Eating white bread linked to early death
Ditch the white bread! Eating more than seven portions of refined grains a day can increase your risk of early DEATH by 27%
- Refined carbs, including white bread and pasta have had fibre parts removed
- Scientists looked at the diets of 137,130 people around the world
- Those who consumed seven portions a day were found to be at a 33 per cent higher risk for heart disease, and a 47 per cent higher risk for stroke
From a delicious piece of white toast to a bowl of pasta, many of us enjoy consuming refined grains.
But a new study has warned that eating too many of them can have serious consequences, including an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and even early death.
Refined carbohydrates, including croissants, white bread and pasta, have had the high fibre parts removed, meaning they get broken down faster and lead to rapid spikes in blood sugar levels when consumed.
Based on the findings, the researchers are urging people to consider replacing their favourite refined grains with wholegrain options, such as brown rice and barley.
