Default Fiber is the root of all evil?

Just read an interesting book on this subject - very well written and has compelling evidence that the statement in the subject line is true and we've been lied to for a looooong time.

Highly recommend this book.

As a nutrition major I have to say that the scientific evidence of fiber playing a big role in health is very evident. Not sure what kind of evidence they are basing this book on. I'm talking about scientific peer reviewed journals, studies, etc. I will be taking a look into this though as it does sound interesting and it's always good to hear different perspectives, as long as there is good evidence

I can't frankly see that anything is the root of all evil. That's putting a huge burden on one part of the human diet. Heavy fats are the root of all evil, sugars are the root of all evil, this is, that is. We are learning more in the nutrition field all the time, and in the long run, we have to face the fact that we are omnivores and have been for a long time . . . and we come from a genetic background of relative scarcity. Those two things alone are responsible for the varieties of response to all sorts of foodstuffs.

I doubt that anything is the fundamental boogeyman, as long as it's eaten in relative balance. No need to go to the Paleolithic diet, but just be intelligent.
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.
