I’ve always understood that processed sugar feeds on cancer cells, and can be a contributing factor to the growth of cancer. I’ve read that, I’ve heard it, I believe it. Sugar weakens the immune system, so eliminating sugar is one of the first things I often recommend to most or all of my patients. Since chiropractic care influences the immune system, I work to encourage all my patients to be as healthy as they can be.
Just recently, I saw this article online that stated:
“processed sugar is one of the primary driving forces behind the growth and spread of cancer tumors. The results (from a study) were so conclusive, in fact, that future cancer screening may rely on scanning the body for accumulated sugar for signs of the disease. The University College London (UCL) in the U.K. made this discovery after experimenting with a new cancer detection method that involves utilizing a unique form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The scientists sensitized a MRI scanner to look specifically for glucose in the body, and it revealed that cancer tumors – which have been shown to feed off sugar – light up brightly as they contain high amounts of sugar.”
