Does High Inulin Diet Mean Less Medication?

Updated on June 2, 2016

It's starting to become more evident that when child grows up, certain types of bacteria he or she digests in early childhood can better protect them against allergies and disease. Could this now show a case that digesting inulin, a type of fibre in certain vegetables and now available as a supplement which promotes bifidobacterium, a gut bacteria linked to preventing allergies and asthma as shown in this study:

I've since found other scientific studies that support my beliefs that we need to increase the intake of fibre, but how much of the 37 grams of recommended fibre/day needs to be from vegetables or supplements containing inlulin? We hopefully should soon know as we are finding in an example of previous studies below:
