A new study finds that eating a gluten-free diet without a need to do so will not boost your heart health. Instead, it may even harm it.
For this study, a team of scientists analyzed data from nearly 65,000 women and more than 45,000 men without a history of heart disease at the beginning of the study. The participants completed a detailed food questionnaire in 1986 and updated it every 4 years until 2010. The researchers looked at the amount of gluten, consumed by a different group of people.
Having analyzed the received results of cases with heart disease, the researchers concluded that the results of both highest-intake gluten group and lowest-intake gluten group were pretty similar.
Scientists agree that there is no need for people who do not have gluten sensitivity or celiac disease to refuse from gluten.
