As you may or may not know by now, not all carbs are created equal. Countless studies have shown that eating complex carbohydrates in the form of fruits, some starches, and legumes can help you you lose weight. But a new study suggests that eating the wrong sorts of carbs can pose a serious risk to your health -- a risk you may have not even considered! inpost The study, published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention,  found that people whose diets included a large amount of high-glycemic foods -- like white bread, potatoes, and refined/processed foods, saw their risk for lung cancer increase by 49%! Insane, right? Here's what's happening: high-glycemic foods spike your blood sugar and causes your body to produce more insulin. This increased level of insulin then produces proteins called insulin-growth factors which have been linked to a greater likelihood of lung cancer. [bctt tweet="New Study Links Eating Carbs To An Increased Risk Of Cancer"] For the purposes of the study, the researchers from the  University of Texas Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, gathered 1,095 newly diagnosed lung cancer patients and 2,413 healthy people from clinics in the area, and analyzed their diets as well as other factors like smoking and physical activity level. Each participant was interviewed by medical staff, had their vital stats recorded, and filled out a questionnaire about their diets and habits. FEATURED-abs The participants with the highest daily glycemic index had a 49% higher risk for developing lung cancer compared to those with the lowest daily glycemic index. Oddly, non-smokers in the highest glycemic group were twice as likely to develop the disease than non-smokers in the lowest group. Smokers in the high glycemic group had a 31% greater chance of developing lung cancer compared to smokers in the lowest glycemic group. Before you start to panic, it is worth noting that this study included  only non-Hispanic whites so we don't yet know how these findings would translate in other populations. This is the largest study to date to investigate the link between carbs and lung cancer and provides more evidence that diet, both on its own and coupled with other factors, can play a role in your risk for cancer. The study's authors have noted that more research is needed to determine exactly what the link is between glycemic index and a risk for lung cancer. inpost2 Until that research is done, it is best to avoid simple carbs and eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
