sugar feeds cancer

In 1931, Otto Warburg won the nobel.  He essentially proved that cancer feeds off of sugar.         Do the google yourself and see.  Type in "sugar feeds cancer" and check out what comes up.

A lack of Vitamin D is a crucial variable as well.

Yeah, I am really trying to cut back on my sugar. But I am such a fan of sweets. I gave up up soft drinks (Dr. Pepper, Coke, Sprite, etc.) in 1995 and haven't had any problem with that, it's cookies, cake and that kind of stuff that's my problem.

Of course, the Aspartame in even the diet soft drinks is even worse for your body than sugar. That reminds me that I need to go gulp a big glass of water!

Sugar was hard to give up considering the fact that its looked upon as rude if you don't partake of the sweets.  But I have more energy and I feel so much better.  Even helped my sleep.

That cupcake is just as much "sugar" as that soda.  The whole mess of excess carbs and "empty" carbs does a lot of harm.

Maybe we ought to eat raw veggies and maybe a little raw clean meat.  And go nekkid.  And walk everywhere.  But only at night (no UV rays)...

*Sigh*

I think everything is out to kill us.

If you manage to drop the soda pop and empty bakery goods you're doing very well.

i believe it! i have read so many testimonies of people who cured their cancer by changing their diet and eating whole natural foods. Most of what we have in our grocery stores is poison..not food! ::whistle::

Otto Warburg's studies went further than just sugar.  He proved cancer could not exist if there was enough oxygen.  Sugar can be utilized (fermented) by cancer cells in the absence of enough oxygen.

Other research has shown regular cells can to forced to become cancer cells by oxygen reduction over time.

There are other factors, there always are.  By that I mean there is probably no single solution to a condition that usually takes many factors coming together to make that condition possible.

Not eating sugar is a great idea, but your liver is what produces the sugar that is in the blood.  Eat a carrot or a steak and the liver will make either into sugar for the blood stream.

Sugar ain't the problem, just like fat's not the problem -- us eating mountains of it, no longer is a fairly natural state in a vegetable or some other context that provided other nutrients and fiber and so on -- that's the problem.

That, and the average Westerner no longer works like a slave from dawn to dusk.

Even though we only bought one 2 liter weekly (to go with pizza/video night), a friend showed me a way to eliminate even that soda from our family's diet.

Kombucha!  Took a bit of experimenting, but we find Kombucha bottled with ginger and a bit of raspberry or cranberry (unsweetened) juice is BETTER than soda - and very good for you, as well (loaded with enzymes which aid digestion and build the good bacteria in the GI tract.)

Google it for more info, and find someone local to share a culture with you.

Giving up those cookies though.....OH, that is a tough one.  I'm hoping home made with real butter and no preservatives is at least, not quite as bad as the store ones......(I can sneak in good nuts and stuff, too.)

Wouldn't anything that feeds any cell in your body also feed a cancer cell?

Makes sense to me  : )

When I read a couple years back that Red Clover is a cancer cure, and preventive, I have had it in our house for tea ever since.  I'd like to just eat and live on stuff that cancer seems to NOT thrive on.

Cuttings ones carbs (simple and complex) down to a bare minimum will eliminate all types of yeast infections and bacteria and will generally improve the health overall.

You hit the nail on the head with that one, being self employed, I put in serious hours, dawn to dusk would be a short day, :)  Exercise does have a tendacy to trump poor eating habits, perhaps not fully, but all too often I see people with health issues and I look to their daily lives, where they are stuck behind a monitor, sitting at a desk, doing very little physical activity and regardless of how they eat, they get sick more often then those that do alot of physical labor and/or workout alot.

I look to my relatives at my age, they were all pudgy by then, and it's a good comparison, since I carry their same genes, yet I do not sit in front of the tube every single evening, I'm usually out there doing stuff, mainly in the shop, but I'm on my feet, not on the couch.  Along weight, what I tend to tell people is if they can maintain one specific weight and do it consistantly, all they have to do is raise their metabolism a bit through exercise, keeping in mind their past eating patterns and duplicating it.  It makes logical sense, your calorie intake remains the same, yet your body is going to now burn off more calories because you made a simple change in your life style patterns.

So too little oxygen changes regular cells into cancer cells (This would seem to indicate you sholudn't live at higher elevations), but too little oxygen would also slow the growth of the cancer cells, a good thing.  So it's sort of a catch 22, and not something many of us have much control over.

I have been reading lately that excess body fat is a leading risk factor for developing certain types of cancer and eating loads of fresh fruits and vegetables has some positive effects.

I agree with you that a simpler diet consisting of alot of fresh fruit and vegetables is benificial, not only just for cancer, but for all health reasons.  Eating meat daily used to be only for the rich, now, it's the staple, 3 times a day.

No, living at high altitudes does not cause a lack of oxygen in the body.

Low oxygen, generally or at a specific site, can be caused by many things.  Lack of exercise, dehydration, low iron, low blood flow in scar tissue, inflammation,  and so on.
