The team’s findings were published in the latest issue of JAMA Internal Medicine. From more than 118,000 nurses and health professionals who filled out dietary questionnaires every two to four years between 1986 and 2010 the data that was collected said that of the 27,000 deaths of study participants, one-third fewer people died among the group that ate the most whole grains per day. Even after accounting for other factors such as obesity and exercise, researchers say data showed whole grains decreased a person’s overall chance of death by 9 percent. Cardiovascular-related deaths went down 15 percent.
So you want to know if you should eat whole grains or stay away from them. I myself have been following the paleo diet for a month now. I do feel better, have more energy and have lost a good amount of body fat. To be honest, if your body reacts poorly to grains, try to eliminate them from your diet. If this makes you feel better then do not eat them. If you are staying away from grains, make sure you get your nutrients elsewhere. If you are currently eating grains and notice no negative consequences then there is no reason to stop eating them. Some people may say that you may not be experiencing any consequences now but you will later which is true, you may. You only live once, so if you love your pasta and grains now and then I do not see a problem with that. Everyone’s body is different. Everyone’s body reacts differently to whole gains. You know your body better then anyone else so the choice is yours.
