Association between dietary whole grain intake and risk of mortality: two large prospective studies in US men and women.

Generous consumption of whole grains may cut down all-cause mortality risk significantly in US men and women.

This study evaluated whole grain intake in relation to mortality risk in US men and women. Researchers tracked the whole grain consumption rates of 118,085 subjects recruited from the Nurse’s Health Study and the Health Professional’s Follow-up Study and monitored their mortality records. They observed that subjects on diets rich in whole grains had lower odds of dying from cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other causes. The findings of this study indicate that increased consumption of whole grains may help reduce total mortality risk.
