    The cancer article is great information, but it also highlights the need for science reporting to be done with more care. “Carbs” here really refers to highly-processed grains and simple sugars; but the use of such a broad term implicates, I assume unintentionally, nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole-food grains. The article *sort of* clarifies this further down in the text, but “carbs cause cancer” seems like an irresponsible headline. Maybe I’m oversensitive, as I’ve seen journalism misinterpret my own research!

      You probably know more than I do if that’s what you research! I’ve found that living causes cancer. That’s all I know to be true 😉

    Awesome list! That LA times article bugs me though! I feel like we routinely overlook the factors of stress and depression and their effect on the body. Stress is known to cause higher levels of insulin, weight gain, and cancer, and multitude of other ailments. But we just pin it on carbs and sugar, something many cultures have lived and thrived off of for centuries. I’ve found in my own life that when people work on the stress and work on healing their traumas, their health improves dramatically. But I’m sure people won’t agree with me! The over-emphasis on diet in our culture is one of the things that actually contributes to our weight gain and the higher rates of eating disorders in our country. I say let go and work on feeling good and healing. If anyone is interested, Health at Every Size by Dr. linda bacon is an excellent source to get out of the diet cycle :). Lots of loooooove!

      Thanks for the input!

      I’ve heard great things about Dr.Bacon, and also strongly recommend Christy Harrison and Dr.Laura Thomas. Amazing women that know a great deal about nutrition and how to spot nutribollocks (nutrition bollocks haha).
