Eating Bread And Pasta Is Good For Your Health, New Study Finds

Eating Bread And Pasta Is Good For Your Health, New Study Finds

Next time you load your plate up with a healthy dose of pasta and a few slices of garlic bread, do not feel guilty about the carb on carb ratio.

Because actually, eating the likes of bread, cereal and pasta is good for your health - according to a new study.

According to the research, eating protein from foods such as pasta and bread has been linked to a lower risk of dying.

Published in the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal, researchers analysed data on 416,104 men and woman over a period of 16 years.

On average, the participants got 15 per cent of their daily energy from protein sources - 40 per cent from plants and 60 per cent from animal products (including 19 per cent from dairy).

The study found eating plant protein was linked to lower risk of death and our fave beige foods - such as bread and pasta - were found to have a particularly strong link over animal products such as meat and eggs.

For example, ditching eggs in favour of plant proteins revealed a 24 per cent lower risk of death for men and 21 per cent for women.

Meanwhile, when it came to ditching meat, the risk dropped by 13 per cent in men and 15 per cent in women.

Their findings even correlated when researchers accounted for different lifestyle choices such as smoking, diabetes, fruit consumption, and whether the person regularly took vitamin supplements.

Researchers believe the findings could provide evidence that changing a person's diet could affect their health as well as their lifespan.

And it's certainly a reason to start incorporating more plant based products into your diet - as well as all the extra carbs of course.
