The study “Perspective: Refined Grains and Health: Genuine Risk, or Guilt by Association?” – published in Advances in Nutrition – claims that refined grain intake should not be linked to chronic diseases. According to this document, current dietary recommendations by the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee endorsing the reduction of refined grain consumption are misguided because it takes into account dietary patterns, not separate food groups. But this study did. Products examined separately included bread, cereals and pasta. It was found out that refined grain intake is not associated was with cardiovascular disease or obesity.
