  • ​Researchers took the results of 25 studies of the link between whole grains and colorectal cancer and analyzed them together. They estimated that having 3 or more servings of whole grains every day may lower the risk of colorectal cancer by up to 20%. All fibre was helpful in lowering colorectal cancer risk, but fibre from whole grains seems to have more of a benefit that fibre from other foods.
  • Oats contain a special type of fibre called beta-glucan, which helps lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of heart disease. Beta-glucan can also help you control your blood sugar and insulin levels and your weight, which may help prevent some cancers.
