Want to Kill Cancer Cells? Starve Them!
You watch what you eat… you take your vitamins and supplements.
And it’s all because you want to give your cells the nutrition they need to thrive.
But, believe it or not, the diet choices you make can end up feeding another type of cell, too.
I’m talking about cancer cells – and research shows that one type of food can make them grow and even become more aggressive.
The good news? Cutting this food out of your diet can help starve cancer cells before they can EVER become a threat to your life.
Cancer cells LOVE sugar.
Sugar literally feeds cancer and helps it to grow.
In fact, cancer cells eat sugar 10 times faster than normal cells.
It’s like rocket fuel for them.
And that’s not all…
Sugar can suppress your immune system by 44 percent for as much as five hours, and it contributes to obesity.
And as we just talked about a few weeks ago, obesity accounts for 40 percent of all cancer diagnoses in the U.S.—and is associated with an increased risk of 13 specific types of cancer.
You might be surprised to learn about this sugar/cancer connection. I know most of my patients are.
But you might be even MORE surprised to hear that we’ve know this for nearly 100 years!
It was way back in the 1920s that Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells metabolize energy differently than normal cells.
But did anyone pay attention?
Did anyone sound the warning alarm as the sugar consumption and cancer rates have skyrocketed?
Has your doctor told you about this deadly connection between sugar and cancer?
No, no, and (I’m guessing) no.
But that’s all about to change.
Because more and more researchers have started looking into the WHY behind the sugar/cancer connection. The hope is that with increased understanding, we can figure out ways to cut off the cancer’s food supply chain.
Just recently, researchers from Belgium have taken a big step in answering that question.
The science is pretty technical, but essentially what these researchers found was that consuming too much sugar activated proteins that allowed cancer cells to grow more quickly.
Their hope is that future research will help lead to breakthroughs in how to prevent sugar from impacting cancer cells.
But why wait?
Cutting down your sugar consumption will deprive cancer cells of the food they need to grow and thrive.
And that’s something you have complete control over right now.
To a brighter day,
