Bran Can-Do!

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

A large, long-term study of women with type 2 diabetes has found a significantly lower risk for death in those who consume a diet abundant in bran. Subjects who ate the most bran (the fiber-rich outer layer of whole grains) had a 35 percent lower risk for death from cardiovascular diseases and a 28 percent lower risk for death from all causes, compared to subjects who ate little bran. Researchers are conducting a similar study focusing on men with type 2 diabetes, which they predict will show the same protective effect from bran.
