These findings solidify evidence that this dietary correlation could also be a causation of cardiovascular problems for many.
An international study led by scientists at Monash University in Australia yielded evidence confirming that low fiber diets may lead to high blood pressure, a disease afflicting extremely sizeable portions of the global population.
