Fiber is essential for human health and a shortage of it in the diet can promote many disorders of the digestive tract. Even people who are eating diets high in fiber-rich cooked vegetables may not be getting the fiber they need to prevent these diseases because the fiber is partially broken down by cooking. Colon and rectal cancer are the second leading cause of death in the United States. Fiber helps to prevent colorectal cancer, constipation, diverticulosis and most other illnesses of the lower bowel. Fiber also slows the absorption of sugar and is, therefore, beneficial to diabetics and hypoglycemics.
All animal products, such as beef, chicken, fish, lamb, pig, shellfish, turkey and goat have no fiber whatsoever. All dairy products, such as cheese, yogurt and butter, are fiber-less. Eggs contain no fiber either. But all fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and grains contain ample amounts of fiber before processing.
Modern statistics show that, in Africa, the average diet has around seven times more fiber than the American diet, and colon/rectal problems are rare, while they are commonplace in the United States. In fact the countries around the globe that consume more fiber have a much lower incidence of intestinal cancers than the more 'modern' countries that consume much less fiber.For more information on Fiber, check out the book, Raw Foods Bible.
