I was reading about that the other day.
So glad were finally being exposed to the truth on the dangers of sugar!!

Ideas change very slowly here in France, and as I have to constantly put up with people lecturing me because I eat high fat and low carb, I keep these sorts of studies on hand. I also get my blood tested regularly and keep the latest results in my purse to prove my perfect health - plus the tests before I cut out sugar and started high fat. My cholestrol levels went down drastically after that!

So sick of people telling me sugar is fine and needed for energy, while fat makes you sick!


The sugar industry has made fools of us for too long a time.

I have some solid nodules on my thyroid and wonder if this way of eating might help shrink them. It would be great if that's the case.


You should also try iodine as a regular supplement. It will replace other toxic heavy metals that accumulate in the thyroid.

if this means subbing more fruits ...into your diet ...


theres alot of sugar in fruits.....

No, in the US, most sugar additive is corn syrup, not cane sugar.


I was replying to the comment that raw (unprocessed ) sugar is brown, not white. I assume he was talking about granulated sugar.... because dark corn syrup is not raw at all, it has additives like molasses for the color.


Oh, I misunderstood. Happens when I post early morning.

White sugar has been put through a bleaching process, but it's still cane sugar same as turbinado or brown sugar.

Thing is that most of the sugar you find in foods in the US is not the sugar you find on shelves unless you cook it yourself, it will be corn syrup.

Scientists reveal the relationship between sugar, cancer
www.sciencedaily.com...




A nine-year joint research project...led to a crucial breakthrough in cancer research. Scientists have clarified how the Warburg effect, a phenomenon in which cancer cells rapidly break down sugars, stimulates tumor growth. This discovery provides evidence for a positive correlation between sugar and cancer, which may have far-reaching impacts on tailor-made diets for cancer patients.

This project was started in 2008...Its main focus was the Warburg effect, or the observation that tumors convert significantly higher amounts of sugar into lactate compared to healthy tissues. As one of the most prominent features of cancer cells, this phenomenon has been extensively studied and even used to detect brain tumors, among other applications.

Sugar awakens cancer cells

"Our research reveals how the hyperactive sugar consumption of cancerous cells leads to a vicious cycle of continued stimulation of cancer development and growth. Thus, it is able to explain the correlation between the strength of the Warburg effect and tumor aggressiveness.

Yeast as an advantageous model organism

Yeast cell research was essential to the discovery, as these cells contain the same 'Ras' proteins commonly found in tumor cells, which can cause cancer in mutated form. Using yeast as a model organism, the research team examined the connection between Ras activity and the highly active sugar metabolism in yeast.

"We observed in yeast that sugar degradation is linked via the intermediate fructose 1,6-biophosphate to the activation of Ras proteins, which stimulate the multiplication of both yeast and cancer cells.

"The main advantage of using yeast was that our research was not affected by the additional regulatory mechanisms of mammalian cells, which conceal crucial underlying processes."




How sugar can increase risk of cancer...video below:


I have studied cancer here and there and there always has been some sort of pattern or relationship existing between sugar, oxygen and cancer. Even all the alternative cancer treatments call out to you to eliminate sugar from the diet. Now whether this is to counter the Warburg effect or not, the implications of finding this relationship to cancer is a very important one nevertheless.

I am glad that this lengthy research is finding what aides in tumor growths and of course you will never hear this research make the MSN.

Hopefully this will add to more evidence to help us understand how cancer develops or spreads in humans. Oh. and if this means subbing more fruits and veggies into your diet instead of cookies and pop then so be it! (which I already abstain from a lot of non healthy sugars anyways)



S&F for you. Awesome thread! I was thinking of making one myself about sugar.

I gave up sugar about three years ago in everything from tea to cereal and so on.

I am thinner, healthier and feel much better for it.

Excellent topic. I've been on a keto diet for six months now. Everything from cholesterol, blood pressure, anxiety and fatigue have completely resolved themselves. My mind is sharp. I'm never hungry, and never tired. Sugar causes so many problems.

I know... it's hard not to sound a bit fanatic on this subject once youve experienced the difference, huh?

I've been back and forth between keto for a while, then falling out of it, then going back, and really analyzed the difference not only in how I feel, but in my blood work ups.

I've never much liked candy, but for a while I was in a job where people would bring bags of candy for everyone in the office every afternoon. At first I never touched it, but with time, I started picking one up here and there to taste, and before I knew it I couldn't stop. I started craving sugar all the time! I was hungry all the time, my energy levels went berzerk, and I started having troubles with memory and concentration.

It was hard to get back off that habit and go back to keto, but the difference is astonishing.

By the time it gets into your bloodstream it's all glucose.


While it's a monumental finding for the research team, it's not a medical breakthrough. It also doesn't prove that eating a low-sugar diet could change a cancer diagnosis.

"The findings are not sufficient to identify the primary cause of the Warburg effect," Thevelein said in a release. "Further research is needed to find out whether this primary cause is also conserved in yeast cells."

@MOD: OK, continuing here!



No. Just the ones that are alive.


Please no rhetoric Phage. The question is clear and honest. We are speaking of living cell here, no one speaking of raising the dead! Unless you want to evade the question, please answer.

So you are positively sure 100% that ALL living cells in human body have metabolism dependant on glucose as fuel source?

S&F for the info to those who may need it.

But... as a whole, ghis is old news. Sugar and dairy both act as food for cancer cells, and science has known that for a good while now.

Normal fasting blood sugar is between 70 - 100. Post meal, normal blood sugar can go up to 140.

When I'm in glycolysis, my post meal reading is usually around 100. In ketosis, my highest reading was 86.

I'm not diabetic, so I don't check daily, or log my readings. I just did it initially to get an idea of how ketosis was affecting me. I think the results are significant.

Was asking if you were doing ketone blood control.

Glucose 100mg/dl (5.6mmol/L) mean vs. 86mg/dl (4.8mmol/L) max. in ketosis show that ketosis is usefull to reduce blood level of glucose. Results of our experiments here showed same trend.

Since you have not updated your stance on your affirmation that all living cells in human body REQUIRE glucose as metabolic fuel, I will repost my previous advice:


Phage, you're terrific in many science matter and your logic often very sound, but when it come to biochemistry you shall watch your steps.

Thank you for providing the opportunity for me to correct myself. I implied that all cells require glucose. That is incorrect. However, it is a fact that we cannot survive without sugar.

I hope you will forgive me of not being too specific and give personal details here, with things like Utah Data Center...

Let say I have done many things in life and the subject we are talking about is very familiar, both theory and in practice for quite some times.

I may have couples of advices is you experiment with ketogenic diet and think they are not off topic in such thread, if you are interested.

I'm happy to see that you are someone putting correctness above self!

Now, in interest of the thread topic, can you tell us at least two cells type in human body (the two most importants) that have obligate requirement for glucose and explain the reason (very interesting)?
