Even though it is spoken and written a lot about the harmfulness of these ingredients, many people still consume them…
Sugar significantly contributes to the development of cancer cells, and yet a lot of people consume it constantly.
Scientists claim that there is one ingredient in several types of foods that contributes to the death of 35 million people around the world each year. According to the scientists sugar causes many health issues such as cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, metabolic syndrome, hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, etc.
According to an institute that studies cancer, sugar is the major supporter for the tumor development. The regular cells in the body use significantly less sugar than the tumor cells. According to studies, people who have higher glucose level, have more possibilities to develop cancer.
It is a fact that the cells in our bodies need energy that comes from a form of sugar called glucose. The cancer cells can survive with simple carbohydrates, including the refined sugars. Glycolysis is the process when glucose is transformed into pyruvic acid.
The cancer cells are able to convert glucose into energy. They don’t need oxygen for this unlike the other cells in the body. Anaerobic glycolysis is a process of converting glucose into energy without oxygen, and the waste materials are similar to lactic acid.
This type of lactic acid is processed in the liver, and the wast is glucose which returns to the cancer cells and they use it as food. This process repeats itself and it encourages the growth and development of the tumor.
The experts point out that refined sugars are connected to cancer for 2 reasons:
1. They can cause cancer.
2. They are the best food for the cancer cells when they appear in the body.
In order to protect your health, think about how much sugar you are consuming, and try to reduce the intake of processed sugars. One thing is clear – sugar does not influence your health positively.
