98 percent of the wheat eaten in the U.S. is eaten as white flour. Only 2 percent is eaten as whole wheat flour! In traditional diets, 75-80 percent of total dietary energy comes from whole grains.
U.S. children who eat the recommended levels of fruits, vegs, and grains: 1 percent
American who are aware that eating less meat reduces colon cancer risk: 2 percent
