Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Key risk factors for developing heart disease include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, as well as using tobacco.
To prevent it, add more fiber and whole grains in your diet. This is because most of the cholesterol-raising saturated fat comes from animal meat and full-fat dairy products. Soluble fiber found in beans, oats, psyllium and oat bran may help lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein, or “bad,” cholesterol levels and helps in lowering the blood pressure. Besides, soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream and slow down the absorption of sugar thus helping improve blood sugar levels.

Dietary fiber plays an important role in colon cancer prevention
Dietary fiber is an important nutrient which helps our bodies stay healthy. Research indicates that it has a beneficial effect on colon cancer prevention.
Dietary fiber may decrease the risk of colorectal cancer by several mechanisms, including increasing stool bulk, diluting faecal carcinogens and decreasing transit time, thus reducing the contact between carcinogens and the lining of the colorectum.
Also, bacterial fermentation of fiber results in the production of short chain fatty acids, which may have protective effects against colorectal cancer. Fruit, vegetable, legume and cereal may also protect against colorectal cancer, including antioxidants, vitamins, trace minerals, phytate, phenolic acids, lignans, and phytoestrogens.
Prevention is always better than cure.
