Eat Whole Grains To Live Longer, Says New Definitive Harvard Study

File under the “kind of knew this already, but weren’t really paying that much attention” category: Eat whole grains to live longer.

For those of us who’ve turned 50 and want to make one change in our diet that will extend our lives: The time has come to eat whole grains to live longer. That’s the answer. That means staying away from white bread and other refined carbohydrates that raise our blood sugar and make us susceptible to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases.

If you want proof, look no further than a new long-term study done by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The study showed eating more whole grains is associated with up to 15 percent lower mortality for cardiovascular disease.

Even bran, which a component of whole grains foods, recorded a 20 percent lower cardiovascular disease mortality, says Qi Sun, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and senior author of the study.

“It’s a very critical age during midlife when people reach 50 for changing your diet for a healthy lifestyle,” Sun says. “With those chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease, the risks go up. It’s a very critical life window for intervention, and eating whole grains will reduce the risk for developing those diseases. It’s never too late for a healthy lifestyle and diet and for people to replace refined carbohydrates.”

Sun says existing dietary guidelines already promote whole grains to help prevent chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, but the link of evidence between whole grains and mortality had been limited.

Researchers looked at data from more than 74,000 women and 43,000 men who filled out questionnaires about their diet every two to four years between the mid-1980s to 2010, Sun says.

The researchers took that data and adjusted for age, body mass index, physical activity, smoking and overall diet, excluding whole grains. They then looked at a whole grain diet with mortality over 25 years to reach the results they did.

Not only did a whole grain diet lower cardiovascular disease mortality up to 15 percent, it lowered overall mortality by 9 percent, Sun says. For every serving of whole grains (28 grams per day), overall mortality dropped by 5 percent and cardiovascular disease mortality dropped by 9 percent, he says.

Replacing refined grains with whole grains cut cardiovascular disease mortality by 8 percent. What had the biggest impact was swapping out read meat with whole grains, Sun says. That lowered the cardiovascular mortality by 20 percent.

Sun says eating whole grains helps people from contracting colorectal cancer.

Whole grains are a source of fiber and have many beneficial nutrients such as magnesium and vitamins, Sun says.

What’s the reason for the benefits?

“I think in comparison with refined grains—white bread and sugars—whole grain foods are low in the glycemic index in that after you eat whole grains foods, your blood sugar levels wouldn’t increase dramatically and wouldn’t trigger the dramatic release of insulin levels,” Sun says. “For refined carbohydrates, your blood sugar levels typically increase dramatically and rapidly release insulin. The blood sugar levels also drop dramatically because of the insulin actions. That type of glycemic response is associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and developing cardiovascular disease.”

Sun says grocery stores provide plenty of options for people to eat more whole grains. There are whole grain breads, cakes, pasta and whole grain flour. Other foods with whole grains includes brown rice and popcorn, he says.

Five servings a day is recommended, and Sun says people should eat as many as possible.

  14. Valuable info. Lucky me I found your site by accident, and I’m shocked why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  15. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he just bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!

  16. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
