Cereal Isn't Just for Breakfast Anymore

Cereal isn't just for breakfast anymore. The more you eat, the better your odds for good health. At least that's true for men, based on a study of 21-thousand men.

Researchers followed them for nearly 20 years and found the more whole grain cereal they ate, the lower their risk of heart failure.

In fact, men who ate cereal seven or more times a week had a 29-percent reduced risk of heart disease.

The theory is that eating whole grains may lower some heart failure risk factors like high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
