There is a large trend to hate carbohydrates, but all carbohydrates are not created equal. Yes, there is good reason to moderate the refined carbohydrates like doughnuts but whole grains when included as part of an overall balanced diet may reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Whole grains provide your body with the whole benefit of a grain which includes the fibre. Fibre helps to lower the rate at which the sugar from the food is released into your blood. Your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin which allows your cells to take up the sugar out of the blood to use as fuel for your body. Having a slow release of insulin and sugar into your blood helps with optimal mood and concentration as well as assisting in maintaining a healthy weight.

If you eat a highly refined carbohydrate food your body need to release a lot more insulin and can lead to a condition know as insulin resistance. This is when due to the excess amount of insulin being pumped out your body does not respond as it should to the insulin. This leads to sugar building up in your blood and over time can lead to diabetes.

The bad news for your body does not end there with excess insulin in your blood. Research has shown that having a high level of insulin in your blood can promote breast cancer cells to grow and develop.

Take home message: To reduce your risk of cancer there are lots of lifestyle choices you can make and one of these is including whole grain containing foods like Corn Thins slices in your day.
