To address current claims that discourage ingestion of carbohydrates (CHOs), wheat, and cereal grains, as well as to celebrate the versatility, nutritional and health benefits, and contribution of these foods to the world food supply, we felt compelled to defend their role in the diet and write a series of reviews. The eighth review in this series examines scientific research findings on the impact of whole and refined grains and the CHOs they contain on three common cancers: lung, prostate, and...

Grain-based foods are alleged in the popular media to cause various neurodegenerative conditions, such as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease. The scientific literature shows that diets containing the right balance of foods, including grain-based foods with an optimal mix of whole and enriched (or fortified) grains, are associated with lower risk for developing a number of neurological conditions. This article, the first of a two-part review, examines th...

The first recorded occurrence in Asia of wheat blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae, pathotype Triticum (synonym Pyricularia oryzae) occurred in Bangladesh in March 2016. Crop losses of up to 90% have been reported, with latesown wheat suffering particularly badly. The emergence of this disease has raised concern in neighboring countries where wheat represents a significant crop, most notably in India and Nepal. The existence of effective genetic resistance is in doubt, so for the moment the sole ...

Incidence of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease is increasing as the mean age of Western populations rises. This article, the second article of a two-part review, assesses the existing scientific literature addressing the role of minerals, phytochemicals, specific grain-based foods, and dietary patterns, with and without grains, to determine whether these foods and their constituents affect the onset or course of these common dementias, as has been alle...

Claims made in the popular press allege that grain-based foods, and the carbohydrates (CHOs) they contain, cause or worsen various neurological disorders, including headache, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and depression. This article reviews the scientific literature to assess the role of these foods in nutrition and their impact on headache, ADHD, and depression. The bulk of the scientific literature shows that nearly all grain-based products are listed as nonoffending foods ...

To accelerate genetic gains in breeding, physiological trait (PT) characterization of candidate parents can help make more strategic crosses, increasing the probability of accumulating favorable alleles compared to crossing relatively uncharacterized lines. In this study, crosses were designed to complement “source” with “sink” traits, where at least one parent was selected for favorable expression of biomass and/or radiation use efficiency—source—and the other for sink-related traits like harve...

Meeting the growing demand for food over the next 20–30 years will be challenging, mainly because the fastest population growth is occurring in already highly populated developing countries and because producing cereal crops (the main source of nutrients in these countries) requires that serious production constraints, due mainly to the effects of climate change, be overcome. Wheat supplies the most calories and proteins to the global population in the form of diverse wheat-based foods. Wheat-ba...

To address many current claims that disparage and discourage the ingestion of carbohydrates (CHOs), wheat, and cereal grains, as well as to celebrate the versatility, nutritional and health benefits, and contribution of these foods to the world food supply, we felt compelled to defend their role in the diet and write a series of reviews. This third review of CHOs, grains, and whole grains looks at their digestion and absorption, their impact on the microbiome, and how they influence gut function...
