Are Carbs the New Cigarettes?


Sugar is the new tobacco, at least in the media. Here’s another example. A new study finds that people eating a diet with a high glycemic index – carbs that rapidly elevate blood sugar – have an elevated risk of lung cancer.

Obviously this is only based on statistics and can’t prove that bad carbs cause lung cancer. But if bad carbs can cause obesity and diabetes, why not cancer too?
