As a family physician, cancer seems rampant in my clinic lately.
Cancer comes in waves and almost seems like it follows infectious patterns, though that may be a stretch. One thing I know is true, nutrition plays a huge role in the ability to fight cancer. Proper Nutrition is huge when one considers every repair and defense mechanism in our body comes from the foods when ingest.
I’ve always taught my cancer patients that sugar feeds cancer. Lot’s of research indicates that high consumption of sugar (especially processed sugar, starches, sweets, sodas, alcohols etc.) suppresses immune function, raises insulin, and retards response to infection or abnormal cell growth. In my medical opinion eating carbohydrates causes cancer….especially in excess over years.
I consistently recommend my cancer patients to eliminate processed sugar from their diets. Fruit is the sweetest thing I recommend, and even that should be limited to 2-3 to 1 (Veggies to fruit). No fruit Juice.
The following article reinforces my point.
