Can Oatmeal Reverse Heart Disease?

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 (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Oatmeal-Lotion-for-Chemotherapy-Induced-Rash) and Can Oatmeal Help Fatty Liver Disease? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/can-oatmeal-help-fatty-liver-disease/)
Trowell’s work had a big influence on Dr. Denis Burkitt. See Dr. Burkitt’s F-Word Diet (http://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 http://nutritionfacts.org/video/hibiscus-tea-vs-plant-based-diets-for-hypertension/) or amla for diabetes (Amla Versus Diabetes http://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-diabetes/). Better to reverse the disease completely.
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/can-oatmeal-reverse-heart-disease and he’ll try to answer it!
