Is whole wheat bread better than white bread?

When comparing whole wheat directly against white bread, whole wheat appears to be better. The degree of which it is better, however, is uncertain. Some sources claim little to no difference, some epidemiological studies claim much more.

Increasing dietary fiber seems to be implicated in many of the benefits, and can be achieved through increasing plant intake in general (fruits and vegetables included).
