Wholegrain cereals for coronary heart disease.

High intake of whole grains, especially oats, may offer adequate protection against coronary heart disease.

This study investigated the relationship between the consumption of whole grain cereals, especially oats, and the risk of coronary heart disease. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on dietary and clinical data extracted from 10 published studies. They discovered that generous intake of whole grain cereals, particularly oats, decreased total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease. The findings of this meta-analysis reveal that coronary heart disease is less likely to occur in individuals who regularly consumed large servings of cereal grains, especially unrefined whole grain oatmeals.
