*Consumption of white product linked to kidney cancer, obesity*

IS eating bread good for your health? In recent times there has been claims and counter claims on the health effects of bread and other wheat products.

However, an Italian study published in the International Journal of Cancer has found that eating large quantities of white bread increases the risk of developing kidney cancer.

Scientists from the Institute of Pharmacological Research in Milan, Italy, studied more than 2,300 Italians to determine the link between eating white bread and developing cancer. Nearly 770 of the participants had the disease already, while more than 1,530 did not.

The researchers gave the participants detailed questionnaires about their dietary habits over the previous two years, and found that those who reported eating the most white bread ran the highest risk of developing renal cell carcinoma.

The participants who ate 35 slices of white bread per week — five slices per day — were nearly twice as likely to develop the cancer compared to those who ate 11 slices a week. Those who ate high quantities of poultry, meat and vegetables ran a low risk of kidney cancer.

Meanwhile, the National Agency for Food Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) warns that eating bread produced with potassium bromate is dangerous to health. Potassium bromate has been used for baking since 1914. The problem is that bromides are endocrine disruptors that block the thyroid from absorbing its primary nutrient, iodine.
