The study was conducted by researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston who observed the dietary habits of more than 1,000 stage 3 colon cancer patients over a period of six months and found a link between increased risk of cancer recurrences or death among the patients and higher dietary glycemic load and total carbohydrate intake.

"Given that patients who consume high glycemic loads or carbohydrates after cancer diagnosis may have consumed a similar diet before diagnosis, we cannot exclude the possibility that individuals with these dietary exposures acquire tumors that are biologically more aggressive", lead researcher Dr Jeffrey Meyerhardt said.
