Flashback Friday: Can Oatmeal Reverse Heart Disease?

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the NutritionFacts.org YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

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 other oat videos: Oatmeal Lotion for Chemotherapy-Induced Rash (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/Oatmeal-Lotion-for-Chemotherapy-Induced-Rash), Can Oatmeal Help Fatty Liver Disease? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/can-oatmeal-help-fatty-liver-disease/), Which Is a Better Breakfast: Cereal or Oatmeal? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/which-is-a-better-breakfast-cereal-or-oatmeal/)

Trowell’s work had a big influence on Dr. Denis Burkitt. See Dr. Burkitt’s F-Word Diet (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/dr-burkitts-f-word-diet/).

This reminds me of other interventions like hibiscus tea for high blood pressure (Hibiscus Tea vs. Plant-Based Diets for Hypertension: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/hibiscus-tea-vs-plant-based-diets-for-hypertension/) or amla for diabetes (Amla Versus Diabetes: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-diabetes/). Better to reverse the disease completely.
