WHOLE GRAINS COULD EXTEND YOUR LIFE Blogger: Being Sane Takes Too Much Work
Those that eat at least 3 servings of whole grains daily have a lower risk of death from disease than those who eat less than 3 servings, according to these large studies. One study was published in the American Heart Association's Journal Circulation. It reported that those who ate 3 servings of whole grains daily saw a 14% decrease in cancer deaths and a 25% decrease in cardiovascular deaths. The second study was done by European and United States researchers and was published in the British Medical Journal. The study found that increasing your intake of whole grains could reduce the risk of infectious diseases, diabetes, respiratory diseases, cancer, and heart disease. So having oatmeal for breakfast, popcorn for a snack and brown rice or quinoa at dinner may help you live longer.
