The fibrous part of plants serves many purposes for the plants and for humans. For instance, the bulk of an orange's vitamin C content is actually in the fibrous white lining of the peel, so eat that for your 'C' rather than drinking orange juice. Eating the 'whole' edible part of the plant ensures that you get the full nutrient content as well as any beneficial medicinal content. Also of great importance is the fact that the plant fiber helps keep your intestines and bowel scrubbed clean of fecal matter and other toxic build-up, which could otherwise poison your body, and even cause cancer.
