SAGE's American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine looks at the health benefit of oats

The first issue of Volume 2 (January/February 2008) explores the results of the Oats at 10 Years study, marking the 10th anniversary of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration claim that oats, as part of an overall heart healthy diet, could lower the risk of heart disease. The article, written by Mark B. Andon, PhD, and James W. Anderson, MD, looks at the history of the first food-specific health claim, theorizing that foods containing whole-oat sources of soluble fiber (oats, oat bran, and oat flour) could reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

This is an extremely important study, said the journals Editor, Dr. James M. Rippe, who is also a nationally renowned cardiologist, author, and authority on health, fitness and weight loss. It tracked the value of oat-based products and showed the correlation between consumption and a healthier lifestyle. It is an outstanding benchmark.

Launched one year ago, AJLM is a bimonthly journal for practitioners seeking to incorporate lifestyle practices and activities into clinical medicine, emphasizing the interaction between traditional therapies and lifestyle changes. In 2007, AJLM explored cardiovascular disease; stress/anxiety; pain/arthritis; diabetes/metabolic disease, and obesity, and will examine lifestyle interventions in children; metabolic syndrome; womens health; hypertension; mens health, and dyslipidemia in 2008.

Im extremely proud of this journal, added Ron Epstein, Director of Controlled Circulation Publications at SAGE. Our first-year response among practitioners has been phenomenal, and were off to an even better start this year, beginning with the Oats at 10 Years study.
