Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Here's what they found. If you're worried about your sodium intake, watch out for the bread. What do you think has more salt: a slice of bread or a pack of potato chips? It depends, but in some cases, the answer may surprise you. Some of the products analyzed in the report -- like the rosemary focaccia from Ace Bakery in Canada -- were "saltier than seawater." That loaf had more than a teaspoon's worth of salt per 100g (or about two slices), exceeding the recommended daily sodium intake. A popular product from South Africa, Golden Crust's toaster bread, had the most salt per serving among all white breads in the survey: 2.46g per 250g portion. That's "more salt than four portions of McDonald's fries," the report stated.

It would appear that this is an analysis of mass-produced breads, which I haven't bought since.. forever? I use good ingredients, the breads in the study appear to be all re-combinant products with added isolates and preservation.

Why Isn't White Bread Good for You?

"Specifically, foods with a high glycemic index - such as white bread or bagels, corn flakes and puffed rice - may increase the risk of lung cancer, scientists say.

Lead study author Dr Stephanie Melkonian, of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, said:

'We observed a 49 per cent increased risk of lung cancer among subjects with the highest daily GI compared to those with the lowest daily GI.'

And the findings suggest cutting out foods with high glycemic index could reduce a person's risk of developing lung cancer.

Examples of low GI foods include whole-wheat or pumpernickel bread, rolled or steel-cut oatmeal and wholemeal pasta.

- diet police

Since this isn't about regulations, you must be hating on the science and the audacity of some people thinking that the responsible thing to do is to disseminate it to the public. Or maybe the hating is just out of habit.

Don't be silly.

Boiling vegetables is stupid and wasteful and takes away from their flavor. It also reduces their nutrient content.

Keto isn't cool anymore. Too many people on it.

The carnivore diet is the new trendy thing.

Because reporting finds and letting people know and have information is the same as "diet police."

Idiot.

Salt is vital and human are able to self regulate over a wide margin of intake. Too little is worse for most people than too much.
