Fiber Can Reduce the Risk of Developing Osteoarthritis, Study
A new research, which was a collaborative effort of researchers from Tufts University in Boston, USA, and the University of Manchester, UK, demonstrates that diet rich in fiber may cut the risk of developing osteoarthritis.
For the study, the researchers completed a meta-analysis of two long-term studies on the benefits of diets rich in fiber. The scientists found that the participants who consumed the most fiber had a 30% lower risk of osteoarthritis in OAI cohort, and 61% lower risk of OA in the Framingham cohort, compared with people who ate the least fiber.
Dr. Zhaoli Dai, a lead researcher of the study of the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging and Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, says: “Findings from two longitudinal studies consistently showed that higher total fiber intake was related to a lower risk of [symptomatic], while the relation to [incident radiographic OA] was unclear.”
