New Study Reveals Sugar Doesn’t Just Feed Cancer, It CAUSES Cancer

New Study Reveals Sugar Doesn’t Just Feed Cancer, It CAUSES Cancer:

Research Reveals How Sugar Causes Cancer

The average American consumes their body weight annually in this cancer-causing substance, and yet hospitals freely feed it to their cancer patients, oblivious to the harm it does.

Hospitals feed cancer patients sugar and high carbohydrate diets for a reason: they are abysmally ignorant of the role of nutrition in health and disease — hence their burgeoning growth and packed rooms.

Even though the science itself shows (at least since the mid-20’s with Otto Warburg’s cancer hypothesis) that tumors prefer to utilize sugar fermentation to produce energy rather than the much more efficient oxygen-based phosphorylation*, hospitals have actually invited corporations like McDonald’s to move into their facilities  to “enhance” their patient’s gustatory experience, presumably to provide comfort and take the edge off of the painful surgery, radiation and chemo treatments erroneously proffered to them as the only reasonable “standard of care.”

But the times are changing, with new research requiring these medical institutions to reform their dietary strategies, at least if they wish to claim that their interventions are in fact evidence-based…

New Study Reveals Sugar Doesn’t Just Feed But Causes Cancer

A groundbreaking new study, uncovered by one of the volunteer researchers at Greenmedinfo – Jonathan Middleton – is the first of its kind to identify sugar, not only as a fuel source for an already existing cancer, but as a primary driver in oncogenesis – i.e. the initiation of cancerous characteristics (phenotype) within previously healthy cells.

Published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and titled Increased sugar uptake promotes oncogenesis via EPAC/RAP1 and O-GlcNAc pathways, researchers addressed a common perception (or misperception) in the cancer research community regarding sugar’s relationship to cancer: namely, that “increased glycolysis [sugar based metabolism] is frequently viewed as a consequence of oncogenic events that drive malignant cell growth and survival.”

Study: Sugar Industry Shut Down Research Over Cancer Link

Sugar industry shut down research over cancer link – study:

A newly discovered cache of documents has revealed an alleged decades-long effort by the sugar industry to conceal the detrimental effects of the commodity on consumers’ health.

In a study published Tuesday in the journal PLOS Biology, scientists from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) claim the industry manipulated science, influenced regulations and even shut down its own research when it indicated a link between sugar and heart disease almost 50 years ago.

“The Sugar Association proved to itself that calories from sugar had different metabolic effects than calories from starch,” lead author Cristin E. Kearns, who discovered the industry documents, told UCSF. “This is in stark contrast to its public position, then and now, that all calories are created equal.”

The study claims that a Sugar Research Foundation (SRF) scheme, entitled Project 259, which had been set up to investigate the effects of sugar in animals in 1969, deliberately withheld evidence that sugar consumption creates high levels of triglyceride, a type of fat that travels through the blood – an issue that can lead to poor bladder and cardiovascular health.

Here’s How Industry-Funded “Research” Is Making Us Sick and Fat

“More evidence actually comes from the exponential growth in obesity, cancer, diabetes, et al.

But the profit train rolls on.”


Here’s How Industry-Funded “Research” Is Making Us Sick and Fat:

A scathing new study has put artificial sweeteners under the spotlight and is supporting what health writers have been saying for years.

The researchers have found that most of the previous studies into the sweeteners touting their alleged “health advantages” over using sugar as a sweetener, were written or sponsored by the companies that produce the products.

A trio of researchers from John Hopkins University in Maryland, the University of California San Francisco, and Australia’s University of Sydney took an extensive look at 31 past reviews on the potential weight loss effects of artificial sweeteners. They found that studies directly funded by sweetener companies or published in industry-funded journals were more likely to find positive health benefits compared to reviews funded independently or by the competing sugar industry. Similarly, reviews authored by scientists who had a relevant financial conflict of interest were also less likely to shine a harsh light on sweeteners, either directly via positive results or by putting a positive spin on negative results when discussing their conclusions.

Note that even the “healthy” sweetener that is supposedly made from stevia hardly contains any stevia at all – Truvia is still made up of terrible chemical ingredients that are hazardous to your health.

Earlier this month it was discovered that the sugar industry paid the equivalent of nearly $50,000 in today’s dollars to fund a review back in 1967  that concluded fats were the leading cause of heart disease and sugar had little nothing to do with heart disease risk.

Scientists were paid to downplay link between sugar and heart disease, told to blame saturated fats instead

Scientists were paid to downplay link between sugar and heart disease, told to blame saturated fats instead:

The sugar industry launched a campaign in the 1960s to downplay evidence linking sugar consumption to America’s rising cardiovascular disease rates, and blame saturated fats instead, according to a new report released earlier this month.

A researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, recently discovered internal documents from the sugar industry and correspondence letters between the leaders of a trade group called the Sugar Research Foundation (SRF) – known today as the Sugar Association – and heart disease researchers.

The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found that the sugar industry paid prestigious Harvard scientists to publish research blaming dietary fat, not sugar, to be the main culprit of coronary heart disease.

“Animal studies have shown that refined sugar is more addictive than cocaine, heroin or morphine,” says Dr. Pamela Peeke, author of The Hunger Fix. “An animal will choose an Oreo over morphine. Why? This cookie has the perfect combination of sugar and fat to hijack the brain’s reward center.”

Sugar is extremely addictive, just watch your kids and grandkids.

And it is deadly, the perfect slow kill.

MSG is the perfect fertilizer and sugar is rocket fuel for cancer.

Scientists Discover New Link Between Sugar And Cancer:

It’s no secret that sugar is incredibly bad for you. The typical American diet, which probably has more added sugar than any national diet in the world, is known to cause obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease, tooth decay, nutrient deficiencies, and of course, cancer (and that’s just the short list). Cancer in particular, has been connected to sugar consumption for some time now, by both mainstream and alternative medicine. Plenty of theories have been posited to explain the precise mechanism for how sugar fuels cancer growth, and it seems that modern science has just discovered another compelling link.

The Cameleon That Is Coca-Cola Faces British Heat!:

By Dr hc Harald Gaier ND DO DHomM DBotM and Robert Verkerk PhD

A recently published study from Tufts University in the US has found that sugary beverages have been estimated to kill around 200,000 people every year. That’s the equivalent of over 330 Jumbo jets going down annually, courtesy of ‘soda pops’. The authors found that 72% of these deaths were attributable to type 2 diabetes, 24% from heart disease and the remaining 4% from cancer.

Coca-Cola, the originator of the ‘soda pop’ has, it seems, been doing all it can to refuse any responsibility….echoing Big Tobacco’s thirty year cover-up. But in the wake of the scandal over VW’s emission-cheating chip, Coca-Cola finds itself under the spotlight following a detailed investigation by The Times newspaper of London. Courtesy of Alexi Mostrous’s journalism, murky dealings of how the company has tried to manipulate both research findings and public opinion were littered across the UK’s number one broadsheet newspaper.

Scientific Team Sounds The Alarm On Sugar As A Source Of Disease

Scientific team sounds the alarm on sugar as a source of disease (Medical Xpress, Jan 2, 2015):

Is sugar making us sick? A team of scientists at the University of California in San Francisco believes so, and they’re doing something about it. They launched an initiative to bring information on food and drink and added sugar to the public by reviewing more than 8,000 scientific papers that show a strong link between the consumption of added sugar and chronic diseases.

The common belief until now was that sugar just makes us fat, but it’s become clear through research that it’s making us sick. For example, there’s the rise in fatty-liver disease, the emergence of Type 2 diabetes as an epidemic in children and the dramatic increase in metabolic disorders.
