Wholly Good Whole-Grain Breakfast

A new US study says eating whole-grain breakfast cereal reduces the risk of heart failure. “The significant health benefits of whole-grain cereal are not just for kids but also for adults. A whole-grain, high-fiber breakfast may lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol and prevent heart attacks,” said the study’s main author Dr. Luc Djousse of the Harvard Medical School in Boston .

Breakfast cereals were considered whole-grain if it contained “at least 25 percent oat or bran content, according to the study. In the study conducted from 1982 to 2006, nearly 10,500 doctors agreed that people who ate whole-grain breakfast cereal seven or more times a week lessened heart ailments by 28 percent since whole grains have a higher fiber content and are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
