How can oatmeal prevent cancer?

How can oatmeal prevent cancer?

Don't be so sure: Internet junk sites are full of claims about "superfoods" with supposed near-magical powers. It should be obvious that these are entertainment and salesmanship. Oatmeal has been represented as blocking absorption of cholesterol to help control atherosclerosis, and as fiber for preventing colon cancer. Pretty much everything has "antioxidants" if you look hard enough. Eat it if you like it.

Does oatmeal contain gluten?

Does oatmeal contain gluten?

Maybe not: Oats and oatmeal are listed as a gluten-containing grain. More recent reports say that oats don't have the gluten proteins but have small amounts of another protein that may cause reactions in some celiac disease patients. Sometimes the same equipment that processes oats also processes wheat, so there can be traces of gluten from the wheat getting into the oats. So, "pure" oats probably are ok.

Is oatmeal as healthy if I add honey?

YES: Oatmeal is a healthy whole-grain food it's fine to have a little sweetener to make it taste better. Some people think honey is more healthy than sugar or brown sugar because it's a sweetener that's been part of humans' diet for > 30, 000 years. Contrast this with refined sugar being around for < 5000 years. Not sure there's science to support honey v sugar, but whole grain oatmeal is great!
