I was delighted to speak yesterday at the sold-out Whole Grains Council conference in Boston. I was also delighted to find myself in the company of a veritable who's who of dietary sense and science. Missing from the audience were ideologues and iconoclasts. Present were those people whose careers are not about defending a particular diet, but looking at all of the evidence, interpreting it, and sharing it. People like the lead dietitian at Eating Well and WebMD. People like the lead health writer at The Atlantic. Good company, indeed.
Whole grains are, and always have been, a mainstay in my diet and the diets of those I love most in the world. Nobody pays me to say that; nobody pays us to eat them!
