Sweet, starchy foods raise risk of female cancer; coffee lowers it

Sweet, starchy foods like sugar and white bread probably cause endometrial cancer, while coffee probably protects against it, according to a published September 2013 study.

Furthermore, being obese is probably the greatest cause of the cancer, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) and the World Cancer Research Fund International. “AICR now estimates that most cases of endometrial cancer (59% or about 29,500 per year) could be prevented in the United States if women were more active and maintained a healthy body weight,” the group's statement said.

Endometrial cancer is very common, affecting approximately 50,000 women per year in the USA alone. Estrogen is one known cause of this disease. Fat cells also secrete estrogen and that’s one reason why obesity can cause endometrial cancer, according to Dr. Elisa Bandera of Rutgers University in New Jersey, who helped lead the study. Women who are obese have 2 to 3 times the rate of endometrial cancer of normal women. Physical activity also tends to reduce this rate.

One surprising finding is how coffee can protect against this cancer, while the intake of sugary, starchy foods increases it. Note: The scientists did warn against excessive coffee ingestion in people suffering from high blood pressure, insomnia, and other disorders.

There are at least six studies that indicate glycemic load affects the risk. Refined sugar and white flour in food raise its glycemic load.

The bottom line is: Follow the BioSlim Food Plan if you want to NOT ONLY lose weight, but avoid serious, life-shortening diseases such as cancer (and also cardiovascular disease).
