The Harvard School of Public Health research, which included over 367,000 AARP members, aged 50 to 71 years, from six states and two large cities, found that people who had a diet rich in cereal fiber in the morning, lived longer as compared to those who didn't, the CNN reported.

The results showed that people who had more amount of cereal fiber had 19% reduced risk of death as compared to those who had less. It was also found that high fiber cereal eaters had a 34% lower risk of death from diabetes, and a 15% reduced risk of death from cancer. People who ate a lot of whole grains and dietary fiber had a 17% lower risk of all-cause mortality.

It was concluded that cereal fiber led to a really healthy and premature death-preventing diet. One needed to eat at least 10.22 grams of cereal fiber per day based on a 1,000 kcal daily diet.

Lori Zanini, a dietitian, said that no animal product naturally had fiber and it was the cell walls of plants from where fiber came from.

The study is published in BMC Medicine.
