Carbohydrates, dietary fiber, and incident type 2 diabetes in older women.
TLDR
A protective role for grains (particularly whole grains), cereal fiber, and dietary magnesium in the development of diabetes in older women is supported, after adjustment for potential nondietary confounding variables. Expand

  • 1 June 2004
TLDR
Although it is difficult to separate the protective properties of whole grains from dietary fibre and other components, the disease protection seen from whole grains in prospective epidemiological studies far exceeds the protection from isolated nutrients and phytochemicals in whole grains. Expand
Health benefits of fruits and vegetables.
TLDR
The existing dietary guidance on intake of fruits and vegetables is described, and attempts to characterizeruits and vegetables into groups based on similar chemical structures and functions are reviewed. Expand

  • Medicine, Biology
  • Proceedings of the Nutrition Society
  • 1 February 2003
TLDR
Improvements in biomarkers with whole-grain consumption are shown, such as weight loss, blood lipid improvement and antioxidant protection, which may provide immune protection beyond the gut. Expand
Urinary Equol Excretion with a Soy Challenge: Influence of Habitual Diet
TLDR
Dietary fiber or other components of a high-fiber diet may promote the growth and/or the activity of bacterial populations responsible for equol production in the colon, among women. Expand

The average fiber intake of adults in the United States is less than half recommended levels and is lower still among those who follow currently popular low-carbohydrate diets, such as Atkins and South Beach. Expand
Effect of whole grains on insulin sensitivity in overweight hyperinsulinemic adults.
TLDR
Insulin sensitivity may be an important mechanism whereby whole-grain foods reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease and is tested in overweight and obese adults. Expand
Dietary fibre and satiety
Summary  Dietary fibres have different physiological effects and provide a variety of health benefits, including satiety. They are thought to impact on satiation (the satisfaction of appetite duringExpand
Whole-grain intake and cancer: an expanded review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The case-control evidence is supportive of the hypothesis that whole-grain intake protects against various cancers and dose-response associations were stronger in studies using food-frequency questionnaires than in more quantitative questionnaires. Expand
