    We all know that fiber helps with digestion, but now scientists say it can protect against colon cancer and those developing in the small intestine, too. Researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) report that people who have a high intake of fiber from whole grains have a significant reduction in the risk of developing cancer in the small bowel. In fact, results showed that people with the highest intake of fiber from grains had a significant 49 percent reduction in the risk of developing small bowel cancer.


    Fiber decreases your risk of diabetes


    Meanwhile, another study reveals that a whole grain, high-fiber diet can also control and prevent type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes. In particular, barley which is rich in beta-glucan soluble fiber promotes healthy blood sugar and blood pressure while reducing cholesterol. The findings, published in Nutrition Research and the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, report that foods containing barley offer significant reductions in glucose and insulin responses (inherent to diabetes prevention and treatment) compared to products containing whole wheat and corn. To boost the barley in your diet, replace white rice with the grain.
