Live Longer, Live Well, Eat Fiber!

A recent study by researchers at the National Cancer Institute in Rockville, MD discovered that there is a reduced risk for many diseases associated with death from eating a diet high in fiber. The conditions studied included infectious, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. The findings were made after data was collected from nearly 400,000 men and women who took part in a study by the National Institute of Health - AARP and health study. More specifics on the study can be found here regarding intake of fiber.

Our recommendations is to seek out the consultation of your physician for the dosages that are appropriate based on your overall health condition. Fiber rich foods can include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, almonds and oat bran.
