The History

Fiber for Wellness Inc. was founded in 2008 by Mr. Emmanuel Enderlein. This public charity is based upon a lifetime of questions about the consumption of food, where it goes, what happens to it and its effect on health.

Mr. Enderlein's earliest questions were based upon his observations while serving food in a chow line in the United States Air Force. The first enlightening observations were simply this: the personnel, male or female, whose meals consisted of vegetables with small helpings of meat and potatoes, always asked for a large salad and had fruit instead of cake for dessert. Without exception, these individuals were trim, appeared fit and had good complexions.

On the other hand, the personnel whose meals consisted of extra meat, piled high with mashed potatoes and no vegetables, skipped the salad but always had the cake. Without exception, these individuals were heavy and unshapely with bad complexions.

In todayís world, "meat and potatoes" is the equivalent of our society's favorite fast food meal, a "burger and fries" - a sure fire path to serious, unhealthy obesity. 
What was the solution to obesity and general poor health? It was a question that took almost 50 years to resolve...
 
The answer arrived one day in 2001. A friend of Mr.Enderleinís, suffering with colon cancer for 10 years, asked for help regarding his constipation, knowing that Mr.Enderlein had a deep interest in general health.
That momentous phone call started a chain of events. A medical professional referred Mr. Enderlein to the Scott Memorial Library at Thomas Jefferson University, a prestigious Philadelphia medical school for research.
 
Then, a random seating at a banquet next to a colorectal specialist led to the suggestion to read the research work of Doctors Trowell and Burkitt on fiber.
 
Mr. Enderlein concluded from the doctors' medical studies that if people consumed diets rich with insoluble fiber, they would rarely suffer from 95% of all non-infectious diseases. A partial list of such health problems includes: colorectal cancer, obesity, breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, type II diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. A diet rich in fiber means consuming 25 to 35 grams of insoluble fiber, every day.

This is also the conclusion by Trowell and Burkitt, the best in their field, each regarded as the "Dr. Salk" of fiber. Their findings are supported by clinical necropsy data (examinations of bodies after death), 23 literature citations and other like-minded medical professionals across the global community.

With such a major health crisis looming in the United States, why isnít information about dietary fiber promoted on milk cartons, billboards, TV and radio? Why isnít it discussed starting in elementary school and then continued all the way through high school? Why isnít it printed on prescription drug containers and included on hospital and insurance bills? What a shocking eye opener!

Mannieís friend, Alex, who fought colon cancer for ten years, passed away in 2001. When presented with this information before his death, Alex exclaimed first with a look of concern, then sorrow, and then finally relief, "Why didnít anyone tell me this?Ē He then requested that a text be written so that ordinary people would truly understand the necessity of dietary fiber.

Mr. Enderlein's book, entitled An Apple a DayÖMom Was Only Half Right, was written and then published in 2003. We encourage you to visit the www.mom-was-half-right.com website to learn more about fiber and why consuming it will drastically improve your overall health.
