White Bread, Cornflakes Take Their Toll On Artery Walls, And On The Heart

July 27, 2009: 08:39 AM EST
Researchers using a new measuring technique have found that high glycemic foods like white bread and corn flakes damage arterial walls, leading ultimately to problems with the heart. It turns out, such foods, which also include French fries and sugary sodas, quickly boost blood sugar levels. That sugar spike causes a dysfunction of the inner layer of cells in arteries. Over time, arteries lose elasticity, a risk factor foreshadowing heart disease and lethal heart attack. "We knew high glycemic foods were bad for the heart,” said a researcher. “Now we have a mechanism that shows how."
