Dietary fiber intake and ischaemic heart disease mortality: the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition-Heart study.

Consistent consumption of high fiber diets may help reduce ischaemic heart disease mortality risk.

This study evaluated the relationship between dietary fiber intake and ischaemic heart disease mortality (IHD) risk. Researchers reviewed dietary and clinical records of 306,331 men and women recruited from eight European countries. They observed that regular consumers of high fiber diets had slim chances of dying from ischaemic heart disease. The consumption of an extra 10g of dietary fiber per day was found to decrease ischaemic heart disease mortality risk by 15%. The findings of this study reveal that generous intake of fiber-rich foods may confer individuals with adequate protection against deaths due to ischemic heart disease.
