Sugar – Cancer’s Fuel
Since the 1920s few health experts along with Dr. Otto Wartburg have been talking about the connection between cancer and sugar, and how cancer loves sugar. Despite knowing all of this information doctors nowadays are not telling their patients to stop consuming processed foods in order to fight the disease effectively.
Since then, the German physiologist, Nobel laureate, medical doctor,leading biochemist, knew that you could starve cancer to death. He said that it is not going to be always easy, but he was sure that it could change the game.
He had a theory in which he believed that tumor growth and malignant cells were caused by cells that generated energy through a nonoxidative breakdown of glucose (sugar) via adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The circulation of adhA back into the body and the recycling of the metabolite from this process called glycolysis caused anaerobic respiration. This is the opposite thing of what happens with the healthy cells. Thenon-cancerous, healthy cells generate energy for the body to use through the oxidative breakdown of pyruvate, the end product of glycolysis, which later transforms into oxidized mitochondria. He therefore concluded that cancer was really a mitochondrial dysfunction. By removing the sugar from your diet, the body cannot develop cancer, because the normal process of respiration of oxygen in the body is changed to the fermentation of sugar.
The link between cancerand sugar development is certainly not new.
The best and most effective way to get rid of the unwanted refined sugars is if you stop buying pre-packaged or ‘convenience’ foods, and if you try to at least lower the number of times you eat in restaurants, because most of the restaurantsget their food resources from the big companies that pack their food with tons of refined sugar and salt to extent their expiration date after being frozen and shipped across the world in trucks. Surprisingly even the salad dressings can be packed with refined sugar. I order to terminate the cravings for sugary foods, increase your healthy animal based proteins (no red meat) and plant-based nutrition-packed foods.
Most of the people can easily stop consuming the obvious culprits that are packed with refined sugar – cookies, chocolate, cakes, candies, etc. The problem is not that, the problem is that many of the products that are sold throughout the USA and throughout the world are full of refined sugars, but are not written on the packaging labels. Products like cereals, whole wheat or whole grain breads, ‘low-calorie’ items, and even the ‘healthy’ yogurt can be full of sugar.
