Dietary fiber is anything that moves through the gastro-intestinal tract, is not digested and is eliminated as a waste product (faeces). Refined food like soft drinks, pizzas, burgers(junk food) alters the gastro intestinal functions and causes obesity and other digestive problems. Dietary fiber present in fruit and vegetables helps eliminate toxic wastes from the body. http://www.howshealth.com (source)
