Bread and pasta and breast cancer / Uso di pane e pasta e rischio tumorale


"Our cancer studies suggest that higher white bread consumption (28g/day or approximately 7 slices/week compared to 1 slice/week) increased cancer risk more than pasta consumption. The direct association between bread and colorectal cancer risk was present in women but not men suggesting that women may be more sensitive to sources of carbohydrate and may consider reducing their consumption of white bread. The substitution of white bread with other foods depends on personal health goals. Options could include vegetables, fruit, legumes or pasta. A simple switch from bread to pasta can have several advantages. For example it may displace cancer promoting foods such as red meat and cold cuts, while adding the health benefits of pasta sauces including vegetables (e.g. broccoli), tomatoes, nuts and olive oil which have shown cardiovascular benefits and cancer fighting effects."
