The benefits of fibre and wholegrains

Post by Kitkat on Sat 12 Nov 2011, 11:38

Yet another research study announcing a new 'discovery' that is already widely known.

Fibre and wholegrains 'reduce cancer risk'

High fibre cereals are just one type of fibre which were shown to help prevent colorectal cancer

Eating more cereals and whole grains could reduce the risk of developing colorectal cancer, a BMJ study says.

Researchers from Imperial College London found that for every
10g a day increase in fibre intake, there was a 10% drop in the risk of
bowel cancer.

I suppose putting a percentage mark on it makes it 'official'. Rolling Eyes
