A diet high in fiber is associated with many health benefits, including a lower mortality rate, according to a large review of several studies. Researchers found that the people who ate the most fiber, about 25 to 30 grams a day, had a 15-30% reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, colorectal cancer and death. This was when compared to people who consumed the least fiber, less than 15 grams a day. A high-fiber diet was also linked to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and body weight. Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts and grains.
