Bread is Good For You! Whole Grains Reduce Diabetes Risk


NEW YORK-New research suggests eating whole grain foods may help overweight adults avoid developing Type 2 diabetes.

After studying a group of overweight adults placed in whole grain diets, researchers noticed the group had a significant drop in insulin levels. Their insulin sensitivity - a benchmark for how the body is responding to insulin and glucose - also improved.

The study, recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded eating foods specifically marked "whole grain" can help improve one's health. These foods include brown rice, oats, corn and barely.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends Americans consume six to 11 servings of carbohydrates, including whole grains, daily.
