Study Confirms Effectiveness of Whole-Grain Foods


According to a new health study, switching to whole-grain foods would help keep ones weight in check as much as a brisk 30-minute daily walk. According to the report's lead authors, whole grains appear to both lower the number of calories a person's body absorbs during digestion and speed metabolism. The report adds that while other studies have found that people who eat whole grains are slimmer and have lower body fat than those who don't, it has been hard to separate the effects of whole grains from regular exercise and a healthier diet overall.

  • Burned, Charred, And Toasted foods Linked To Cancer

    According to Business Insider, "The chemical acrylamide is found in fried, baked, and roasted foods like coffee and french fries. Because acrylamide was discovered in food somewhat recently, we don't have any concrete answers about whether it causes cancer, but scientists are uncovering evidence of a potential link." David Spiegelhalter, a University of Cambridge professor who studies public risk, stated, "Adults with the highest consumption of acrylamide could consume 160 times as much and still only be at a level that toxicologists think unlikely to cause increased tumors in mice..."
