glycemic index

Could diet be responsible for lung cancer? We know the leading cause is cigarette smoking, but what about the 10 percent or so of cases that occur in non-smokers? A new study suggests that a diet high in foods with a high glycemic index may be a culprit. Don't go on a potato and rice-free diet just yet. This study is just about worthless.
The glycemic index (GI) is a number supposedly corresponding to a carbohydrate-containing food s effect on blood glucose levels. A food with a low GI value (dried apricots, steel cut oats) has less impact on blood sugar
