Link between high carb diet and breast cancer is misleading

A recent study links breast cancer to high carbohydrate levels. However, the study results are misleading as carbohydrates can come from many sources. The results may mean that breast cancer risk increases with carbohydrates consumed but the link may really depend on the type of carbohydrate consumed. For example, carbohydrates in the form of soft drink and white bread may prove a link whereas high carbohydrates in the form of fruit and whole grains may have no link. Thus, results from studies like these are generally quite meaningless.
