24/7 Lecture: Whole grains’ association with coronary heart disease

Posted on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 by for 24/7 Lecture.

24 seconds: This study examined the association between whole grain intake and atherosclerotic coronary heart disease (CHD) outcomes by creating an evidence map that compared whole grain consumption by country and whole grain type. The strongest evidence supports the association between whole grains, whole grain breakfast cereals, and bran and the reduced risk of CHD. Further research needs to be conducted for oatmeal, whole wheat bread, and individual whole grains because of inconsistent outcomes.

7 words: Not all whole grains equal healthy hearts.
