DESCRIPTION: Less than 3% of Americans meet the daily recommended fiber intake despite research suggesting high-fiber foods such as whole grains can affect the progression of coronary heart disease.
Oatmeal offers a lot more than fiber, though. See my last two oat videos Oatmeal Lotion for Chemotherapy-Induced Rash ( ) and Can Oatmeal Help Fatty Liver Disease? ( )
Trowell’s work had a big influence on Dr. Denis Burkitt. See Dr. Burkitt’s F-Word Diet ( ).
This reminds me of other interventions like hibiscus tea for high blood pressure (Hibiscus Tea vs. Plant-Based Diets for Hypertension ) or amla for diabetes (Amla Versus Diabetes ). Better to reverse the disease completely.
