Whole Grain Spinning

It’s attention-grabbing how information studies of dietary research can spin the outcomes, most likely with out the authors realizing that is what they’re doing.

Take a current report titled “Several reasons why whole grains are healthy.” Now, you see a headline like that and also you’re apt to assume “Whole grains good” and also you would possibly eat extra of them, rising your carbohydrate consumption.

Yet the article would possibly simply as effectively have effectively been titled “Several reasons why processed grains are not healthy.” In that case you’ll be apt to assume, “Processed grains bad” and eat much less of them. Instead,  you would possibly eat extra complete grains, otherwise you would possibly eat extra fish or broccoli or beef or no matter. And you probably have diabetes, the latter can be extra useful to your blood glucose ranges.

The examine I cited took 50 adults liable to heart problems or diabetes and had them substitute complete grains for the processed grains they often ate. They discovered that doing so diminished the quantity of inflammatory markers in these adults.

I’ve no drawback with the examine or the outcomes. Just with the best way it is spun.
