Fibre: not so great?

Dr. Michael R. Eades rips into fibre, suggesting that the need for regular bowel movements isn't what it's cracked up to be. If he's right (he doesn't really destroy the idea, just suggest that the mechanism behind it seems strange), then it would support the Paleo Diet idea that grains (which are high in fibre) are bad.

Hmmm, might stop adding the psyllium husk to my muesli ...
