Heart Disease Prevention uses collage to capture the importance of fibre in the diet to prevent heart disease.


Heart disease is the commonest cause of death and disability worldwide. Hamdi's research focuses on understanding the protective effects of fibre in heart disease. According to the evidence from her research, consuming dietary fibre may help prevent the onset of heart disease.

Dietary fibre enters the large intestine escaping digestion in the upper gastrointestinal system, where gut microorganisms break it down to create beneficial by-products. These by-products can elicit systemic effects, including on the heart. Both experimental and clinical studies support the relationship between increased fibre intake and a decrease in heart disease.



Using collage, Janet has aimed to capture the importance of fibre in the diet to prevent heart disease. Depicting a healthy heart supported by the colon, fibre intake allows the figure to travel easily.

The exaggerated size of the heart and fibre-rich foods represents the vital relationship between the two. Using nostalgic imagery reminds us how important this research will be for the prevention of heart disease in the future.

The use of bold colours was crucial in attracting the viewer's eye to draw them in for a closer look.
