Recently, it has been discovered that the sugar industry has buried evidence for more than 50 years, linking the explosion of cancer and cardiovascular disease to sugar consumption.
Every cell in the body needs some form of sugar to survive. This is glucose. Glucose metabolism allows cells to harness adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or energy. However, cancer cells are faster than healthy cells and break down sugar much faster. This is the so-called Warburg Effect. SOURCE
We have known about this effect since the 1920s. Otto Warburg and colleagues found that tumors assimilated impressive amounts of glucose, compared to surrounding healthy tissue. At the end of his studies, Warburg concluded that cancer cell death will occur by suppressing glucose and oxygen.
Later, the scientist's colleagues discovered that the fermentation process changed the tumor structure, saying that genetics and environmental factors may be the cause, but the growth was controlled by the fermentation process.
The 9-year study that tracked the link between sugar and cancer
Professor Johan Thevelein and his colleagues have studied different fermions, because they contain the same proteins as cancer cells. When glucose and fructose enter a cell, it is converted to fructose-1,6-bisphosphate (Fru1.6bisP). This, say the researchers, activates Ras proteins, which amplify fermentation and cause cell proliferation. SOURCE
In a statement, Prof. Thevelein said, "Our research reveals how exacerbated sugar cell consumption leads to a vicious cycle of cancer stimulation and growth. Thus, it is able to explain the correlation between the strength of the Warburg effect and the aggressiveness of the tumor. This link between sugar and cancer is overwhelming. Our results provide a basis for future research in this area, which can now be conducted with more specific attention. SOURCE
The American Cancer Research Institute says there is no direct link between sugar consumption and the occurrence of cancer, but there is an indirect link. Each cell in the body needs a form of sugar (glucose) to survive. We get natural glucose from carbohydrates, including cereals and dairy. However, eating a diet high in carbohydrates and too much refined sugar leads to excess calories and weight gain and obesity. Overweight can cause multiple forms of cancer. SOURCE
Therefore, be aware and selectively eat, trying to remove refined sugar from your diet.
