10 g/d increment of dietary fiber intake was associated with a 31%reduction in baretts esaphagus and esaphagus cancer risk
Google title for abstract.   
16,ooo people. Oct 2015.
Reflects my personal success with LOTS of fiber and better health.
My fiber intake back in the days was a joke. How much fiber is in pizza and ice cream anyway.      Lol

Thanks teacher man. Here's a link,

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26462851

This is a meta-analysis of previous studies, hence the large cohort involved.

I also have had improved symptoms due to modification of diet and now eat very little processed and convenience foods.

Hi Jeff, I'm not sure. But the data jives with my own personal success with fiber.    So I like the data. But since they quote barretts I'm sure they would check for it.   Right? But? Anyway, I've preached fiber due to my own success with it.   Now the repor helps me keep motivated in a healthy way.
. i am sure, that when I eat high fiberous foods and stay away from most anything that comes pre packaged I feel better.    
My sugar is nearly out. At least added sugar.   
I have changed from flaxseed meal. Which is pre ground and now grind my own flaxseeds which I keep in my freezer. Fats can go rancid.   The fiber in flaxseeds is a wonderful wonderful component of my feel good food lifestyle.   
Although, too much fiber "might" be bad so I don't go over board. But it's up there. At least compared to my old lifestyle.   Phil, I agree. I feel so much better and stay away from all that crap. I used to love that stuff but things have changed. It took years but it's finally coming together.
Lots of fiber. Insolvable and soluable . Plus drink fair amount of water for the extra fiber.
Lots of omega 3 fats
No to little add sugar
Meat only once every 10 days or so
Fish 2-3 times per week
Lots of leafy greens and lots of berries, seeds, and avacado in my smoothies
Needs: need ways to include beans into my diet and califlower.
Home made probiotics. I took a class on making Kiefer from coconuts and how to make sour kraut . Totally misspelled it. Sorry.
I haven't made them yet. I just took the class. This weekend.
I'm actually enjoying this new found freedom with healthy foods and I've lost my cravings for sugar and carbs.   Knock on wood and hope it lasts.

Hi Jeff, re 'How'.

It's a good question.

Unfortunately we do not have access to the full article, so do not have the detail, but it is concluded with the suggestion that this phenomenon is worthy of further study.

It sounds to me like an increase in fibre intake and wholesome, home cooked food is likely to be a good thing.

teacher man,

we often make a bake of cauliflower and broccoli cheese, that we serve with baked beans and a fried egg. It's a good wholesome meal, cheap too!

On the subject of fiber, see

for some much more intersting salads. They need not be boring!

Sounds delicious Phil. Healthy too.
Chris should make another link for great healthy recipes that members like and can share. With the understanding that reflux can happen with any food for the general public. And It would be a fun link. Obviously not medical. But most likely very medicinal. The barretts foodies link.
Have a great day everyone.

I did read the abstract of this paper published a few weeks ago. It was a meta-analysis of pooled data using PubMed and Embase review. "A total of 15 studies involving 16,885 subjects were included in the meta-analysis."

I don't know how the derived their finding that 10g/day reduced Barrett's risk by 31%. I don't have a subscription to Taylor & Francis who published it in Critical Reviews in Food Sciences & Nutrition and am not prepared to pay £200 for the issue in which this appears (nor even the £30 just for this article)!

I would be sceptical if it were considered this applied to everyone as I know some (particularly amongst those with achalasia) cannot tolerate some fibre. But I'm all for a healthy diet.

You probably know Barrett's Wessex produced a "Cool Food cookbook" available by clicking on this link or ordered as a printed copy from this page of the BOC website.
It is still very popular and we have discussed a second volume but we need contributors.
