Scientists Figure Out Why Eating Bread Daily Contributes To Cardiovascular Health

November 28, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A study by Spanish scientists finds that people who eat either white or whole wheat bread every day have a healthier lipid profile – lower levels of LDL cholesterol and higher levels of HDL cholesterol -- than people who eat it sporadically or not at all and thus have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, regular bread consumption is associated with a lower insulin concentration. The researchers identified the metabolic factors, including a metabolite involved in lipid digestion, that rise when people eat bread, especially whole wheat bread, every day.
