September is Whole Grains Month!

Sponsored by the Whole Grains Council, this event calls attention to one of the most important elements of a healthy diet. Whole grains contain all the essential parts of the grain—the bran, the endosperm and the germ—which preserves their natural nutrients.

Though we often hear that highly processed flour is bad for us, whole grains are a healthy choice. Switching to whole grains can lower our risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, dental problems and a host of other conditions that affect people of every age—especially older adults.
