Men who consume whole grains as part of their daily diets may decrease their risk of type 2 diabetes. The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (vol.76, No. 3: 535-540), assessed 1,197 men with type 2 diabetes. Those who consumed the highest amount of whole grains (3.2 servings per day) reduced their risk of the disease by 30 percent to 10 percent compared to men who ate less than one serving per day. Researchers attributed the reduced risk of diabetes primarily to intake of cereals rather than other forms of whole grains.
