SUGAR FEEDS CANCER

by kathryn629 on March 15, 2016

Researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah were one of the first to discover that sugar is essential for tumor development. Their research was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In the words of Don Ayer, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Oncological Sciences at the University of Utah “It’s been known since 1923 that tumor cells use a lot more glucose than normal cells. Our research helps show how this process takes place, and how it might be stopped to control tumor growth.”

So far a number of studies have confirmed that people with the highest levels of blood glucose develop more cancers, and that people with cancer, who also have the highest blood levels of glucose, survive least.
