Review Of Research Finds Strong Links Between Whole Grains And Health

February 5, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A review by scientists in New South Wales of previous research has uncovered an association between whole grains and a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. The scientists analyzed data from 11 major clinical trials completed in the last few years. The researchers used the data to create guidelines focusing on the ideal amount of whole grains that should be consumed, the nature of whole grains, and the potential mechanisms for the effect of whole grains on health. They suggested, for example, that the daily intake of whole grains should be 40 grams or more, approximately a bowl of whole grain breakfast cereal. Sounds easy enough, but unfortunately, 80 percent of the population falls short of this goal.
