A study found that eating more whole grains can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Data from three case-control studies involving 14,427 patients with CHD and 400,492 participants found that people who ate more whole grains were “significantly associated with reduced risk of coronary heart disease.”
What are whole grains? Here’s a partial list from the whole grains council.
Corn, including whole cornmeal and popcorn
Oats, including oatmeal
Rice, both brown rice and colored rice
Sorghum (also called milo)
Wheat, including varieties such as spelt, emmer, farro, einkorn, Kamut®, durum and forms such as bulgur, cracked wheat and wheatberries
So convincing, I just ate some oatmeal.
