    Eat more bread

    Post by graham64 on Fri Sep 01 2017, 22:41

    Americans should actually be eating MORE bread: New study slams the 'war on carbs' - warning we need twice as much whole wheat in our diet


    • Grain-rich food makes up less than 15 percent of an American's total diet
    • The lack of grainy foods is causing a decrease in critical nutrients like fiber, calcium and iron
    • The research team noted that things like bread are less caloric and more important for a healthy diet than people are lead to believe


    Contrary to popular belief Americans don't have enough bread in their diet, a new study has found.
    The study, which was conducted by the "Grain Foods Foundation", shows that consumption of grain-rich foods such as bread, rolls, tortillas and ready-to-eat cereals is less than 15 percent of an individual's total diet.

    And don't forget the biscuits

    https://twitter.com/DiabetesUK/status/895623397585059840

    Just add a PCSK9 inhibitor

    http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14779072.2017.1348231

    you don't really need to read beyond the COI statement

    "TA Turner’s institution has received research support from Amgen and Sanofi for clinical trials and central laboratory analysis. EA Stein has received consulting fees from Amgen, Regeneron, Sanofi, Genentech, Roche, The Medicines Co, ISIS, Catabasis, AstraZeneca, CymaBay, CVS/Caremark and BMS related to PCSK9 inhibitors and other lipid lowering drugs. The authors have no other relevant affiliations or financial involvement with any organization or entity with a financial interest in or financial conflict with the subject matter or materials discussed in the manuscript apart from those disclosed."

    Now you can also add canakinumab

    The BDA whilst having downer on superfoods promote whole grains as the answer to all life's ills by citing evidence based science as proof

    Whole grain cereals for cardiovascular disease


    Authors' conclusions: 

    There is insufficient evidence from RCTs of an effect of whole grain diets on cardiovascular outcomes or on major CVD risk factors such as blood lipids and blood pressure. Trials were at unclear or high risk of bias with small sample sizes and relatively short-term interventions, and the overall quality of the evidence was low. There is a need for well-designed, adequately powered RCTs with longer durations assessing cardiovascular events as well as cardiovascular risk factors.

    Hahahahaha watch for The Angry Chef to demolish this one, mainly by shouting loudly through a megaphone and writing fuck a lot, his usual technique.

    Cochrane Collaboration are usually a reliable source of information, though sometimes limited by their sources.

    For example where are any studies on diets with "whole grains" versus diets with NO grains? Not that many . . .
