How Healthy are the Cornflakes?

In US, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women, but is by far the leading cause of cancer mortality. Accumulating evidence suggests that dietary factors may modulate lung cancer risk, researchers said.

Consumption of foods with a high glycemic index such as white bread, bagels, corn flakes and puffed rice may be associated with an increased risk of developing lung cancer, a new study has warned. The study by scientists from the University of Texas in US is the largest to investigate potential links between glycemic index (GI) and lung cancer.

Glycemic index is a measure of the quality of dietary carbohydrates, defined by how quickly blood sugar levels are raised following a meal. Examples of low GI foods include whole-wheat or pumpernickel bread, rolled or steel-cut oatmeal and pasta.

Foods like cornflakes, biscuits and soft drinks are as addictive as drugs, and now researchers have discovered why people get hooked to certain eatables. New Zealand scientists explained that these and other heavily processed foods with a high glycaemic index (GI) trigger an addictive sugar rush, which could be difficult to resist and may lead to obesity.
