DESCRIPTION: The parable of the tiny parachute explains the study that found no relationship between dietary fiber intake and diverticulosis.
What the heck is the parable of which I speak? See Dr. Katz’s brilliant Lifestyle Medicine and the Parable of the Tiny Parachute (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-katz-md/diet-and-nutrition_b_5596931.html).
This is a follow-up to my last video Diverticulosis: When Our Most Common Gut Disorder Hardly Existed (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diverticulosis-when-our-most-common-gut-disorder-hardly-existed). Make sure you catch this “prequel.”
This reminds me of an ancient video I did Flawed Study Interpretation (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flawed-study-interpretation-2/).
People commonly ask Do Vegetarians Get Enough Protein? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/do-vegetarians-get-enough-protein/) but maybe should be more concerned where everyone else is getting their fiber. 97% of Americans don’t even reach the recommended daily minimum.
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-fiber-really-prevent-diverticulosis and he’ll try to answer it!
