Eat Fiber, Live Longer

Fiber has long been seen as a key component of health.

Although I have concentrated more on associating fiber with dieting, this article mentioned another benefit of consuming fiber.

“High-fiber diet reduces the risks of death from cardiovascular, infectious and respiratory diseases.”

Now, this is a great article, but it has one major mistake…..

WHERE IS THE LOVE FOR KOMBU!!!!

For your information, I posted the per 100 gram comparison of KOMBU to the items mentioned in the article.

Anemia? Iron Deficient? Try Kombu (Kelp)

Ok. We all know that ehow.com is not exactly the most reliable/legitimate source, but the information provide hear is indeed true. I used this article since it was simple to understand compared to various science journals.

What you can get out of this article is that Kombu or seaweeds contain a high level or iron and would be a great addition to your diet; especially if you are vegetarian.

When it comes to Kelp, the primary introduction seems to be tablets, but try including it as a broth or use strips of Kombu and add it to your beans!

Seaweed is something vegetarians should have a STRONG interest in.
