Objective: The amount and composition of dietary carbohydrates is a major determinant of postprandial blood glucose and insulin, and risk of breast cancer has been positively associated with plasma levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1. We sought to evaluate dietary glycemic load (GL) and overall glycemic index (GI) in relation to breast cancer risk in Mexican women. Methods: We examined dietary GL and overall GI and breast cancer risk among 475 women with histologically-confirmed… CONTINUE READING
