Bowel cancer warning: A traditional dish may increase your risk of the deadly disease

Sources of insoluble fibre include whole grains, such as brown rice, wheat, spelt, nuts, seeds, potato skins and dried figs.

Soluble fibre dissolves in water and forms a gel in the gut; good sources include oats, barley, beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas, apples and carrots.

It’s recommended to aim for at least 30g of fibre every day, but to increase the amount you eat daily in slow increments.

This is so that the body can adjust to the increase of fibre without causing pain, wind or bloating.
