we have to eat mush fiber fruit ,vegetables
Where we get more fiber?
Change required Increase the intake of fruits, vegetables, especially legumes, wholegrain bread and cereals. Decrease the intake of processed foods.
low fiber intake. leads to poor digestive health; diets low in fiber or high in fat, increase the risk for constipation, diverticular disease, hemorrhoids, and also to possible like to cancer of the colon. the changes required for a better health and to be able to prevent the above diseases are; increase the intake of fruits, vegetables, especially legumes, wholegrain bread and cereals. Decrease the intake of processed foods.
women should try to eat at least 21 to 25 grams of fiber a day example ; breakfast with an oatmel cooked with strawberrys 1 cup 1 medium banana apple with skin respberrys ;)
Can lead to increased of colon cancer;low fruit/vegetable consumption...high deep fried food consumption....high fast food consumption...high dairy product consumption.
What is low fibre intake
Diet high in plant material are healthy than meat and animal products.
Diverticular disease result from a diet which is low in plant foods,please what are this plant food?
Dietary fiber, the indigestible component of plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes, offers a host of health benefits. Fiber helps to soften stools, allowing solid waste to pass more quickly and easily through the digestive tract. This helps to maintain bowel health and regularity. The recommended daily intake of dietary fiber is 25 grams of fiber for women and 38 grams for men. Yet, most Americans consume less than half of the recommended daily fiber intake. Over time, a deficiency in dietary fiber can increase the possibility of developing certain health conditions.

* results from a diet which is low in plant foods. When intake of dietary
fibre is high it adds bulk to the contents of the colon and holds water so
that waste products from digestion remain soft and pass quickly out of the
body. When the fibre content is low, less bulk is present and the water
content is low, requiring more muscular effort to push the wastes through
the colon. This increased pressure can lead to stretching of the muscular
walls of the colon. If pouches form in the walls, some of the waste
products can be cut off from the main passageway. Eventually, the pouches
will become inflamed and cause discomfort.
* rates as the second most commmon cancer among the Australian
population. The incidence of the cancer increases with age and it is rarely
seen in people under the age of 40 years. Bowel polyps can be detected by
testing. Families where there is a history of colorectal cancer are advised
to have regular checks for the presence of polyps. Apart form the genetic
predisposition, other causes of colorectal cancer appear to be diet
related. There is much evidence to suggest a diet high in plant materials
and low in meat and other animal products protect against this cancer.
Phytochemicals  obviously play an important part in protecting against
