Cancer's Favorite Food
This Nutrition Bite looks at a key question in the battle to
stand up to Cancer…
Why is sugar cancer’s favorite food?
The short answer is that cancer cells feed on sugar. Yes, these cells need fuel too, and the substance they feed on most and best is glucose.
However, there are many forms of sugar in the foods we commonly eat, so this is important information if you’re trying to prevent these cells growing.
Dr. Otto Warburg was the first to discover the metabolic characteristics of cancer over 100 years ago. Research during the 1990s found that cancer cells contain exponentially more insulin receptor sites than healthy cells do.
Now new evidence suggests that sugar may encourage cancer tumor cells to grow directly. (1)
Here is more proof of the connection between sugar and cancer:
- Before a person diagnosed with cancer gets a PET (Positron Emission Tomogra-phy) scan, the patient is usually given an injection of sugar. As cancer cells rush to the sugar molecules, the doctor can determine how much cancer is there. (that one is freaky!!)
- Glucose is used as a “bait” in certain cancer therapies such as IPT (Insulin Potentiated Therapy).
- Sugar affects a protein called MondoA, which is responsible for turning genes on and off, according to researchers at the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah. (2)
The good news is that cutting off the supply of sugar into the body appears to suppress cancer growth, says a 2011 report published in the journal Nutrition and Metabolism. (3)
And according to researchers at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, starving cancer of sugar activates a “metabolic and signaling amplification loop” that literally results in cancer cell death and heightened effectiveness of antioxidant cancer therapies like vitamin C. (4)
THAT PUTS YOU IN THE POWER POSITION. You can make informed choices.
Removing cancer-causing toxins, moving your body, and following a healthy diet that’s low in sugar are all essential for avoiding and beating cancer…
But it’s not everything that’s needed.
To conquer cancer, you also have to address the “Missing Link” that’s ignored by Conventional medicine in favor of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and the newest “wonder drug”.
