So according to a report in the DT - "People who ate around 34 grams of whole grains per 1000 kcal per day lowered their risk of premature death by 17 per cent". Now my dad has eaten 2 Weetabix every evening for years and years - it is his 91st birthday this year and he is as fit as a flea so this comes as no surprise. What is a problem is, what do those of us who cannot eat gluten do??? With my Hashi's I don't eat anything with gluten in and oats (even gluten free) make me ill?? I searched to find if Quinoa contains gluten (this was the 'grain' the DT reported on) and apparently it is similar enough to be a problem for those with an immune system problem - welcome to my World!! Back to the drawing board - any ideas??
