Park et al concluded their study by stating that “A diet rich in dietary fiber may provide significant health benefit.”1(pE7) Crowe et al2 recently reported their observations of the 519 978 men and women from the 10 European countries collaborating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort. They concluded in this large series that “participants consuming at least eight portions (80 g each) of fruits and vegetables a day had a 22% lower risk of fatal ischemic heart disease (IHD) compared with those consuming fewer than three portions a day.”2
