Answer: The healthful, benefits of vegetables are well documented. They are high in many vitamins, minerals and cancer-fighting chemicals. Tomatoes and peppers are high in vitamin C and garlic and onions in antibacterial compounds. Lettuce and cucumbers (pickles) are less beneficial, but still necessary for fiber and trace minerals. Olives contain the "good types" of fatty acids needed in the cardiovascular system. Check our website (www.garden.org) for stories on healthful vegetables.
