Probably the most common deficiency in the U.S. diet is fiber. Fiber has played an important and traditional role in many countries where cholesterol intake is low. Only recently, we are finding the reasons as to why fiber is so effective. 
When fiber is consumed daily, studies have shown a significant decrease in serum cholesterol for 14 out of the 15 patients along with a decrease in tryglycerides and low density lipoproteins. U.S. Government reports show that increased dietary fiber has therapeutic value in diverticular disease, atonic constipation and certain hemorrhoidal conditions. Likewise, if you eat foods low in fiber, you tend to be constipated and harmful bacteria multiply in the large intestine. By eating a lot of fiber, potential carcinogens are not absorbed.
