A recent article spoke of a man who was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer. The man’s wife wanted to discuss his nutritional needs with his doctor, but the oncologist cut her off. He told her, “Your husband should eat whatever he wants to eat to keep his weight up.”
This statement not only highlights a lack of understanding of nutrition, it also underscores the fact that many doctors are ignorant of advancements in their own field. Because there’s one thing you definitely do NOT want to eat if you have or want to prevent cancerr. And that’s sugar.
In 1931, German scientist Otto Warburg, Ph.D., won his first of two Nobel Prizes. Dr. Warburg discovered that cancer cells require glucose (sugar) as fuel. All cells do, but cancer cells consume 4 to 5 times more glucose than normal cells. In other words, sugar feeds cancer.
So if you want to treat or prevent cancer, nutrition does matter. Cut out the sugar and refined carbohydrates. (Carbs are converted to glucose in your body.)
