Dr Oz: Do Carbs Cause Lung Cancer?
Carbohydrates have been linked to the national epidemics of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. But new research suggests certain carbs can increase lung cancer risk, especially in people who have never smoked. The largest study of its kind was conducted by the MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, found that carbs with a high glycemic index, refined or white carbs, raise the risk for lung cancer by 49%. Non-smokers who’s diets were highest on the glycemic index were more than twice as likely to develop lung cancer as those who’s diets were on the lowest end of the scale. So could you be at risk?
