Americans consume an alarming amount of sugar, which according to research, may be contributing to cancer. The theory that cancer cells feed on sugar has been gaining creditability within the scientific community for years.
The most recent findings to support this idea are published in the journalCancer Research. The research conducted at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center suggests a particular type of sugar--fructose--may be especially harmful.
Fructose, in the form of high fructose corn syrup, is added to thousands of processed foods, even ones that don’t seem particularly sweet, such as bread, yogurt and spaghetti sauce.
Tests on laboratory mice found that the ones that consumed diets high in sugar developed breast cancer at a much higher rate than mice that consumed diets lower in sugar.
Furthermore, the research suggests that diets high in sugar cause cancer to metastasize faster than diets lower in sugar. High fructose diets spurred the process known as 12-LOX, which contributes to the spread of cancer cells.
Study researcher Lorenzo Cohen said, "A lot of patients are told it doesn’t matter what you eat after you are diagnosed with cancer. This preliminary animal research suggests that it does matter."
CBN News interviewed Dr. Dominic D’Agostino, one of the leading researchers supporting the theory that cancer cells feed on sugar, and that depriving them of that primary fuel sources causes them to die.
