Cynthia Jane Kenyon is a molecular biologist and biogerontologist known for her genetic dissection of aging in a widely used model organism, the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans. Kenyon’s research prompted her to make personal dietary changes. She stopped eating high glycemic index carbohydrates when she discovered that putting sugar on the worms’ food shortened their lifespans.
Diabetics need to remain cautious about what they eat but what about the rest? Shouldn’t this be the option for all and not just diabetics? Everyone should choose to live healthy lives. Sugar can cause many problems – a low GI diet may not suit all, but it’s a better choice for most of us.
