According to the authors, fibre is not the simple roughage it was once thought to be and it does not come alone. Found in plant foods, fibre is a complex substance and in whole foods it is always accompanied by a number of nutrients, from antioxidants, essential oils, minerals, and proteins, to vitamins and beyond. This book spells out exactly why good health depends on fibre's presence in everyone's diet.
