9 year study shows how sugar stimulates cancerous tumor growth.


Researchers from universities in Belgium recently conducted a nine-year experiment, published in Nature Communications, that revealed how sugar stimulates the growth of tumors.
www.ajc.com...

Cells normally receive energy through aerobic respiration-this is from digested food turned into energy. This takes oxygen and carbon dioxide is released.
But cancerous cells get energy from fermented sugars, spurring tumor growth, this is called the Warburg Effect. Cancer cells favor the fermented sugar process over the respiration process.


They explained that healthy cells receive energy through aerobic respiration, a process that transforms digested food into energy molecules. To complete the process, oxygen is required so that carbon dioxide can be released.
Cancerous cells get energy from fermenting sugar, which causes tumor growth. This is called the Warburg effect.

For the study, they examined the correlation between “the strength of the Warburg effect and tumor aggressiveness” by observing the sugar fermentation of yeast, which is similar to that of cells. They both “share the unusual characteristic of favoring fermentation of sugar over respiration,” the study read.


And sugar also makes the tumors not only grow but multiply faster by producing cancer-causing genes. The research shows hyperactive sugar consumption leads to a vicious cycle of cancer development and growth.


The scientists not only confirmed that sugar causes tumors to grow, but that it also makes cells multiply faster. They believe the sugar produces more of the most common cancer-causing genes, also known as Ras proteins, fueling aggressive tumors.

“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. This link between sugar and cancer has sweeping consequences,” co-author Johan Thevelein said in a statement.


How much of this is known by food manufacturers? They are at this very minute jamming as much sugar as they can so we can eat the low fat foods that taste terrible with out it.
I think we will see tobacco style lawsuits against these companies, they know what their product does, but must keep the ball rolling.

Well then I guess we'll have to make Cannabis legal nation wide so anti-cancer drugs are affordable to the average person.

They are exactly correct. I've been Paleo, no carbs no sugar, for 4 years and feel fantastic. If you have a high risk of cancer in the family like I do, it makes sense to consider changing your diet.
Oh, and the weight just falls off like butter on warm corn. Be prepared to buy new cloths!!!

Energy molecules?

So, our blood stream carries fermenting sugars and so cancer?
Is that a fact? I don't think so.


Sugar is metabolized in your body both as a carbohydrate and as a fat. Once in your digestive tract, sugar hydrolyzes into fructose and glucose. Glucose starts out as a carbohydrate, but is quickly stored as a fat. Fructose is metabolized through your liver, and mostly converted to a fat.

Once glucose is in your digestive tract, a small portion is stored as glycogen in your muscles and liver. This is what our body draws on for it's short term energy needs. The remainder of the glucose, upwards of 80%, goes to the blood stream to avail itself to any and all cells in your body. Every cell requires glucose to survive, which is why our blood sugar levels are so important.

A very good way for people to get healthy. And it also can help diabetics reduce or eliminate drugs.

Not only does a high glucose level lead to the spread of cancer , may well be a leading cause .
Want to ask me how I know ?
This is not the time nor the place to banter words....
This thread is very personal to me and should be heeded by everyone.

Curtailing the amount of sugar is a great idea and sugary things should be kept as a once a week "special" treat, not every day.

Oh and stay the heck away from soda pop.

That's not what those who conducted this study say.

He was, however, careful to note that this research, while important, is one step in a much larger process - and that a breakthrough in research is not the same thing as a medical breakthrough.

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

A high glucose level indicates metabolic problems more than anything.

I can assure you that that is what specialists , oncologists , and the WHO has determined through worldwide studies.
Ask them... I did.
I am just an INFORMED person. I did get to speak to 2 specialists from the World Health Organization and other specialists from around the world in person. In a hospital bed in a major hospital .I was impressed that the world would take notice of Lil Ol Me.
Now , with that , I end this ....

There are quite a few studies that show this. It is not just sugar, anything containing glucose or fructose or some other oses can fuel the storm. Even bread, which is metabolized into glucose, can fuel cancer.

Just eat soup made with a cartilaginous bone with your sandwich or eat some gelatin for desert and it can help to negate the growth. Having some pineapple or a grapefruit containing proteinases once in a while helps to remove the slime that protects cancer cells from detection too.

But all in all, reducing sugar consumption for most people will help reduce risk. Some food chemistry also dampens p53 detection of cancer, that should be eaten in moderation and not every day..

The body does need some glucose, but it doesn't all have to be dietary glucose. In ketosis, the body uses ketones as a primary source of energy, and the little glucose that it does need can come from dietary proteins via gluconeogenesis. Of course, vegetables are a source of carbohydrates, but its almost negligible in comparison to grains, refined sugars, and fruit.

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. Unless you want to engage in endless rhetorical exchange and endless debate on the definition of wordings...

But I'm curious however, what exactly you mean by "We cannot live without sugar"?

Our cells cannot function without glucose. Glucose is the sugar which is in our bloodstream.

Was requesting precision like endogenous or exogenous, but the post by BELIEVERpriest made any other explanation redundant.

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.

Not true. Brain cells need glucose, but most other cells can live off of ketones once the body has moved from glycolysis (glucose dominant metabolism) to ketosis.


I've been in strict ketosis for over 6 months now. I'm not starving. In fact, I'm rarely hungry. My fasting blood sugar stays at 70, and rarely goes above 80 post meals. I have more energy than I've ever had. I'm gaining muscle mass, and my stamina has improved. If all cells needed glucose as you stated, this simply would not be possible.
