Whole Grain Cereal May Reduce Heart Failure Risk


New research shows that eating whole grain breakfast cereal may reduce your risk of heart failure. The study analyzed 10,500 doctors participating in the Physicians' Health Study. The participants who ate whole grain cereal seven or more times per week were 28 percent less likely to develop heart failure than those who never ate whole grain cereal. Those who ate the cereal 2 to 6 times per week had a 22 percent decrease in heart failure. The study lasted from 1982 to 2006.

Cereals that had at least 25 percent oat or bran content were considered whole grain.
