Other sources. I want to share this with all of you. I hope you will also get some benefits.

Oats don't just lower cholesterol, they also remove it: How does this health benefit work? Oats contain a special soluble finer. It's known as beta-glucan. This fiber traps cholesterol within a gel-like substance in your intestines. Since the gel cannot be digested, it passes through the system, carrying the trapped cholesterol with it.
Oats prevent cancer:Is there no end to the health benefits of oats? How do they prevent cancer? Bile in the large intestine can be converted by bacteria into secondary bile acids. These acids can damage acids intestinal walls and lead to cancer. Oats work to bind the acids and prevent this process. Some other compounds in oats also fight free radicals before issues.
Oats for Weight Loss: Studies have revealed that starting the day with a nutritious, fiber rich meal such as oats can help with maintaining a healthy weight. Oats has been found as having the highest satiety value of all breakfast meals, giving a feeling of fullness for longer
Oats for  Blood pressure:
Individuals who had high blood pressure and oats added to their diet had a significant reduction in blood pressure as well as the need for anti hypertensive medicine
Oats for Bowel Function:
Oats have a high fiber content. Fiber is necessary in keeping bowel movements regular. Oats are high in both soluble and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water. It is spongy and absorbs many times its own weight of liquid. It makes stools heavier and speeds their passage through the gut, relieving constipation.
Oats for children:
New research suggests that children between ages 2-18 years old who have a constant intake of oatmeal lowered their risk of obesity. The research found that the children who ate oatmeal were 50% less likely to become overweight, when compared to those children that did not eat it.
Oats for Beautiful Skin:
Oats are also an amazing natural beauty enhancer. They soothe and heal the skin, while reducing inflammation. Inflammation is one of the number one causes of premature aging, and while it all starts on the inside, reducing outer inflammation is also necessary for gorgeously radiant skin.
Because oats are slightly rough, they are one of nature's most amazing exfoliates. They soften the skin, making it super duper silky smooth. Oats have actually been clinically shown to help heal dry, itchy skin.
Oats may kill HIV:
 The jury is still out on this one, but there is evidence that oats may disable the HIV virus. Research to date points to the sapiens, food compounds found in oats as the probable deterrent to HIV. Imagine if with all the research and money we have spent on AIDS research, the cure may have been in our morning cereal bowl all along.
Oats for Diabetes:
Speaking of blood sugar, eating oatmeal can also help reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Oatmeal contains high amounts of magnesium, which help the body to properly use glucose and secrete insulin. An eight-year trial showed a 19 percent decrease in type 2 diabetes risk in women with a magnesium-rich diet and a 31 percent risk decrease in women who regularly ate whole grains. Like to enjoy your oatmeal with milk? Eating low-fat dairy products reduces the risk of diabetes by 13 percent.
Oats full of Antioxidants:
Oatmeal contains a special type of antioxidant called avenanthramide. Avenanthramides fight off free radicals that attack high-density lipoproteins, or HDL, which is known as the good chorestrol . They also protect LDL cholesterol from oxidizing from copper, which reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
