BREAST CANCER PREVENTION TIP #4 CUT DOWN ON THE SUGAR!!

WHY?...

Tumor cells rely on GLYCOLYSIS for their energy supply; therefore, a HIGH GLUCOSE intake provides a favorable condition for increasing proliferation and angiogenesis and decreasing apoptosis (cell death) of cancer cells.

STICK TO LOW GI FOODS..

Low glycemic index (GI) foods produce lower glucose and insulin responses following food intake, and have been associated with lower breast cancer risk.

LOW GI FOODS include whole grains, beans, lentils, chickpeas, basmati/black/wild rice, most non-starchy vegetables, berries, apples, nuts and seeds.

LIMIT HIGH GI FOODS - this includes refined sugar, white bread/pasta, processed food, biscuits, cakes, chocolate, lollies, potato chips, white potato, rice (medium white & brown, arborio, jasmine).
