Wellness Tip ~

A diet with more fiber and whole grains may mean a lower risk of death and disease, a new analysis commissioned by the World Health Organization has found. Researchers noted that people who had higher intakes of dietary fiber and whole grains had lower rates of chronic diseases, like heart disease, cancer and diabetes, compared to those with diets low in fiber and whole grains. The study, published in the peer-reviewed health journal The Lancet31809-9/fulltext), suggests eating at least 25 to 29 grams of dietary fiber per day in order to achieve these health benefits. Higher intakes could produce more benefits.
