What's a reduced risk of death? Death is an absolute certainty! Fiber can't save you from death.

I am on an Atkins diet & I don't eat pasta, cereal. You can't make a generalized comment like this. People die from lung cancer & they never smoked a day in their lives.

You know the Atkins diet is one of the most unhealthy ones there is right? Especialy for women. There's so many things you are missing out of in your diet if you go on Atkins and you are at risk for a lot of diseases because of it.

So I'll have a 19% reduced risk of death compared to those who don't eat this cereal? So if we eat it we will have a 19% better chance of never facing death than the 81% of those who don't eat it. Cool. Feed it to Mikey he eats everything. :)

Cereal fiber refers to cereal grains: oats, millet, amaranth, etc. Not boxed cereal! The survey question should have been more specific. People will think they can go eat all the lucky charms they want now and be a lower risk of death. I wish people didn't skew things so much!

Well and the media is only showing cereal like lucky charms when talking about the study. I bet you half the people watching went out and bought junk cereal. Thinking it is now healthy for them.

what kind of cereal? I don't eat cold cereal or processed hot cereals. I eat a varied "diet" which contains many forms of fiber. If you read the labels on cereal many of them contain sugar or a form of it. I cook from scratch and know that what I am putting in my body is good for me.

a lot of these "studies" are pure BS. I believe people should just live life and do what they want, not what scientists tell them to do. Of course people should eat healthy, however i dont think adding more cereal in your diet will benefit in any way shape or form.

Exactly! I had to LOL at this because we ALL have a 100% risk of death. It's going to happen. It's inevitable. It's guaranteed. You can eat as much cereal as you want and you'll still die.

At least I got a good laugh out of this today! LOL

You mean, if a person walks in front of a speeding car while eating a bowl of cereal, it won't stop the car?? But I believed this study. It's on the internet. It has to be true.

But with all the preservatives in the overly-processed cereals, probably as much embalming materials being ingested as were used in preserving mummies. Cereal might not make a person immortal, but enough preservatives might make corpse more durable. :-P

So what they are saying is. Eat more processed , sugar loaded, GMO Bs..and you will live longer? Not buying it. Then to much fiber is a bad thing. Also theses cereals don't even have the right kind of fiber our bodies crave. You will end up having more problems then before. People are now going to over dose on the wrong fiber (which they already do), over dose on sugar and processed bs. Eat real food and you wont have to worry about all this.

Funded by manufacturers of highly processed cereal. Y'know, start with actual whole grains, ground to a slurry, mixed with sugars, colorings, flavorings (plus some synthetic vitamins to replace the natural ones destroyed in processing) then squirted through extruders to get those nifty shapes they pack in overpriced boxes on grocery shelves. All about profit, not health.

Fiber doesn't provide nutrients either, just keeps things moving along...

Which was all exposed to us 100 years ago by Alfred McCann in his books, such as "This Famishing World." You can read them free online/download e-book at Archive.org. Things never change, with government and manufacturers always preferring profit over people's health.
