A new study suggests that consuming a high-fiber diet may reduce the risk of lung disease. Study author Corrine Hanson said, “Lung disease is an important public health problem, so it’s important to identify modifiable risk factors for prevention. However, beyond smoking, very few preventative strategies have been identified. Increasing fiber intake may be a practical and effective way for people to have an impact on their risk of lung disease.”

The researchers looked at data from nearly 2,000 American adults aged 40 to 79. The researchers found that nearly 68 percent of participants who consumed the highest amounts of fiber – 18 grams or more a day – had normal lung function, compared to 50 percent of those with the lowest fiber content.
