Studies are showing the link between refined sugar intake and cancer risk. All dietary carbohydrates are digested into sugars called glucose. Compared to natural sugars, the fructose found in fruits and honey, refined sugars and many carbohydrate starches cause in issue in the gut where an endotoxin is produced. The endotoxin destroys mitochondrial cell function which then results in cancer metabolism. This backs up the claim that cancer cells feed on sugar. But, now we know not all sugars, just the refined ones. These are the sugars that are added to foods. For example, candy, chocolate, ice cream, soft drinks, etc. A study published in 2014 showed that cancer patients that drank tow or more servings of sugar-sweetened soft drinks had a 67% chance of cancer recurrence and death compared to those who drank less than two servings per month. All cancer patients should avoid all refined sugars and only satisfy their sweet tooth with fruits and honey.
