Great article in “Environmental Nutrition” which reports this research from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
They took 80 people, have overweight and half at normal weight, and had them complete two 28-day feeding periods. One was a diet in high-glycemic carbs, such as white sugar, fruit in canned syrup and white flour. The other was in low-glycemic carbs such as whole-grain breads and cereals.
Among the overweight and obese people, the low-glycemic eating regime reduced the inflammatory marker, c-reactive protein, by 22% and reduced their risk of cancer and metabolic disorders by 5%,
That’s big and yet ANOTHER reason to always eat low-glycemic carbs and avoid the high-glycemic ones.
Bottom line, but the crap. It’s life saving in the long run.
