(My Blog Is based on German Otto Warburg, Ph.D., the 1931 Nobel Prize winner for his work on cancer, was the first to discover that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells.)

According to a new research study, refined sugar is far more addictive than cocaine — one of the most addictive and harmful substances currently known. An astonishing 94 percent of rats, who were allowed to choose mutually-exclusively between sugar water and cocaine, chose sugar. Even rats who were addicted to cocaine quickly switched their preference to sugar, once it was offered as a choice. The rats were also more willing to work for sugar than for cocaine. The researchers speculate that the sweet receptors (two protein receptors located on the tongue), which evolved in ancestral times when the diet was very low in sugar, have not adapted to modern times’ high-sugar consumption. Therefore, the abnormally high stimulation of these receptors by our sugar-rich diets generates excessive reward signals in the brain, which have the potential to override normal self-control mechanisms, and thus lead to addiction. Additionally, their research found that there’s also a cross-tolerance and a cross-dependence between sugars and addictive drugs. As an example, animals with a long history of sugar consumption actually became tolerant (desensitized) to the analgesic effects of morphine.

Of the over 4 million cancer patients being treated in the U.S. today, almost none are offered any scientifically guided nutrition therapy other than being told to “just eat good foods.” Many cancer patients would have a major improvement in their conditions if they controlled the supply of cancer’s preferred fuel: GLUCOSE. By slowing the cancer’s growth, patients make it possible for their immune systems to catch up to the disease. Controlling one’s blood-glucose levels through diet, exercise, supplements, and prescription drugs – when necessary – can be one of the most crucial components to a cancer treatment program. There is even a saying that “Sugar feeds cancer”.

The essence of his Nobel thesis was this: malignant tumors frequently exhibit an increase in “anaerobic glycolysis” – a process whereby glucose is used by cancer cells as a fuel with lactic acid as an anaerobic by-product – compared to normal tissues. Normal cells on the other hand function through “aerobic glycolysis” and use oxygen instead of sugar for energy production. The large amount of lactic acid produced by this fermentation of glucose from the cancer cells is then transported to the liver. This conversion of glucose to lactate creates a lower, more acidic PH in cancerous tissues as well as overall physical fatigue from lactic acid build-up. Therefore, larger tumors tend to exhibit a more acidic PH. Hence, cancer therapies should attempt to regulate blood-glucose levels through diet, supplements, exercise, and stress reduction. Since cancer cells derive most of their energy from anaerobic glycolysis, the goal is not to eliminate sugars or carbohydrates entirely from the diet but rather to control what you eat to help starve the cancer cells and boost immune function.

Otto Warburg showed that cancer cells use sugar for energy and do not respire the normal way like healthy cells. This fact is the basis of the high-tech diagnostic tool known as positron emission tomography (PET). PET scans are x-rays that reveal areas of heightened glucose metabolism in the body, which indicate the presence of cancer. PET scans are used today to detect cancer, its spread in the body, the effectiveness of treatment etc. Can you make the connection? The scanning tool checks for heightened sugar metabolism which should raise a few eyebrows, if heightened sugar metabolism which indicates cancer in a body part, maybe sugar is the problem? But again, the medical mafia is not looking for a cure, they are busy making billions treating the symptoms of an acidic, sugar filled, and oxygen depleted body.

It certainly is suspicious that, like the other diseases I have mentioned, the incidence of cancer increased tremendously at the same time as sugar consumption went sky-high. Again and again you can see the connection. Cancer, as well as most other diseases, thrive in a toxic, acidic, oxygen-less environment. Fast food, meat, GMO, additives, preservatives, sugar, and sodas all create such an environment. The only question is which disease will you get first? If you want to avoid obesity, diabetes, liver dysfunction, increased cholesterol levels, autoimmune disease, cancer, and countless other diseases then stop drinking sodas and anything with high fructose corn syrup or high sugar content. This is the easiest and simplest way to begin weight loss and avoid disease. Thousands of people took the change, have you?

Is brown sugar healthier? Nope. Brown sugar, cane sugar, sugar crystals are the same bad sugar you should avoid at all costs. I also get questions regarding the sugar in fruits and vegetables. The difference between isolated sugar (regular sugar) and sugar found in all other foods is the sugar that’s in foods is bound to a myriad of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and fiber, which ensure absolute perfect absorption and metabolism. Free sugar is nutrition less and gets converted to fat and leads to diabetes, not to mention that table sugar is not found in nature and is toxic to our bodies.
