Cancer cells have a massive dependence on sugar as a fuel source. The higher the blood sugar level, the higher the risk of cancer and every other disease. Are you still threatening your own health by eating too much sugar?
The Meaning Of Sugar
What do we mean by sugar? Sugar is white sugar: carbohydrates. And the biggest culprit of all is fructose corn syrup. Fructose corn syrup alone is destroying the health of the American people.
Are you reading labels? Fructose corn syrup is a base or filler in thousands of foods. It is a “sugar” that bypasses the pancreas, causing massive increases in insulin and creating an epidemic of obesity. Can’t we look out and see it?
Sugar causes high insulin levels that tell the body to store sugar as fat. It also tells the body not to release any stored fat. This makes it impossible to use our own stored body fat for energy. So excess sugar (carbohydrates, fructose corn syrup) in the diet not only makes us fat, but makes sure we stay fat.
High levels of insulin will cause major health problems. Think diabetes, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol (and other lipids), heart disease and kidney disease. Female breast cancer, infertility and neurodegeneration are all caused by excess sugar, resulting in high insulin levels.
Diets high in refined sugar cause the body to release more insulin, causing excess fat storage. Too much insulin caused by too much refined sugar is the key to the vast majority of chronic illness. In other words, sugar feeds cancer because cancer cells are massively dependent on sugar.
Time To Take Out Sugar
What can the individual do? I believe these are the answers:
1) Switch to a diet with as high a percentage of fresh vegetables as possible. Avoid most meats except chicken and fish. This is simple but proven beyond a doubt to not only arrest diseases like cancer and heart disease, but to actually reverse them. Please view the DVD “Forks Over Knives.” The answer is change of diet, but this is anathema to the drug cartel that owns conventional medicine in the United States. They have brainwashed us with the heresy that drugs replace food in the healing process.
2) Switch your sweetener to stevia. At one time, the Food and Drug Administration stopped stevia from coming into the United States. After that, it had to be sold as a “dietary supplement,” not as a sweetener. Of course, there are reasons for this, as we shall see.
Stevia can replace all the bad sugars that play havoc with insulin balance and blood glucose. Stevia’s most obvious and notable characteristic is its sweet taste. However, the sweet taste is not due to carbohydrate-based molecules, but to several non-caloric molecules called glycosides.
Individuals who cannot tolerate sugar or other sweeteners can use stevia. The first glycoside molecule was isolated from stevia in 1931 by two French chemists named Bridel and Lavieille. It’s called stevioside.
Other aspects of stevia are capturing people’s attention. The herb is sold in some South American countries to aid diabetics and hypoglycemics. Research has shown that a whole leaf concentrate has a regulating effect on the pancreas and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Therefore, stevia is useful to people with diabetes, hypoglycemia and Candidiasis.
Other traditional uses of stevia are: lowering elevated blood pressure (hypertension), acting as a digestive aid that reduces gas and stomach acidity, and reducing obesity. The herb acts as a general tonic that increases energy levels and mental acuity.
Stevia is a wonderful aid to weight loss and weight management because it contains no calories. In addition, research indicates that it significantly increases glucose tolerance and inhibits glucose absorption. People who ingest stevia daily often report a decrease in their desire for sweets and fatty foods. It may improve digestion and gastrointestinal function, soothe upset stomachs, and help speed recovery from minor illnesses.
Stevia inhibits the growth of some bacteria and infectious organisms, including those that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Many individuals using stevia have reported a lower incidence of colds and flu. Others who have used stevia as a mouthwash have experienced a significant decrease in gum disease.
All the health writers I know recommend stevia above all other sugars.
