Vegetable, fruit, and cereal intake and risk of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in Japan.

Generous consumption of fruit fiber may reduce the likelihood of acquiring idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Researchers discovered that high consumption of fruit fiber lessened the risk of having idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. "Our findings suggest that fruit intake may confer protection against the development of IPF," concluded the authors.
