They don’t just taste good but whole grains lower diabetes risk according to research with over 50,000 adults. Interestingly, the subjects were ages 50 to 65 which holds promise for correcting decades of bad lifestyle decisions.

Not sure if you should add that loaf of rye bread or those rolled oats to your grocery cart? If you’re concerned about your blood sugar, the answer is “Yes!”

For years, doctors have known that whole grains are part of a heart-healthy diet. But according to a recent study, eating more whole grains can also help prevent type 2 diabetes.

The study looked at 55,465 participants between the ages of 50 to 65. Researchers found that the highest whole grain intake among men was associated with a 34 percent decreased risk of type 2 diabetes. Women who ate the most whole grains saw a 22 percent decreased risk.
