Dietary Fiber and its ability to lower Risk of Diabetes & Hypertension

According to Dr Neil Barnard, Fiber moves carcinogens along and out of the human body. Fibers removes things circulating in the blood that should not be there. Liver is filtering the blood stream 24/7 and keeping away things that do not belong there like excess hormones . Liver pulls toxins out and sends them to the intestinal tract where these get attached to Fiber and this Fiber carries them out of the body. Beneficial Fiber comes from plants. So it is good idea to eat ( not juice) carrots, celery, bell peppers, cucumbers and the like. Fiber May help trim the waistline, lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar and even reduce the Risk of Cancer.
