Low-Fiber Diet Linked With Metabolic Syndrome

Low-Fiber Diet Linked With Metabolic Syndrome

Are you getting your fill of fiber?

A new study of more than 23,000 people shows that those who consume low amounts of fiber in their diets have a higher risk of conditions such as obesity, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular inflammation.

In addition, researchers also found that people in the study generally consumed lower amounts of fiber than is recommended by the Institute of Medicine.
