Melbourne: Cancer cells thrive on glucose, so eating a low glycaemic index (GI) diet or food rich in slowly digested carbohydrates may reduce risk of tumours, an Australian researcher has claimed. Jennie Brand-Miller of University of Sydney said a review of 10 studies shows eating a high GI (glycemic index) diet for five years or more may increase the risk of breast cancer by eight per cent compared with a low GI diet. "With the average Australian diet consisting of far too many high GI foods, this is a major cause for concern," Australian Associate Press (AAP) quoted Brand-Miller as saying.
