    "In more good news for those who fill up on bran cereal and quinoa, a new study suggests that older people who eat a lot of whole grains may live longer than those who hardly ever eat them.

    Even the obese and sedentary appear to gain a benefit, the researchers added.


    People should "eat more whole grains and reduce intake of refined carbohydrates," said study co-author Dr. Lu Qi, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston."


    Read the article above to see what other factors the study found may also influence life span and how many whole grains you should be eating.



    What whole grains (or dish with whole grains) is your favorite?
