Bread benefits???

I hope it's true, I just got in a disagreement with someone on another forum regarding Subway.
Bread is good... enjoy!

It is my opinion it depends

It is my opinion it depends highly on the type of bread. Some bread is healthy while other types are worthless nutritionally. It would be interesting to compare the study to a breadless diet high in other whole grains and see if the results were similar.

There are zero benefits to

There are zero benefits to eating bread, unless there is no sources of other food available. And folks with the lowest LDL have the highest mortality rates, at least in older folks. LDL is not a bad thing at any levels, just a marker for how much your body thinks you need or don't need to make more adrenal steroids to keep you alive and well. They're all made from LDL choleterol.

The starch and sugar folks are playing defense, since even their buying off the AHA and ADA hasn't prevented folks from realizing that it only took a single generation raised on the grain based food pyramid to turn "adult onset diabetes" into a pediatric disorder.

The definition of insanity is to keep pushing what doesn't work when the only two essential macronutrients on which our organs and arteries do best are protein and fat.

My mother died at 86 with high LDL and arteries as clean as a whistle. Ditto the father of someone I know who's LDL was 395 lifelong, but large and bouyant and harmless. He died of non CVD causes.

Is happiness a benefit?

Once a grain is ground, it's

Once a grain is ground, it's no longer a whole grain. Eating whole kernels, which go unmetabolized can be healthful because you *don't* digest the bread. For the ground grain, not eating it is required to get that benefit.

I was thinking about that the other day with regard to what seems like a spike in cancer in the past few decades. Probably totally inventing a conspiracy in my head, but ever since the government put out the "9 to 11 servings of grain per day" on the pyramid, it seems like we're getting more and more health problems. When you think what humans are made to eat, it's fruits, nuts, some veggies, anything found during foraging. I wouldn't even say meat since we only eat that with the advent of tools and fire to cook it. My nails are long and hard, but I'm not tackling any gazelles with them and I'm sure as hell not ripping it apart with my puny incisors and flat grinding molars. Agriculture was only "discovered," what, 10-12000 years ago? We're not made for it.

But man, is it goooood. Sad

As long as I find animals to eat whilst foraging, I'm good to go. Smiling
Have you read Gary Taube's review of metabolic science, the poorly named "Good Calories, Bad Calories?" He writes about the well documented connection between hyperinsulinemia and increased cancer risk. Those I've found particularly frequently in medical literature are breast, ovarian, colon and prostate.

I really like the informative

I really like the informative health article, which tells more about the importance of eating bread. It was new information to me that bread can improve cardiovascular health. I think such article should be shared and discussed more often so that the people become aware of such healthy practices. http://www.windows8-problems.com
