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?

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
