The vast majority of adults do not eat enough fruits and vegetables, according to a new CDC study. The data comes from a long-term study of almost 300,000 Americans over more than 30 years. The current dietary guidelines recommend adults eat 2 to 3 cups of vegetables and 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit each day.

The researchers did find that women met these recommendations more than men, and adults over 50 met them more often than younger adults.
