Study: Bagels linked to increased risk of lung cancer

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - This will make you stop spreading the cream cheese and toss that bagel away.

A study says the carbs in bagels can raise your risk for lung cancer.

The University of Texas study says high glycemic diets raise the risk of lung cancer by 49 percent, even for people who never smoked.

High glycemic foods include bagels, white bread, corn flakes, and popcorn. They raise blood sugar quickly.

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer, and the most deadly.
