business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Chicago Tribune reports that a new analysis from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health of "12 published studies and health information from more than 786,000 participants" has concluded that "people who ate 70 grams of whole grains per day, compared with those who ate little or no whole grains, had lower risk of premature death ... Whole grains also lowered the risk for cancer and cardiovascular disease, the study found."

It is said that "this is the first analysis of this type linking whole grains to mortality risk."
