In this study, researchers looked at the role of dietary fiber and risk of early death among 219,123 men and 168,999 women enrolled in the National Institutes of Health AARP Diet and Health Study. Researchers reviewed food questionnaires that participants had filled out assessing the amount of fiber they ate and followed them for nine years.
The study authors conclude, “The current Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend choosing fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, and whole grains frequently and consuming 14 grams/1,000 calories of dietary fiber. A diet rich in dietary fiber from whole plant foods may provide significant health benefits.”
