A recently published study of more than 100,000 men and women, led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, revealed that limiting whole grains as part of a reduced-gluten diet could actually increase heart attack risk in people without celiac disease. The 26-year study¬† suggests that restricting dietary gluten may result in a low intake of whole grains, which are associated with lower cardiovascular risk. As such, the researchers say the promotion of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be encouraged. Visit Columbia University Medical Center’s website to read more.
