YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY…
- 5 A Day (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is any of various national campaigns to encourage the consumption of at least five portions of fruit and vegetables each day, following a recommendation by the World Health Organization that individuals consume “a minimum of 400g of fruit and vegetables per day (excluding potatoes and other starchy tubers). It is clear that eating fruit and vegetables improves health. Increasing vegetable intake to this desired level has a variety of major and minor health benefits. Benefits include reduction in the risk of many types of cancer, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
- AIAM5 (ifava.org): The Global Alliance to promote fruit & vegetable consumption “5 a day” is a non-profit Forum of International Collaboration with non-legal status of its own, gathering national associations promoting consumption of fruit and vegetables.
- A marketplace, or market, (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is a location where people regularly gather for the purchase and sale of provisions, livestock, and other goods. The term market comes from the Latin mercatus (“market place”). Markets have existed since ancient times. Some historians have argued that a type of market has existed since humans first began to engage in trade. Across the Mediterranean and Aegean, a network of markets emerged from the early Bronze Age. A vast array of goods were traded including: salt, lapiz-lazuli, dyes, cloth, metals, pots, ceramics, statues, spears and other implements. Archaeological evidence suggests that Bronze Age traders segmented trade routes according to geographical circuits. Both produce and ideas travelled along these trade routes. In antiquity, markets were typically situated in the town’s centre. The market was surrounded by alleyways inhabited by skilled artisans, such as metal-workers, leather workers and carpenters. These artisans may have sold wares directly from their premises, but also prepared goods for sale on market days.
