An experiment conducted on the mice that consumed low-fat diets rich in soluble fibres were found to have better responses when scientists induced illness by introducing a substance ( lipopolysaccharide) that causes the body to mimic a bacterial infection. Two hours after lipopolysaccharide injection, the mice fed soluble fibre were only half as sick as the other group, and they recovered 50 per cent sooner. And the differences between the groups continued to be pronounced all the way out to 24 hours according to Christina Sherry, who worked on the study. This study of the University of Illinois demonstrates the benefits of soluble fibres. It reduces the inflammation associated with obesity-related diseases and strengthens the immune system. Soluble fibres are found to change the personality of immune cells
