Research continues to unravel how our modern food harms our bodies and deteriorates our health. Despite how good it tastes, sugar has risen to the top as one of the leading causes of diseases.
A study by the Credit Suisse Research Institute concluded 40 percent of US health care expenditures are for diseases connected to the excess intake of sugar. The US spends $1 trillion each year to combat the adverse effects. Sugar and obesity have been directly linked to increased cancer risk. Researchers associated obesity to 500,000 cancer cases worldwide each year, so the evidence is growing exponentially.
How do sugar and obesity cause cancer?
Obesity arises from the over-consumption of refined fructose and sugar. The condition leads to chronic inflammation and an increased production of specific hormones like estrogen, which causes breast cancer.
Research from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center shows refined sugar increases the risk of breast cancer, but also raises the chances of tumors spreading to other organs. Refined fructose in high-fructose syrup is the primary culprit for breast tumors and metastasis. Since most processed foods and beverages contain high-fructose corn syrup, the public is being overwhelmed by it … the leading culprit in sugar-related diseases.
If you want to avoid cancer, it might be time to limit your sugary intake.
The spread of cancer is frightening, but the most efficient way to prevent cancer is to stay away from the cause. Without refined sugar, cancer cells will not thrive. Cancer’s food sources are excessive protein and sugar, so it’s best to monitor what you eat.
Cancer cells don’t have the ability to absorb fats or carbs for energy, so they survive on sugar. The best way to avoid it is to switch to whole and real foods. With natural ingredients, you get more nutritional value and decrease your chances of diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
You could opt for sugar alternatives such as stevia or Luo Han Guo, a sweet fruit used as a sugar substitute. Adding fresh fruits and spices like cinnamon to your diet will also aid your effort to lower sugar intake.
Make sure you reduce non-fiber carbs and replace them with massive amounts of fresh, organic vegetables and good fat. These nutrients include avocados, nuts, seeds, and raw cacao nibs.
It’s essential to get plenty of exercise to get your body in shape and improve mitochondrial biogenesis which is essential to fighting cancer. Another thing you can do is fast for three hours before bedtime to optimize your vitamin D intake.
Avoid cancer-causing chemicals such as BPA, phthalates, and other xenoestrogens. It’s important you maintain a healthy weight, limit your protein intake and avoid drinking too much alcohol.
Start living healthy by taking the first step; avoid sugar!
It could be the beginning of a long and healthy life. It’s up to you!
