part of the human diet for thousands of years. Early man cultivated
as wheat, oats, barley and rice for their early survival. It allowed
civilizations to grow and feed themselves without having to worry about
animals. All that was needed was fertile soil and lots of water to
plentiful crop of food for both people and the animals that they were
raising. Grain was necessary to sustain people who were
constantly doing physical labor.as a way to provide housing and food
for their families. There was once a time when humans got more exercise
daily than we do now so I recommend keeping your grain intake to a
minimum if any at all. Many people are beginning to avoid eating any
grains and rice. These people believe that grains such as wheat is
toxic in the human body and that it was never meant for human
consumption. Today, we have the option of doing a good google search to
find the answers to questions that we may have.

edible food material that passes through the intestinal tract
undigested is referred to as fiber. There are two kinds of fiber:
soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber forms a jelly-like substance in
the intestines and water content in the stool is increased.
fiber is found in citrus fruits, legumes (dried beans), oats, and
barley. Researchers have found that soluble fiber decreases blood
cholesterol and results in a lower blood sugar after meals.
fiber is famous for increasing your feeling of fullness, stool size
and bulk and helps reduce constipation and hemorrhoids. Insoluble
fiber includes wheat bran, whole cereal grains and vegetables.
Researchers have suggested that insoluble fibers may reduce colon
cancer. These fibers drag unwanted waste from the digestive system
and help prevent toxic waste build up. Meat and dairy products tend
to slow down the process.
the North American continent people consume less than 50% of the
minimum dietary fiber levels required for maintaining optimal health.

show that rural Africans, who eat a diet high in grains and fiber,
usually eliminate waste in about one-third of the time it takes
people from urban, American cultures. Their stools are larger and
softer. Because of the greater bulk and the speed that the food
travel through the digestive tract, it is believed that harmful toxic
substances are also swept out of the body before they can cause any
problems. This is the case in most of the rural communities around
rural China, the people do not suffer from the same diseases that the
people in the large modernized, mega cities of China suffer. The
health situation in Hong Kong is very similiar to those found in
large American cities.
