How to protect ourselves from hemorrhoids?

Vegetables and fruits contain fiber, particularly beneficial ones are following: orange, banana, avocado, pumpkin, carrot, sweet potato, pea, apple, bean, almond, broccoli, pear, pomegranate, dewberry, green vegetable, lentil, raspberry, kiwi, cherry, fig. Grains are also rich in fiber. Wheat bran is particularly beneficial. Moreover, Seafood is rich in fiber as well.
