Sugar and cancer: Is there a link?

(CNN)  Does sugar, which makes all things delicious, lead to cancer?

A biologic mechanism in yeast cells may explain the relationship between sugar and malignant tumors, according to a recent study published in the journal Nature Communications.
The nine-year research project may even influence personal medicine and diets for cancer patients, the authors concluded. The study begins by looking closely at cancer cells’ appetite for sugar.

Everything we said in Sugar Crush is correct

In the paper, published online Friday in the journal Nature Communications, the authors report that a “reciprocal” interaction between ras and the identified sugar molecule “may lock cancer cells in a vicious cycle causing both persistent stimulation of cell proliferation and continued maintenance of overactive glycolysis. This would explain the close correlation between the proliferation rate and aggressive character of cancer cells and their fermentation hyperactivity.”

It’s a “vicious cycle of continued stimulation of cancer development and growth,” said one of the study’s senior authors, Johan Thevelein, in a follow-up press statement—an interaction that seems to “explain the correlation between the strength of the Warburg effect and tumor aggressiveness.”

Sugar in your diet can trigger Alzheimer’s Disease

Here is why using more sugar can cause Alzheimer’s disease
from Science and more

Glucose weakens the key enzyme called MIF, or inhibitory factor of the migration of macrophages that resists the spread of the disease. Normally, the MIF would be part of the immune response to the accumulation of abnormal proteins in the brain, and we think that because the sugar damage reduces some functions of the MIF and completely inhibits others that this could be a turning point that Allows Alzheimer’s to develop, Worldwide 50 million people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and the figure could reach 125 million by 2050, according to a study

High-sugar diets raise heart disease risk in healthy people

If you had read Sugar Crush you would have already know this.

A groundbreaking study has found that just 3 months on a high-sugar diet alters fat metabolism in such a way that it may cause even healthy people to raise their risk of heart disease.

The study suggests that the liver deals with fat differently on a high-sugar diet than it does on a low-sugar diet.
