Study: Each daily serving linked to 5 percent lower risk of early death.
A diet rich in whole grains is associated with a significantly lower risk of early death, especially from cardiovascular disease, according to research published in JAMA Internal Medicine.Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health examined the association between eating whole grains and the risk of death using data from two studies that included more than 118,000 health professionals (women and men) for more than 20 years. All the participants were free of cancer and cardiovascular disease when the studies began. Participants filled out surveys every two to four years about several lifestyle habits, including whole grain consumption.
