The current generation of people is more conscious of eating healthy and living life to the fullest. Records show that more people are suffering from illnesses that have no chance of recovery. If you can prevent this and save your life, would you do it?

A new study proves that cereal and whole grains can lower the risk of liver cancer. It provides plenty of health benefits to keep corresponding factors at bay.

How They Conducted The Study

The team used two large data from the US that began in 1976. Women and men are grouped differently totaling to 125,000 people. The participants are required to fill up a questionnaire to know their dietary habits. They have to do it every four years in 32 years.

The Findings

They found that out of all the participant, 141 were diagnosed with liver cancer. In their findings, they correlated the regular intake of whole grains with a lowered risk of hepatocellular carcinoma.

In a deeper understanding of their research, they discovered that the parts of whole grain play a huge part in the lowered risk of the disease. Whole grain is comprised of three parts: the bran, the endosperm, and the germ.

Processed grains, used in white bread, white rice, and white flour, lack the presence of the bran and germ.

The endosperm is made of starchy carbohydrates and is rich in vitamins and proteins. But the other two parts comprise a healthier component made of minerals, vitamins, phytochemicals, and good fats. To further analyze the difference, eating more bran shows a lower risk of the cancer type than lesser bran. But there was no significant correlation to eating more germ.

Eating higher amounts of cereal fiber shows greater prevention for the illness. Surprisingly, they didn’t find any significant outcome in eating more fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber.
