Health Benefits Of Whole Grain Diet Outlined In Australian Report

April 1, 2010: 08:07 AM EST
A new report from Australian researchers lays out the abundant scientific evidence that whole grains and legumes play a major role in shielding the human body from cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers and obesity. Australia does not currently make official recommendations for the consumption of whole grains, though the government has urged that Australians eat a minimum of four servings of grain-based foods a day. The report says research has found that consuming two to four servings of whole grain foods each day could cut the risk of heart disease by 40 percent. In addition, a whole grains-based diet may help reduce blood pressure, lower body mass index and the risk of obesity, and may play a role in preventing periodontal disease and asthma.
