A preliminary report of a study presented at an American Heart Association’s meeting suggested that eating a whole grain cereal at least twice a week resulted in an 11% reduction in risk for hypertension in men. Eating cereal everyday had a 19% reduction. These results came from a review of the data from the long-running Physicians Health study that had over 13000 participants. As you know, having hypertension increases a person’s risk for heart attack, stroke, and kidney disease. The researchers could only give the results for men since there was not enough data for women, although previous studies have shown that whole grains also benefit a woman’s heart health. A key point to remember is that the cereals were whole grains and not refined grains. Make sure you keep that in mind when choosing your next breakfast cereal. Dr. Mark Savant is a General Internist.
