Recent studies have shown that excessive sugar consumption leads to cell intoxication and helps cancer tumors grow.
According to New York Times, a study published online in the journal ‘Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention’ found that drinking sugar-sweetened beverages is linked to an increased risk of endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women. This association between sugar and cancer is the same as sugar and Type 2 diabetes.
It seems like all sugars increase the risk for Type 1 endometrial cancer, but sweetened drinks have the biggest impact of all. Compared with most other dietary sugars, sugars in drinks cause plasma glucose levels to rise higher and fall lower. These fluctuations may be responsible in the increased risk of cancer, according to the experts.
Basically those who drink sweetened drinks on a regular basis are much more likely to develop cancer than those who don’t. Another study published in Nature Medicine explains why. It was found that tumors consume much more glucose than normal tissue due to their abnormally elevated metabolism levels. So sugar actually feeds cancer cells and helps them to grow. As reported by Natural News, sugar creates an acidic environment in the body that allows tumors to thrive.
So, remember: By eliminating refined sugar from the diet can help to reduce the chances of developing cancer!!!
