How to Feed Cancer

I’m sure you don’t want to know how to feed cancer, but you are probably already doing so, without knowing it.

Why do I say this?

Because most people eat about 150 pounds of sugar every year without paying any heed to the well-known fact that cancer feeds on sugar!

So many food substances have added sugar that we don’t even notice it from day to day.

Just look at the ingredients on the labels of ketchup, mayonnaise, soft drinks, and just about any other processed food package and you will find that sugar is one of the main ingredients.

Sugar“Sugar is a toxin. It fuels diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer. At the current dose we consume, more than 150 pounds per person every year, sugar and its derivatives kill more people than cocaine, heroin, or any other controlled substance around.

One report aptly describes sugar as ‘candy for cancer cells.’ It accelerates aging and inflammation in the body and subsequently fuels tumor growth. It is now clear that if you lower your sugar intake, you reduce your odds of developing cancer.”

—Tom Rath from Eat Move Sleep: How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes

When I had my second bout of muscle invasive bladder cancer two years ago, one of the first things I did was to eliminate sugar from my diet as much as possible.

When my wife made her wonderful tasting chocolate chip cookies, I found myself able to resist trying even one.

If I can resist her cookies, I’m sure you can learn to reduce your sugar intake by a significant amount.

Are you willing to try?
