Whole Grain Cereals Rock!

Recently the wife and I have gotten on a real whole grain kick. We’ve been trying to eat more organic as well. The baby is fed mostly organic baby food. It might all be marketing, but it makes us feel better.

I’ve been doing the Heart Smart cereals lately. A little sweetener and some cinammon and I’m good to go. Now I find out that they are even better for the heart than originally thought.

A new study takes this one step further and has found that eating whole grain breakfast cereals (those with at least 25% oat or bran) can reduce the risk of heart failure. Presented at the American Heart Association’s 47th Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention, the study showed that eating 2-6 servings of whole grain breakfast cereals each week decreased their risk by 22%, while those eating 1 serving per week lowered theirs by 14%.

Great news.
