"Animal Fibre"

I like reading things that make me smack my forehead and think, "You idiot: why didn't you think of that!"

This is one of those posts:

Fruits and veggies, fermented or otherwise, aren’t the only source of prebiotics in your diet. Eat a whole sardine and some of the ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage will surely escape digestion to reach the distal intestine where they will be fermented by the resident microbes.
Read the whole thing, but this explains why populations that don't eat much or any plant fiber, like the Maasai warriors or Eskimos of yore, do perfectly fine.
