Are yellowish teeth good for us? - in Chinese (updated)

Fibre is more powerful than we thought

High fiber diets could control diabetics' blood sugar better than we ever realized, new research suggests.

For decades, nutritionists have urged everyone - diabetes diagnosis or not - to load up on leafy greens, whole grains, and bananas since their fiber content keeps digestion stable and smooth.

But new research by Rutgers University has found fiber plays a far more active role than ever recorded in nurturing the gut bacteria that control blood sugars and fats.

The findings could pave the way to personalized high-fiber diets as a first-line treatment for the disease, which affects 29.1 million Americans.

You do not need to quit sugar to improve your health

Advice from Tara Leong, a lecturer in Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of the Sunshine Coast.

You don't need to quit sugar to lift your game on healthy eating. Quitting sugar is unlikely to improve your health any more than cutting down on ultra-processed foods, eating more vegetables, cooking food from scratch and limiting how much extra sugar you eat and drink.

At best, the sugar-free diet is confusing and imposes an arbitrary set of rules that aren't based on scientific evidence. At worst, such a restrictive diet can create food fear or an unhealthy relationship with food or cutting out the good stuff as in fruits.

What to do instead 

Eat plenty of plants, enjoy whole grains, beans and legumes. Fruit is your friend – not your enemy.

Most people could probably eat a little less sugar, a little less often, but you don't have to quit it for good to be healthy.
