The whole grain food dilemma

I am going to confess something: I hate whole grain bread and love white bread. There I said it. Sadly, too many informed people think that eating white rather than whole grain bread is better for you.

Being normal people, my kids share my preference. And so to respect the workings of household democracy the choice has been made clear. There is no white bread in the house. If you want bread it is of the grainy variety. And the end result: less bread consumed, no daily discussions and no interest in political philosophy.

According to this video from Slate V, that is apparently the way to go. Although what would happen if it resulted in no bread consumed. Is that worse for health?
