my n~1 of eating "healthy whole grains" was that i was "just fine". til i stopped eating them and realized that i'd been sick for decades. in almost 4 years being grain-free i haven't had a cold, cough, sniffle or sore throat.
i don't care how it may or may not affect populations at large.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
