High fibre diet reduces chronic disease risk

High fibre diets make for healthier lives

"Observational data suggest a 15-30 percent decrease in all-cause and cardiovascular related mortality, and incidence of coronary heart disease, stroke incidence and mortality, type 2 diabetes, and colorectal cancer when comparing the highest dietary fiber consumers with the lowest consumers", they wrote.

Mann said the health benefits of dietary fibre - contained in foods such as whole grains, pulses, vegetables and fruit - come from its chemistry, physical properties, physiology and its effects on metabolism.

The analysis found a 15 to 30 percent reduced risk of death and chronic diseases in people who included the most fiber in their diets, compared with those with the lowest intake. Based on the research, he recommends 25 grams (0.88 ounces) to 29 grams (1.02 ounces) of fiber each day.

According to the study, most people worldwide now consume less than 20g of dietary fibre a day.

A good target for those wanting to reap health gains would be to eat 25g to 29g of dietary fibre a day, the analysis found.

However, their findings imply that while low-carb diets are popular with people wishing to lose weight, this risks the health benefits from eating whole grain fibre.

However, the study found only limited support that diets with a low glycemic index and low glycemic load offered protection against type 2 diabetes and stroke.

Cesc Fabregas delighted to join Monaco's 'new project'
Batshuayi returned to Chelsea this month after an uninspiring spell at Valencia on loan, scoring just once in La Liga. Vainqueur added: "My first feeling was disappointment when I knew I was not ready to play for AS Monaco immediately".

Generally, on average, most people get only about 20 grams of fiber a day.

In practice, note that the required daily fiber intake is ultimately considerable. These studies involved initially healthy participants, so the findings can not be applied to those with existing chronic diseases.

Speaking to The Guardian, Mann said that the findings considerably challenge many popular diets that reject carbohydrates due to their correlation with sugar.

Fibre rich fruits include bananas, oranges, apples, mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, while beans, legumes or darker coloured vegetables too have high-fibre content. The latest research is the most definitive evidence of the health benefits of a high fiber intake.

"Our findings provide convincing evidence for nutrition guidelines to focus on increasing dietary fibre and on replacing refined grains with whole grains".

"Fibre-rich whole foods that require chewing and retain much of their structure in the gut increase satiety and help weight control and can favourably influence lipid and glucose levels".

The authors of the review also stressed that these results mainly relate to natural, fibre rich foods and not the powdered, synthetic fibre which can be added to food.
