TEXAS (WIVB) — If white bread, corn flakes, bagels or puffed rice are part of your daily diet, scientists say you could be putting yourself at a higher risk for lung cancer.
More evidence suggests food may regulate the risk for developing the disease.
A new study from Texas shows a relationship between lung cancer risk and various glucose indicators, like the foods we just mentioned.
Scientists studied about 2,000 people recently diagnosed with the cancer, compared to more than 4,000 healthy people.
They found a nearly 50 percent higher risk of lung cancer for people who at the most foods high on the glycemic index, like white bread.
