Cancer-Preventing Properties of Fiber

You can't have a functioning waste management system without fiber, which is continually flushing out cancer-causing toxins.

 By speeding up the digestive process, fiber helps reduce the risk of colorectal cancer by eliminating cancer-causing substances.

A low-fat, high-fiber diet rich in fruits and vegetables was used in the Polyp Prevention Trial (PPT), a research conducted by the National Cancer Institute.

Scientists examined the frequency with which polyps (adenomas) of the colon returned.

Bean consumption was the only dietary factor remaining after controlling for other factors in determining whether or not study participants had a recurrence of adenomas.

Many experts attribute this to the fact that beans were the primary source of fiber for the vast majority of people in the study.

However, fiber's cancer-fighting properties aren't limited to preventing colon cancer. Cancers of the breast, prostate, mouth, and throat are also protected against by this.

The advantages are considerable, too. According to research published in the Annals of Oncology, decreasing your risk of colorectal cancer by 10% .

A research published in Pediatrics found that women whose daily fiber intake was at least 28 grams compared to the average daily fiber intake.

The research found that the women who ingested the most fiber had a 16% lower chance of acquiring breast cancer over the course of their lives.
