Cancer cells thrive on Sugar and new study suggests that consuming sugar sweetened beverages increases the risk of endometrial cancer

According to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, women who are postmenopausal and consume sugar sweetened beverages are more likely to develop endometrial cancer than those who didn’t.

In fact, the study points out that high sugar intake can increase the risk of endometrial cancer by 78%. The leading author of the study, Maki Inoue-Choi, Ph.D says “Although our study is the first one to show this relationship, it is not surprising to see that women who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages had a higher risk of estrogen-dependent type I endometrial cancer but not estrogen-independent type II endometrial cancer. Other studies have shown increasing consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages has paralleled the increase in obesity. Obese women tend to have higher levels of estrogens and insulin than women of normal weight. Increased levels of estrogens and insulin are established risk factors for endometrial cancer.”

Sugar poses a serious health risks contributing to over 35 million deaths annually

In a report published in the journal Nature, the researchers at University of California stated that sugar poses a serious risk to human’s health and has been contributing to 35 million deaths globally, every single year.

Not to mention that sugar kills more people than all the drugs combined, but it’s regulated and considered safe by the junk food industry and regulatory agencies. Sugar should be considered as toxic as tobacco and alcohol. One major health threat is the substitute sugar sweetners added to foods and beverages which cause diabetes. Rightfully, both Coca cola and PepsiCo are the largest donators to American diabetic association and they benefit from hiding GMO high fructose corn syrup subsidized in their in their toxic drinks.

Cancer Thrives on sugar:

cancer-thrives-on-sugarIt’s a fact that cancer cells thrive on sugar and all these years, many researchers and scientific community members have been saying that eliminating sugar from your diet is an effective way at avoiding cancer gremlins.

But it’s regulated and considered safe by the food industry and toxicity of High fructose corn syrup

Basically, people who are on a diet high in organic raw fruits and vegetables (full of antioxidants, phytochemicals and bioflavonoids) could starve cancer cells by depriving them from the white poison called ‘refined/white sugar’.

In fact, in a study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers at University of Utah discovered that sugar (in particular refined/white sugar) feed cancer cells and contribute to diseases such as diabetes.

"It's been known since 1923 that tumor cells use a lot more glucose than normal cells. Our research helps show how this process takes place, and how it might be stopped to control tumor growth," says Don Ayer, Ph.D., a Huntsman Cancer Institute investigator and professor in the Department of Oncological Sciences at the University of Utah.

You can starve cancer cells by depriving them from glucose:

In a study published in the journal Molecular Systems Biology, the UCLA researchers investigated how cancer cells have a great appetite for sugar and metabolism of glucose affects the biochemical signal that exists in cancer cells.
According to sciencedaily.com, the leading author of the study, Thomas Graeber and his colleagues discovered that depriving cancer cells from glucose activates a metabolic and signaling amplification loop that leads to cancer cell death as a result of the toxic accumulation of reactive oxygen species, the cell-damaging molecules and ions targeted by antioxidants like vitamin C.

Amazingly, while alternative cancer therapies like high dosages of vitamin C are suppressed by US regulatory agencies like FDA, more toxic forms of sugar like aspartame and high fructose corn syrup are considered safe and added to most processed foods:

While more and more studies and research are pointing to the fact that cancer thrives on sugar, the junk food industry comes up with more toxic forms of sugar to poison you and your family.

Toxic high fructose corn syrup subsidized by your tax dollars and toxic artificial sweeteners and additives are considered safe by FDA and USDA. The junk food industry spends about $10-$12 billion a year marketing their toxic products to your children and about $2 billion is spent on ads promoting toxic high-calorie junk foods with little or no nutritional value.

These are the same corporations who wrap their junk foods in brightly and exciting colored packages and leave them at kid’s eye level in convenience stores. They hire supermodels and gorgeous twenty year olds to attend lavish corporate parties in order to promote their junk foods, energy drinks, coca cola or Pepsi to young kids and teenagers.

These companies are knowingly manufacturing products that poison their consumers. More importantly, they make their product look like cartoon characters to appear cool and hip and sexy or fun, so they can get your children hooked on them. Just like Tobacco industry, the junk food industry knows that if they get your kids hooked on their products when they are young enough, they will have them as a customer for life.

How could we let our kids be diagnosed with chronic conditions like diabetes or cardio problems? In fact, just in US alone, every year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. We allow our children to grow up with a devastating health epidemic that will hunt them for the rest of their lives while these health problems could easily be taken under control by right nutrition and healthy life style. We allow these giant multi-billion dollar predator companies devour our health, liberty and food supply and get richer by building a great wealth at the expense of our health and flaunt it on their expensive yachts and brag about it at their exclusive private sports clubs.

When are we going to make a conscious decision that our tax dollars should benefit ourselves, not the corporate elites like the biotech industry that receives billions of dollars in corn subsidy?

We all create a society that we live in. The real change does not have to start tomorrow, it can start today.  If you are made to believe that your life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean, keep in mind that what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?

Your true health care reform can start today, in your kitchen, not in Washington.
