Dietary Fiber and Cholesterol Reduction Course for Physician is organized by ContinuingEducation.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held during Jul 16, 2013 - Apr 13, 2020.
Plant foods are a hot topic again, this time for the protective benefits of their fiber. We know that plant foods are low in calories and rich in micronutrients and phytochemicals, encourage satiety, and “keep us regular.” Increasing evidence shows that dietary fiber (both soluble and insoluble) plays a multifactorial role in the battle against the No. 1 cause of death worldwide: cardiovascular disease. Yet the majority of Americans consume less than half the recommended intake and do not understand the importance of dietary fiber to health. This course explains the health benefits of fiber, offering healthcare practitioners the opportunity to encourage their patients and clients to increase their intake of fiber-rich plant foods.
