You’ve heard it time and time again:
“Whole grains are healthier than refined grains because they contain more fibre, more nutrients, and don’t spike your blood sugar like refined grains do!”
This statement, like so many other pieces of mainstream nutritional wisdom, is nonsense. There is nothing “healthy” about whole-grains; in fact, an impartial, side-by-side comparison based on actual scientific evidence clearly shows refined grains to be the superior choice.
You know, there are compelling reasons as to why even pre-industrial populations went to the trouble of milling their grains…
Fully aware of my very low tolerance for dietary hogwash, the folks over at 180 Degrees Health recently called my name, threw me a nice juicy piece of whole-grain propaganda, then stood back just to see what would happen. Rascals.
The result was my most extensive dissection to date of the untenable fairy tale that constitutes the whole-grain myth.
