An eight year Italian study of over 48,000 adults published in the Archives of Internal Medicine demonstrated that women who ate the most high glycemic index (GI) foods increased their risk of developing heart disease by 2.25 times compared to women who consumed the lowest number of high (GI) carbohydrates. Surprisingly, these differences were not as evident in men in the study.

 

Dr. Blackshear’s Comment:

 

This study adds yet another report to the many which illustrate that consumption of refined (high GI) sugars are much more of a health problem in our diet than fats consumed in moderate quantities.
