According to the August 2005 edition of the Harvard Men’s Health Watch, eating dietary fiber may reduce colon cancer risk by as much as 40%.
And not only does fiber protect against colon cancer, but studies show that it reduces the risk of diabetes, heart disease and intestinal problems, like diverticulosis.
Dr. Harvey Simon, editor-in-chief of the publication, advises people to “eat a good mix of high-fiber foods.”
Good sources of fiber include bran, plant stems and leaves, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables.
