he thought summer was for BBQ's, not a nearly-vegetarian diet. :lol:
