According to a review published by The Lancet, a high-fiber diet can lead to a 15% – 30% reduction in deaths due to heart disease and in all-cause mortality. It can also reduce the incidence of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and colorectal cancer by 16% – 24%. The UK Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition recommends 30 grams of fiber a day; most people get only about half. Even a small increase of 8 grams of fiber eaten per day can reduce deaths from these diseases by 5% – 27%, while also protecting against stroke and breast cancer. The higher the intake of fiber, the greater the protection.

The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal. It is among the world’s oldest and best-known general medical journals.
Findings from prospective studies and clinical trials associated with relatively high intakes of dietary fibre and whole grains were complementary, and striking dose-response evidence indicates that the relationships to several non-communicable diseases could be causal. Implementation of recommendations to increase dietary fibre intake and to replace refined grains with whole grains is expected to benefit human health.
