I'm confused: is bread loaded with the same amt. of sugar causing inflammation as a twix bar?

But is eating a slice of bread the same as eating a twix bar? I noticed that it's high on the glycemic index. If anyone can explain, I would love to read. Thanks in advance.

NO! Nothing at all like eating a candy bar.

Is it 1/2 as bad? 3/4? Any way to do a comparison?

More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.

Fully 50% of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

Every piece of bread you eat brings you nearer to death.

Bread is associated with all the major diseases of the body. For example, nearly all sick people have eaten bread. The effects are obviously cumulative:
a. 99.9% of all people who die from cancer have eaten bread.
b. 100% of all soldiers have eaten bread.
c. 96.9% of all Communist sympathizers have eaten bread.
d. 99.7% of the people involved in air and auto accidents ate bread within 6 months preceding the accident.
e. 93.1% of juvenile delinquents came from homes where bread is served frequently.

Evidence points to the long-term effects of bread eating: Of all the people born in 1839 who later dined on bread, there has been a 100% mortality rate.

Bread is made from a substance called "dough." It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average American eats more bread than that in one month!

Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, and osteoporosis.

Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat begged for bread after as little as two days.

Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cold cuts.

Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.

Newborn babies can choke on bread.

Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute. Increased temperatures cause global warming.

Most bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between serious significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical political babbling.

Add comment has a very cool comparison tool. I've put in a link below comparing a slice of white bread to a package of twix. Not sure it'll work, so here's how I got there:

go to
search (upper right hand corner) for white bread
click on the one you want from the list
click "Add to Pantry" (middle of the screen, near the top)
search for twix
click on the one you want
click "Add to Pantry"
click "Pantry" (green tab at very top of screen)
enter the quantities you want to compare (use drop-down menu for more options)
click "compare" (near bottom of screen)

This shows that white bread has SOME nutritional has some protein and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Twix have basically 0 protein and almost no vitamins/minerals, which basically means that it has no nutritional value.

Also check out this link:
for a discussion on the Fullness Factor and Glycemic Index...the Fullness Factor is sort of like nutritiondata's version of the Glycemic Index, although they claim it is more useful than just the GI. At any rate, the FF of white bread is 1.8, which is slightly higher (ie better) than twix's 1.3. The link in this paragraph also does a pretty good job of discussing the might answer your questions.

Very funny writer # 4, ha ha! But seriously folks, not all bread is created equal! Fiber, fat, whole grains versus white flour comes in to play.

I've found that sprouted grain breads are very nutritional! They ARE very dense, though... :-)

But, because they are not made with flour (i.e not ground up grains), they contain a lot more protein and fiber and are much better for you.

You should try out a few brands until you find one that you like. :-) Not all sprouted grain breads taste the same... It is definitely and adjustment in terms of texture.

Subway Bread

Has anyone noticed the Subway clerks trying to rip you off these days by putting on 5 slices of turkey when it should be 6 on a six inch double meat?

I love Subway's bread but what does that question have to do with it?

I don't know, the conversation above was getting a little "stale," if you know what I mean.
