Glucose Sugar Feeds Cancer!

Sugar grabs oxygen with a vengeance! Human beings live on oxygen and give off or exhale carbon dioxide (CO2). Plants live on carbon dioxide and give off oxygen (O2).To live among the trees and plants is healthy.
“One may wonder how any cell can survive, much less grow, in the absence of oxygen. But it so happens that plant cells are like that. Oxygen is a plant waste product that they discard. In other words, cancer cells are plant cells that live within an animal.
I understand that the National Cancer institute verified Otto Warburg’s theories in the 1950s. However, very little work has been done to determine the causes of a lack of oxygen to the human body.
A German biochemist, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered the cause of cancer back in 1923 and he received the 1931 Nobel Prize for doing so. In his book, The Metabolism of Tumors, Dr. Warburg demonstrated that the primary cause of cancer was (is) the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory chemistry of normal cells by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is a fermentation process which can be initiated only in the relative absence of oxygen.
Ever since Warburg’s discovery, researchers have been attempting to stop the fermentation process through drugs, radiation and surgery.” (from the book, Reverse Aging, by Sang Whang.)
Anybody who has ever made wine knows about fermentation in the absence of oxygen.
What’s the salient point here? Sugar feeds cancer via a fermentation process in the relative absence of oxygen.
What to do? Withhold the cancer fuel—sugar—and starve the cancer. Cancer tumors are sugar junkies. The more sugar in the diet, the more and faster cancer grows. See quote above from Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions listed above.
So we get off of the glucose sugar diet and get on the ketogenic diet which is an extremely low carbohydrate and sugar free diet. There is a case of two female pediatric patients who had malignant astrocytoma tumor, which has no prognosis but death. They instead have survived more than six years after eliminating sugar. They are still alive and well at last report. In summary, cancer can’t live in the presence of oxygen. Sugar in the diet feeds cancer tumors. A switch to the ketogenic diet and almost no carbohydrates or sugar causes cancer cells to die.
