High fiber rescue!

People who have a high intake of dietary fiber also have a lower risk of developing coronary heart disease. In fact, even if you’ve already had a heart attack, a high fiber diet can bring a 25% lower chance of dying in the first nine years after a heart attack when compared with people who ate less fiber. High dietary fiber can improve blood lipid levels and reduce the risk of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. A high fiber diet also brings a decreased risk of colorectal cancer. Food fiber is fuel for the friendly bacteria in the colon where over 80% of the immune system is built. Fiber keeps food from stagnating in the bowels and increase motility. A shocking 5% or less of Americans consume the minimum recommended fiber intake of 25g per day for women and 38g per day for men whereas most people eat an average of only 14g.

Good for what ails ya that fiber is.
