A study showed that higher whole-grain intake was associated with a reduced risk of hypertension in middle-aged and older women, which suggests a potential role for increasing whole-grain intake in the primary prevention of hypertension and its cardiovascular complications. The ten-year study of 28,926 women (45 or older, no known history of hypertension, cancer, or heart disease) in the U.S. conducted by Lu Wang, J Michael Gaziano, Simin Liu, JoAnn E. Manson, Julie E Buring, and Howard D. Sesso, was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 86, No. 2, pages 472-479, August 2007. Women who ate mroe than four servings per day of whole grains were 23 percent less likely to have hypertension than women who ate less than a half a serving a day.
A 2007 study showed that lowering insulin levels reduces acne. The researchers split 43 men ages 15 to 25 between two groups for 12-weeks, one group eating a high glycemic load (typical Western diet) and the other eating a lower glycemic diet emphasizing whole grains, fruits, and fish. The low glycemic-load diet led to a significant reduction in the number of acne vulgaris lesions. The experimental diet also reduced weight, reduced the free androgen index, and increased insulin-like growth factor binding protein when compared with a high glycemic-load diet. The study, conducted by Robyn N. Smith and Neil J. Mann of the School of Applied Sciences, RMIT University (Melbourne, Australia), Anna Braue of the Department of Dermatotly, Royal Melbourne Hospital (Australia), Henna Mäkeläinen of the Department of Dermatology, Royal Childrens Hospital (Australia), and George A. Varigos of the Department of Biochemistry and Food Chemistry, Turku University (Finland), was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Volume 57, Issue 2, August 2007, pages 247-256.
It may indeed be doubted whether butchers meat is anywhere a necessary of life. Grain and other vegetables, with the help of milk, cheese, and butter, or oil, where butter is not to be had, afford the most plentiful, the most wholesome, the most nourishing, and the most invigorating diet. Decency nowhere requires that any man should eat butchers meat., Adam Smith (British economist).
