Dave Kritchevsky, a song on Fiber

My friend David Kritchevsky died this year. He had so many talents including being a superb scientist, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of nutrition and as a speaker and teacher composer of songs on nutrition .
This is an example.

Tune: Mother
F is for the increased weight of feces
I is for intestinal milieu
B is for the gut bacterial action
E is how the enzymes work for you
R is for some useful explanation
of how these factors work for you and me.
Put them all together they spell “FIBER” Which leads to better health as all can see.
Tune: Swanee
How we need you, how we feed you
Bulky old fiber.
Cut transit time with ease And you can cure all Heart diseases and diabetes
Fiber – binding cholanoic acids Sticky old fiber
You’ll live to be a hundred and six If you stay on your fiber kicks.
