Is dietary fiber really that important? – Monterey Herald

Reader B.D. posed this problem to me this week:  “I’d respect your opinion as a dietician on this text on dietary fiber.”

The article, “Does a excessive fiber eating regimen forestall illness?” written by Sebastian Rushworth, MD — a junior doctor in Stockholm, Sweden who graduated from medical faculty in 2020 — challenges what he says is “the now widespread perception that dietary fiber is a vital a part of a nutritious diet.”

Rushworth factors out that observational knowledge (research on the reported habits of individuals) “discover a correlation between a low fiber eating regimen and just about any continual illness you care to take a look at. The randomized trials which have been performed have nonetheless for essentially the most half failed to point out proof of a profit of accelerating consumption of dietary fiber.”
