High Intake of Fiber Cuts the Risk of Non-Communicable Diseases

fiber-cuts-risk-of-non-communicable-diseases

According to number of observational studies and clinical trials carried out over approximately forty years, higher intake of fiber and whole grains (25–29g or more daily) is associated with lower risk of developing non-communicable diseases.

Non-communicable (or chronic) diseases are the conditions of long duration and normally slow progression. They include four types of diseases: cardiovascular (heart attacks and stroke), cancer, chronic respiratory diseases (chronic obstructed pulmonary disease and asthma), and diabetes.

Corresponding author Professor Jim Mann from the University of Otago, New Zealand, say: “Previous reviews and meta-analyses have usually examined a single indicator of carbohydrate quality and a limited number of diseases so it has not been possible to establish which foods to recommend for protecting against a range of conditions. Our findings provide convincing evidence for nutrition guidelines to focus on increasing dietary fibre and on replacing refined grains with whole grains. This reduces incidence risk and mortality from a broad range of important diseases.”
