Whole Wheat, Wholesome for Pregnant Women and Their Offspring

A new study has established the wholesomeness of whole wheat as a diet for pregnant women, capable of reducing breast cancer risk in the offspring.//

Dr Leena Hilakivi-Clarke of Georgetown University in Washington DC and her colleagues examined the benefits of dietary changes on pregnant rodents and studied its implictions on the babies’ health. These results could well mimic the occurrence in humans, the researchers opined. According to the researchers, the daughters of women who consumed a high fat diet during pregnancy suffered a high risk of breast cancer.

The link between dietary fiber and breast cancer, in humans, is yet to be conclusively confirmed. To understand the link better, the researchers fed pregnant rats, a diet containing 6 percent fiber from whole wheat flour, oat flour, defatted flax flour, or cellulose. The offspring of these rats were administered a breast cancer-inducing chemical. The study revealed that the offspring whose mothers had been fed the whole wheat diet were less prone to developing breast tumors, while those fed defatted flax flour experienced an enhanced cancer risk. Oat flour did not influence the risk in any way.
