Abstract: When blood cells stick to and cause inflammation of the artery wall, plaques build up. The accumulation called atherosclerosis can eventually block the blood vessel.The research findings revealed that oats are heart-friendly because of their high fibre content. Fiber washes cholesterol from the digestive system that would otherwise be released into the bloodstream. The scientists at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University, Boston, Massachusetts have discovered that oats contain a compound, avenanthramides, which keep blood cells from sticking to artery walls.  It significantly suppress adhesive molecules that glue blood cells to artery walls.
