One common factor that links obesity, candida, diabetes and cancer is insulin resistance. Science is beginning to realize that insulin resistance is involved in all inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis (inflammation of joints), Alzheimers (inflammation of brain cells), atherosclerosis (inflammation and hardening of the arteries).
Overuse of sugar is linked to all inflammation. This article will explain some of the research behind sugar consumption specifically relating to cancer.
According to Lewis Cantley, director of the Cancer Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at Harvard Medical School, as much as 80 percent of all cancers are “driven by either mutations or environmental factors that work to enhance or mimic the effect of insulin on the incipient tumor cells,” Gary Taubes reports, adding:
“As it was explained to me by Craig Thompson, who has done much of this research and is now president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the cells of many human cancers come to depend on insulin to provide the fuel (blood sugar) and materials they need to grow and multiply. Insulin and insulin-like growth factor (and related growth factors) also provide the signal, in effect, to do it.
The more insulin, the better they do.
Some cancers develop mutations that serve the purpose of increasing the influence of insulin on the cell; others take advantage of the elevated insulin levels that are common to metabolic syndrome, obesity and type 2 diabetes. Some do both.
Thompson believes that many pre-cancerous cells would never acquire the mutations that turn them into malignant tumors if they weren’t being driven by insulin to take up more and more blood sugar and metabolize it.”
Some cancer centers, such as the Cancer Centers of America, have fully embraced this knowledge and place their patients on strict low-sugar, low-grain diets. But conventional medicine in general has been woefully lax when it comes to highlighting the health dangers of this additive.
It’s quite clear that if you want to avoid cancer, or are currently undergoing cancer treatment, you absolutely MUST avoid all forms of sugar!
Dr. Lustig’s work and his You Tube lecture alone have OVER one million views., even though it’s 90 minutes long. His research proves sugar is a “toxin”. His stance has nothing to do with calories in various sweeteners,: “It’s a poison by itself,” he says. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM&feature=player_embedded
“If Lustig is right, then our excessive consumption of sugar is the primary reason that the numbers of obese and diabetic Americans have skyrocketed in the past 30 years,” the NYT says. “But his argument implies more than that. If Lustig is right, it would mean that sugar is also the likely dietary cause of several other chronic ailments widely considered to be diseases of Western lifestyles — heart disease, hypertension and many common cancers among them.”
In Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer - The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally, the direct link to sugar and cancer is clearly expressed. One example is on page 83, where she presents a chart showing the sugar connection with cancer. She also makes dietary suggestions that are easy to follow, and includes a chapter with some simple recipes to help people transition out of sugar and into a healthier, satisfying way of eating.
For optimum health, not just for cancer, but those conditions listed in the opening paragraph, follow healthy lifestyle recommendations as suggested in Benoit’s book. You can order on the above link, by calling the office at 250-748-6802, or by emailing directly to TakeTheNaturalPath@gmail.com.
