I'd like to see the rest of the study if someone finds it. I've seen these types of conclusions over and over again though. I wonder how many of those 852 dead diabetic nurses were grain free? Or exactly how they adjusted for dietary and other lifestyle risk? They did establish that a lot of nurses eating grains have diabetes, that's for sure. And it appears whole grains are better than refined grains. There's a shock.
Why is the American Heart Association in bed with Big Grain?
I'm still new to looking at this stuff, so correct me if I'm overreacting.
If you replace refined grains with whole grans and add assloads of fiber in, carbs are less destructive to type two diabetics, obviously there would be some improvement. I would like to see meat, fats, and vegetables pit against whole grains
Epidemiology seems like such an inexact science it hardly deserves the label 'science' imho. Just too many uncontrolled variables.
In studies like this, I always wonder what the 'healthier' choices are displacing. If you're eating more grains - maybe a salad roll or banana bread or something - you're eating less oil-and-sugar-laden snack foods. People who are trying to make the right choices and eating wholegrains might also tend to choose more whole foods over processed.
