Researchers at the University of Leeds in the UK say that people who get more fiber in their daily diet are less likely to have a stroke than those who don’t ingest much of the nutrient. Researchers found the risk of having a first stroke lowered by seven percent for every seven gram increase in daily fiber intake. The average U.S. woman gets 13 grams of fiber per day, while men get 17 grams, both below the Institute of Medicine recommendation of 24 and 35 grams per day, respectively. Foods that are high in fiber tend to be low calorie and help people maintain a healthy weight. (foxnews.com)
