Cancer Loves HFCS

Would you encourage cancer to bloom and spread in your body? Would you garden tumors, and even feed cancer its favorite food?

A new study has found that HFCS--- High-fructose corn syrup--- is cancer's favorite fast-growth food. This terrifying possibility seems to be the conclusion of yet another study, more damning than ever.

That is correct. UCLA researchers have concluded a cancer growth study and announced a shocking discovery--- that cancer cells love - in fact, prefer! - refined fructose.

In their study tests, pancreatic cancer cells gobbled up refined fructose, rapidly accelerating their growth rate in the test body.

Head researcher Dr. Anthony Heaney of UCLA's Jonsson Cancer Center, said, "These findings show that cancer cells readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation."

Published in the journal Cancer Research, the findings are even more condemning of HFCS--- the study destroys a widely-held belief in mainstream
medicine--- that all sugars are the same.

In fact, they are not, when cancer is involved. Cancer just loves HFCS.

Fructose directly causes cancer cells to reproduce and spread in a way that glucose does not. Tumor research in the study clearly proves this fact. There is a huge difference.

The team stated, "Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different."

So the study solidifies the fact that there is a major difference between high fructose corn syrup, a highly-refined sugar commonly used in processed American foods and beverages, and refined sugar cane. Both can lead to health problems, but high fructose corn syrup is worse in terms of cancer growth.

Dr Heaney added this: "I think this paper has a lot of public health implications. Hopefully, at the federal level there will be some effort to step back on the amount of high fructose corn syrup in our diets."

So here's the question yet again--- the same question we asked a few entries ago--- why hasn't the US Govt outlawed HFCS?

How much would health care costs be reduced? How much suffering would be eliminated?

If HFCS is illegal in Europe and Australia and elsewhere, why not in the USA?
