Don’t feed the cancer cells

A.k.a. it’s time to ditch the sugar! Sugars are the main source of energy for cells. Cancer cells are even more sugar addicted:

“Cancer cells are well known to display an enhanced sugar uptake and consumption. In fact, sugar transporters are deregulated in cancer cells so they incorporate higher amounts of sugar than normal cells.”

So here’s yet another reason to stay off carbs. Low-carb diet isn’t just for weight-management.

Remember, that sugar doesn’t mean just the white refined sugar. It covers also stuff like honey, brown sugar, agave nectar, sweet fruit and juices.

    Thanks for reminding, a great reason not to eat sugar. I can imagine how sugar provides a nasty platform for any bacteria, infections and other unwanted bugs. Brrrrr..

    Luolanainen, say no more! There are a ton of reasons to avoid this nasty (yet good tasting) devil.
