Refined Carbs Linked to Throat Cancer?


In case you were still eating refined carbs (foods made with white flour), here's some news that may help curb your craving. Eating products made with refined white flour like white bread, bagels, pasta, and cakes may increase your chance of throat cancer (also called cancer of the esophagus). Interestingly enough, this kind of cancer is also linked to obesity and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), which may also be caused by eating a lot of refined carbs.

We're talking about foods that are very low in nutrients here. So not only is it a good idea to limit your intake of refined carbs because they won't give you nourishment or energy, but with this news, now we know those foods may also cause disease.

Fit's Tip: There's no reason to eliminate the foods you love, just find healthier alternatives that are made with whole grain flour instead.
