Let’s just dive right into the heart of the matter here, the 2013-2014 Journal of Clinic Investigation found that increase sugar consumption was highly correlated with oncogenesis (production of cancer cells).
To say this another way, they examined an in vitro study that demonstrated that increased sugar intake was directly correlated to the early phases of when normal cells are transformed into cancer cells.
This hurts my ears a bit to hear because I generally like to get my daily fix of sweets via granola bars, yogurt, cereal or vanilla iced latte. All of which have way more sugar in them than I would like to admit.
Just because we consider it a “health” food doesn’t mean that it’s void of sugar.
And if you’re anything like me, you’re not thinking of the long-term consequences, maybe a little extra belly fat, but cancer never comes on my radar. Until now.
The truth is, eating sugar isn’t just about get fat anymore, we now know it plays a big part in cancer development.
It’s a no-brainer when it comes to avoiding sodas, juices with added sugars, pastries, candies, and processed foods that use processed grains and even add sugar or HFCS to foods that are not even sweet.
That’s to keep you addicted even if you can’t taste it. Refined sugar is actually addictive, some claim it’s even as addictive as cocaine.
Study: Sugar Is Carcinogenic
But now it’s even worse. Green Med Info has uncovered a study that seems to be hidden from the public eye and is certainly not welcome within our orthodox oncology system. It would cramp the food and soda business’s profits if refined sugar is seen as carcinogenic.
The study, “Increased sugar uptake promotes oncogenesis via EPAC/RAP1 and O-GlcNAc pathways” was published in the 2013-2014 Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI). Because it is a free access journal, you can access the full text, not just the abstract, here.
I wonder how come this study hasn’t made much of a stir in our sick-care system since it is so accessible. Instead, it was dug up by a research scout for Green Med Info.
It is, of course, full of biochemical details, which is what medical people are supposed to be familiar with.
So for now, let’s be content with a layman’s summary report of their study, which was an in vitro (cultures, Petri dishes, and test tubes) study as opposed to an in vivo (animal or human) study. This way they could really play around with and analyze the results with a total control.
Here’s the bottom line of this study: Increased glucose uptake leads to early phases of cancer cell creation while curbing glucose intake reversed cancerous cells into normal cells. In other words, sugar is carcinogenic as well as fodder for already existing cancer cells.
It’s important to not confuse the enormous amount of refined sugar, table sugar or HFCS, one takes in with sodas and processed foods with naturally occurring sugars and fructose in plant foods, regardless of how high the glycemic index may be.
Fruit juices don’t need added sugars, but many fruit juices have sugar added. That’s the type of beverage or food that needs to be avoided.
But table sugar is refined, and most of the shelf bread and pastries are composed of refined grains that are refined carbohydrates, which become sugar instantly without any compensating nutrition.
They are processed out of whole foods to be independent of other compounds that balance natural whole foods to make them beneficial.
Food Journal Is the Pathway Out
My advice would be to take a meticulous food journal so you can get honest accurate information about how much daily sugar you’re getting. From here it’s easy to trim off the excess sugar snacks you can live without.
Go a week, then trim a little more. Do the same thing the next few weeks until you arrive at hardly any sugar consumption, with the exception of a weekly cheat day. This will provide maximum protection. This video below gives more insight into all of this.
