Can a high fiber diet protect against appendicitis?

In brief: Not absolutely

Appendicitis happens when the inside becomes blocked.
The specific cause of that blockage is not well understood. A diet high in fiber will make blockages from hard stool LESS likely, but can't get rid of the possibility.
