FibreAccording to Harvard researchers, the more fibre you eat, the more likely you are to survive a heart attack.

For each 10g of daily fibre you eat, you decrease your chances of dying from a heart attack by 15 per cent! We should, as a nation, be eating a recommended 38g of fibre every day, but most of us fall short of that by at least 50 per cent.

Perhaps this news will encourage more people to include more vegetables, nuts, apples, whole grains and legumes in their diets! In my opinion, fibre should be naturally contained within the food not added in your diet as bran.
