More Whole Grains, Less Heart Disease

Posted on 02/26/2015

A new study out today links whole grain consumption and heart disease risk. The findings? More whole grains, less heart disease. 

According to The American Journal of Cardiology where the findings will be published in the March 1st issue, higher consumption of whole grains may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (or heart disease as its more commonly known). 

Researchers analyzed data from 15 studies and three case-control studies involving 14,427 patients with heart disease and 300,492 participants. 

They concluded through the analysis, the higher the whole grain intake the more the protection one has against heart disease.

Bottom line, if you want to prevent heart disease be sure to consume a diet rich in whole grains. 

And, if you think you should eliminate whole grains due to the gluten free craze (and not those who have Celiac Disease and must stay away from whole grains), think again.

Hi, I actually have a few questions/comments: 1. Have you heard of the book "Wheat Belly"? The author basically states that we should stay away from wheat as well as all whole grains. Confusing to say the least! I agree with the wheat concern because I have felt the difference but no whole grains like oats, etc? Do you have any comments regarding this idea? 2. Do you consider your Diabetic meal plan to be low glycemic? 3. Lastly, will you ever consider adding meal plan that deals with people who have nut allergies?? I've been on your plan before years ago but now I have developed a tree nut allergy which forces me to watch where all of the food that I eat is made in a nut free facility. I know I'm not the only one with this issue so I was wondering if you would consider making a line of food that people like me could consume? Thanks for your time! Christine 1.
