Not going to blow up...they've got better manners than that here The problem is the veggies themselves in that you would have to predigest and choose a veggie that didn't turn into some for of sugar once that process was started. ciao

I've wondered this for a while- is what we're avoiding the sugar actually being ABSORBED, resulting in a blood sugar spike, causing insulin levels to go out of whack in order to correct the spike, which puts stress on the pancreas more often than it can handle and increases cancer risk?
Or is it the system simply SEEING a potential carbohydrate, causing stronger enzymes to be made in preparation, which stresses it out more often and increases cancer risk, with actual available sugars irrelevant?
For example, alfalfa is tremendously hard to get anything out of, so much so that regular consumers of it actually eat it twice after their own cecum goes to work on it, whereas a strawberry is digested the first time around. Is a ferret's response stronger to alfalfa, which takes the body a lot of work and has little-to-no sugar impact, or a strawberry, which takes the body very little work, but has a very high sugar impact?
