Anthony Clavien remove refined sugar from diet to fight cancerFor most, it’s not a secret that a healthy diet is a good idea during the fight against cancer. It’s generally well known that quitting smoking and consuming alcohol are also helpful—but reducing sugar from your diet to beat cancer is just now starting to gain recognition as part of a comprehensive approach to fighting cancer.  Through drastically limiting sugar from your diet, not only will you help detox your body of cancer cells, but also fight against other chronic diseases like celiac and obesity.

Sugar is intended to provide energy and “feed” your body to help your vital organs function properly. Unfortunately, sugar feeds cancer cells as well, with cancer cells using sugar more efficiently, and in greater quantities than healthy cells. Fructose found in soda and other processed sweets was found to feed cancer cells even more than sugar’s natural form, glucose. Researchers at David Geffen School of Medicine from the University of California “fed” glucose and fructose to pancreatic cancer cells in lab dishes and found that although the cells thrived on glucose, they used fructose to divide and increase proliferation. In contrast, researchers strongly suggested that by limiting the intake of refined fructose, that the change may disrupt cancer growth.

Eliminating refined sugar from your diet is one way to stay healthy and help fight the disease as much as possible. Sugar takes many names, hiding between labels such as fructose, glucose, lactose, maltose, mannitol, sucrose and any word with “syrup” attached.  Learn to read food labels and become aware of where refined sugar hides in your diet. Cut out all of the sugary foods, from breakfast cereals to doughnuts to baked beans and even refined carbohydrates like pasta, white rice and even sugar-laden “smoothies” too.

Sticking to a detox diet where you prepare the food yourself can help prevent unwanted ingredients from sneaking into your meal. By limiting sugar to natural sources such as in fruit or figs, you can satisfy your sweet tooth in moderation, while providing the best fight against cancer.
