Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease

November 13, 2013

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. You can begin to protect yourself and reduce your risk of heart disease by starting your day off right -- eat whole grain cereal for breakfast. A study of nearly 7 thousand men found those who ate a bowl of whole grain cereal each day reduced their risk of heart failure by 28 percent. Experts believe the cereal may help lower blood pressure which may reduce your risk of heart disease. Read the labels on your cereal to make sure you're getting whole grain. Look for those with at least 25 percent whole grain or bran. The more fiber the better, so find cereals with at least 4 grams of fiber per serving!
