So if a study was done that found that cancer cells grow faster in people who eat 2000 calories a day and are well-nourished, when compared to people that only eat 500 calories a day and are malnourished, does that mean we should all start eating 500 calories a day and become malnourished because cancer cells won't grow as fast? I think you are drawing conclusions that aren't in the study.

We knew that it was bad for us, however now we know that it fuels cancer, which can explain the extremely high cancer rates in the American public.
Tumor cells thrive on sugar but they used the fructose to proliferate. "Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different," Heaney's team wrote.
If the difference is that large, their choice of words aren't communicating it that well. Thrive is a pretty strong word.
Thrive: to grow vigorously
Proliferate: to grow by rapid production of new parts, cells, buds, or offspring
How great is hot roasted corn on the cob with real butter and sea salt?

How does the modified product 'Splenda' fit into this then..?
Would it have the same effect ?
I used to work for J&J who own McNeil foods, the guys who sell Splenda and from memory (i was in medical devices) they have 'altered' the moelecular structure of sugar so that the body doesn't recognise it as a sugar..
Made by replacing three hydroxyl groups with chlorine. The resulting molecule is not recognized as sugar by the body and as such, is not digested. Some refer to Sucralose as Chlorinated Sugar. Sucralose does not occur in nature.

I'm beginning to think that corn is something to be avoided possibly altogether.
This is also what I am now thinking, see this:
They are destroying my lovely foods, I used to love boiling Corn and then spreading tamarind chutney all of over.
Apparently it's time to say bye bye to Corn, because not only what this thead is about but also because most Corns now are genetically engineered.
