A large and new study helps eat lots of grains, vegetables and fruits that reduce the risk of cancer or heart disease at an early age.
Compared to those with low fiber, at the end of the fiber feed spectrum, people were diagnosed with dying of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and / or colon cancer, the researchers said.
In addition, the team concluded that it is more definitely more: each person consumes 8 grams of dietary fiber per supplement, the risk of each of these diseases is between 5 and 27 years old.
"Fuel health benefits are backed by more than 100 years of influence on chemistry, physical properties, physiology, and metabolism," said Andrew Reynolds researcher, a postdoctoral researcher at Otago University in New Zealand.
"What really surprised us is the range of conditions that seemed to improve the dietary fiber," added Reynolds. "Heart disease, type 2 diabetes and colon cancer are the most damaging diseases of our time."
The results have reached the results of 185 investigations carried out over the last four decades and more than 58 clinical trials are involved. More than 4,600 participants.
Reynolds and his colleagues worked under the direction of the World Health Organization (WHO), published online by The Lancet.
Research groups worldwide consume less than 20 grams of fiber every day, currently between 15 grams per day.
Examples of foods: 1 whole wheat bread slices with 2 grams of fiber; 1 cup broccoli cooked in 5 grams; 1 medium orange contains 3 grams and 1 cup beans are black, 15 grams.
