My friend and I f-i-n-i-s-h-e-d.
And we didn't D-R-O-W-N.
: ) Very important accomplishments . . . .
All the literature from the race states breast cancer prevention is 'discovered'! But no mention of mod/high cholesterol, mod/high fats or low glycemic-index eating or vitamin D or fish oil or cruciferous veggies.
WTF?? What are they talking about??! BRCA and Met/Syn (thanx Peter)!?? Carb restrictions?? Eliminate omega-6 (cheap industrial veg oils)??!
All they listed was the estrogenic-pesticides in our 'overly' polluted environment. HELL-o?! People don't eat poisonous pesticides daily.
What people with breast cancer consume day-in-day-out are carb-wheat/grains-pollution.
People STUFF these in their faces at every meal...
Total USDA whole grain mis-education.
Bagels -- which every fat lady rolled in carrying???!! wtf? (I can say that b/c I'm a former wheat-whore, fat-lady *hee*)
GU??! High FR**CKIN fructose corn syrup CRPAAA...
No way -- treasure my life... limbs and... boobies (don't you?!)
My wheat-whore/friend (who I *love/adore* and am trying to prevent her from killin herself-- has GRAVE's DISEASE) asked me did I bring my Gu?
HHHhhaaiilllll . . . N . . .O . . . I wanted a good race and good fun and absolutely no bonkin (though I hardly raised my basal heart rate -- maybe the next race). I had nut butter and a couple of eggs that morning. Some high-octane caffeine didn't hurt either.
Whole grains = WHOLE BALONEY
WHOLE grains = WHOLE breast cancer
...As Homer says... Duh...
Studies show in breast cancer HDL2 is low and HDL3 high -- wow... just like other proliferative and inflammatory processes like CAD (coronary artery disease).

Low carb is not only preventive for breast cancer by raising HDL2 (and preventing MetSyn and chronic hyperinsulinemia), it's the way to go for better recovery, fitness, performance for prolonged endurance sports. Yes -- this is counter what athletes are pushed to traditionally do -- !!all those gels/carb-pasta LOADING--C-R-*-P. Our immune system is stronger without frequent carb-assaults. Don't underestimated the power of your immunity which plays a fantastic role in controlling cancer and inflammation. In endurance athletes, plasma concentrations of IL-6 (pro-inflammatory) and IL-10 (anti-inflammatory cytokines -- good stuff) were 2-fold greater on the LOW carb trial than on the HIGH carb trial.
