Diet: High Fiber to Combat Death and Disease

According to an article published in the New York Times, a study of almost 400,000 people aged 50-71 has shown a strong link between a high-fiber diet and longevity. The study found that those in the high-fiber diet group were less likely to die of cardiovascular, infectious, and respiratory disease. The diet was also associated with fewer cancer deaths in men, but not women.

You can read the study abstract in the February 14th online issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine.
