Want to live a healthy life and extend your life? It’s very simple, just eat more whole wheat food. According to the British “Daily Mail” report, a recent study published by the Harvard School of Public Health showed that eating whole-grain foods can reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and prolong life.
The study showed that people who consumed an average of 34 grams of whole-grain food per day had a 17% lower premature death rate than those who consumed only 3.98 grams of whole-grain food per day. The results are still valid given the consideration of other health-related factors such as obesity and exercise. In addition, large intakes of whole-grain foods can reduce the chances of death from respiratory diseases and diabetes by 11% and 48%, respectively. Large intakes of cereal fiber can reduce the chances of dying from cancer and diabetes by 15% and 34%, respectively.
It is understood that the study covers 500,000 members of the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Research Organization, who are over 50 years old, from California, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, and Georgia. The metropolitan area of the state and Detroit.
In 1993, volunteers filled out a questionnaire surveyed about the health and diet status issued by the research institute. The survey included information on the frequency, type and amount of food intake. In the initial questionnaire, volunteers with cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes were excluded, and 367,442 volunteers continued to participate in the survey, with an average study period of 14 years.
The researchers said that because the study was an observational study, they could not fully confirm that whole-grain foods and cereal fiber reduced the risk of illness. However, they believe that the cereal fiber components contained in those foods have protective effects. In any case, eating whole-grain food and grain fiber sounds like a lot.
