Oatmeal Still Proves to be Beneficial

Ten years ago, the FDA allowed oatmeal makers to label it heart-healthy. Now, a decade later, oatmeal's health claims are still standing strong. 

Experts at the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine reviewed oatmeal's health claims, and found that it still lowers total cholesterol levels, and reduces LDL, the "bad" cholesterol, without adverse effects on HDL, or "good" cholesterol.  Studies also show that oatmeal may reduce the risk for high blood pressure, weight gain, and type-two diabetes. 

So keep these oats as a part of your heart healthy diet.
