How Sugar Fuels the Growth of Cancer

Researchers may be able to explain how sugar might fuel the growth of cancer. They say it boils down to one type of sugar in particular: fructose.  Tests in mice show a possible mechanism for how it happens. The findings, published in the journal Cancer Research, support studies that suggest people who consume more sugar have a higher risk of cancer — especially breast cancer.

The researchers fed mice four different diets that were either heavy in starch or heavy in different types of sugar. What they found is that “Any sugar helped make the tumors grow faster, but fructose did it significantly more. ”

The implications for people are clear. Cohen notes that fructose consumption in the U.S. surged from about half a pound a person a year in 1970 to more than 62 pounds a year in 1997. That’s mainly due to the broad use of high fructose corn syrup.

Cancer Loves Sugar

As we’ve posted before cancer cells feed on sugars. Watch this video excerpt from 60 Minutes to find out more.

If you have cancer, you should avoid sugar of any kind. If you don’t want cancer, I suggest that you limit your sugar intake. Avoid “high fructose corn syrup”, and processed sugars. If you want to lose weight, avoid things that quickly become sugar (white breads, potato, rice, alcohol, etc). Reducing these things has a major impact on your liver and pancreas.

Cheerios Nutrition: Is This Popular Food Actually Healthy for Kids & Adults?

Article Summary

  • Cheerios boast that they are made from heart healthy whole grains with no added dyes. Therefore it would be easy to assume that Cheerios are a safe, nutritious choice for breakfast − but are they?
  • Unfortunately, what’s NOT listed or listed accurately on the Cheerios nutrition label is of bigger concern than what’s shown on the label:
    • Acrylamide
    • Sugar sources
    • Emulsifiers
    • Flavor enhancers
    • Inorganic salts
    • Tocopherols
  • The process of toasting the otherwise healthy wholegrain oats produces high levels of the toxic acrylamide. Acrylamide is a carcinogen that is formed when foods containing carbohydrates and sugar are cooked at high temperatures or for an extended period of time.
  • Monoglycerides and diglycerides are used as cheap emulsifiers and for extending the shelf-life of a product. They are hydrogenated oils made up of fatty acids similar to triglycerides (aka trans fats).
  • You may have used Trisodium Phosphate (aka TSP) to wash your walls before painting them, but did you know that this industrial cleaner is also an ingredient in Cheerios? Unbelievably, the FDA permits food manufacturers to use small amounts of TSP in processed foods as a “flavor enhancer.”
  • Most people eat cereal along with milk. Unfortunately, unless it’s organic milk from grass-fed cows, commercial cow’s milk can be tainted with toxic metals, growth hormone, antibiotics, pus from mastitis, GMOs from animal feed, and many more contaminants unfit for human consumption. You’re far better off using nut milks instead.
  • If you don’t know how to pronounce an ingredient on the label it’s likely the product is better left on the shelf. Choose organic whole foods to get the most nutrients for your body and consume them in their natural organic state whenever posible.
