The Power of a Bowl of Oatmeal
A professor of food and human nutrition at Newcastle University says eating a bowl of oatmeal every day can have a positive effect on your health.
A bowl of oatmeal contains more fibre than a slice of whole wheat bread, is low in fat, contains virtually no sugar and also has a number of minerals like manganese, copper, iron and B vitamins.
Oats contain high amounts of soluble fibre, which gives you a satisfied, full feeling after eating. The beta glucans in oats form acids, which work on the DNA of cells in the colon and can have an anti-cancer effect.
