Carbs = Cancer... wait what?
Yeah, that's right, a new study from the University of Texas states that certain types of carbohydrates were associated with a higher risk of lung cancer.
The study found that a diet with a high glycemic index, or GI, elevated the risk of lung cancer in certain populations.
The glycemic index tracks how quickly the carbs you eat turn into sugar, so it’s foods like white potatoes, white bread, and rice cakes that you need to avoid, at least according to the study.
So how do we combat this? Everyone knows that consistently high blood sugar can cause enormous damage to your body. So, we should attempt to eat more veggies and whole grains and less foods with a high glycemic index.
Sooo... pass on the loaf of bread with spaghetti, and aim for a plate of fish and asparagus!
