Fruit, vegetable eaters viewed more attractive

November 20, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
A new British study says people who eat fruits and vegetables are judged more attractive by the opposite sex. Researchers say participants identified a certain "rosy glow" to the skin that shows up when people eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

Scientists say it probably comes from the carotenoid pigment in produce.

One of the researchers says good examples of this healthy, attractive look include Hollywood stars Keira Knightly and Johnny Depp, and musician Myleene Klass.
