International studies have shown that people who eat wholegrain and high-fibre foods regularly are less likely to develop bowel cancer, the most common cancer in Australia... Wholegrain foods also appear to offer some protection against stomach cancer, and the high phytoestrogen levels found in wholegrains, and especially in pulses, may play a part in protecting against breast and prostate cancer... Food made with wholegrain, or ground wholegrain in the form of wholemeal flour, contains all parts of the grain - the bran, germ and endosperm - making them higher in fibre than products made from refined grains...

Parents weighed all the food their children ate over three days, and researchers calculated whether children were receiving adequate amounts of key nutrients and fibre as part of the study... While the study indicated that most of the children were receiving the recommended amounts of iron, zinc, calcium and vitamin C, only 18 per cent were getting enough fibre... About 14 grams of fibre a day is considered adequate for children aged one to three years, but the study revealed that children aged one to two years are only eating an average of nine grams of fibre a day...

Due to the speed and strain placed on a fibre by the mechanisation used in these processes, any imperfections, whether man made or natural, will cause significant production losses in the spinning mill and potentially create an unsalable product... There are eight stages in yarn formation: opening and cleaning - where trash embedded in the fibres is removed where possible blending - where fibres from different bales are mixed to product uniform characteristics carding - where individual fibres are opened to remove dust and impurities... The fabric is chemically prepared and colour dyed...

Grains need raised awareness as good health triggers.. There is a lack of understanding of the additional and wide-ranging benefits of fibre for disease risk reduction and, as a result, there is a lack of appreciation of the importance of eating a variety of high-fibre foods as part of a balanced diet... To enjoy the health benefits of a wide range of dietary fibres, Australians are encouraged to eat a variety of fibre-rich plant foods including grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds (Table 1) as part of a balanced diet...
