Sugar Feeds Cancer! Part 1
December 20, 2011 by Bob Livingston
Cancer cells have a massive dependence on sugar as a fuel source. The higher the blood sugar level, the higher the risk of cancer and every other disease.
What do we mean by sugar? Sugar is white sugar, carbohydrates. The biggest culprit of all is fructose corn syrup. Fructose corn syrup alone is destroying the health of the American people.
Are you reading labels? Fructose corn syrup is a base or filler in thousands of foods. It is a “sugar” that bypasses the pancreas, causing massive increases in insulin and creating an epidemic of obesity. Can’t we look out at our neighbors and see it?
Sugar causes high insulin levels that tell the body to store sugar as fat. It also tells the body not to release any stored fat. This makes it impossible to use our own stored body fat for energy. So excess sugar (carbohydrates, fructose corn syrup) in the diet not only makes us fat, but makes sure we stay fat.
High levels of insulin cause major health problems. Think diabetes, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol (and other lipids), heart disease and kidney disease. Female breast cancer, infertility and neurodegeneration are all related to excess sugar, which, in turn, causes high insulin levels.
Diets high in refined sugars release more insulin, causing excess fat storage.
Too much insulin caused by too much refined sugar is the key to the vast majority of chronic illness. In other words, sugar feeds cancer because cancer cells are massively dependent on sugar.
What can the individual do? I believe there are answers:
- Switch to a diet with as high a percentage of fresh vegetables as possible. Avoid most meats except chicken and fish — preferably organic, meaning they were not raised on genetically modified foods and pumped full of antibiotics. This is simple but proven beyond a doubt not only to arrest diseases like cancer and heart disease, but actually to reverse them. Please view the DVD “Forks Over Knives.” The answer is change of diet, but this is anathema to the drug cartel that owns conventional medicine in the United States. They have ingrained the heresy that drugs replace food in the healing process.
- Switch your sweetener to stevia. At one time, the Food and Drug Administration stopped stevia from coming into the United States, and after that it had to be sold as a “dietary supplement,” not as a sweetener.
