Dietary fibre keeps you regular

True. Dietary fibre from cereals, fruits and vegetables can prevent constipation and produce bulky stools which are easy to eliminate and which therefore minimise straining and associated disorders such diverticular disease and haemorrhoids. Good source of dietary fibre are wholemeal and brown breads, muesli, brans, peas, beans, carrots, potatoes (in their jacket) apples (unpeeled), pears (unpeeled), bananas and dried fruits (see also WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT DIETARY FIBRE)
