Some anecdotal feedback... friend of my mum.. always had high cholesterol.. went to her doctor and he wanted her to go on meds, she didn't, a few months later she went to get tested again, and her cholesterol levels reduced significantly. Doc thought she had taken meds, but she claimed it was oats that did it. Whenever she was hungry she would eat a bowl, up to a few times a day.
I think it needs to be emphasised that a large/multiple dose/servings of oats are necessary, not just a sprinkle in your museli or a tablespoon in meatloaf or whatever, but A LOT to make this work if you are suffering from high cholesterol levels and the like.
Nice find YH, oats are my favourite carb
