Researchers at Tufts University in Boston analyzed the data of over 3,100 participants to examine how the consumption of whole grain cereals such as oatmeal, brown rice and the like and refined cereals found in pasta and white bread, among other things, related to five known risk factors for heart disease affects: waist circumference, blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol.
