Eating Sugar Makes Cancer Cells Multiply, Study Finds

This isn’t really great news for those of us who enjoy putting away half a cake on their birthday, or tearing through four boxes of Thin Mints the day our Girl Scout Cookies arrive. According to Belgian scientists, sugar consumption increases your cancer risk and helps cancer multiply. And why would the Belgians lie about this? It’s not like they’d purposely sabotage their lucrative chocolate and waffle industries.

The nine-year cancer research study, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, came to this conclusion by observing yeast cells, according to Reader’s Digest.

Their nine-year study, recently published in the journal Nature Communications, observed yeast cells in the lab. Ultimately, they found that the yeast cells’ fermentation process (which mirrors that of cancer cells) actually causes them to multiply and expand.

Unlike non-cancerous cells, which use oxygen to convert glucose into energy for the body, cancer cells get their energy from fermenting sugar—a phenomenon called the “Warburg effect.” The Belgian study revealed that sugar “awakens” existing cancer cells, triggering a more rapid rate of tumor growth.

Apparently it’s a spare tumor, not a spare tire, that you have to worry about when you eat to much ice cream. Oh, but also, a spare tire as well. Sugar still makes you fat. So it’s important to cut it out of your diet for both weight loss and cancer loss.

There is good news too, however. The discovery that sugar intake may cause cancer means that new forms of cancer treatment could be developed as well.

Previous studies have found that cancer treatments might be able to exploit the cells’ sweet tooth with targeted therapies. While scientists still don’t understand why cancer cells behave like this, these results could help doctors develop new diet strategies for cancer patients going forward.

Once again, life proves that nothing fun is good for you. Not sugar. Not pool noodles. Not the beach. Definitely not alcohol. Nothing.

I thought this was already established as fact a while ago.
Sugars tend to uptake quicker and spike insulin faster, you shouldnt consume sugars on an empty stomach. If you eat a candy bar on an empty stomach, your insulin will spike in about 10 minutes, on a stomach that has food & water in it, the sugars will slowly enter the system requiring about 4 hours to process.

There are only THREE macro nutrients. Forget about all the nonsense everyone says about "good" and "bad" sources of carbs. Simple sugars tend to uptake quicker and spike insulin faster. There's zero difference in how the body processes honey than the way it does pancake syrup. And while there may be more nutrients in honey, it's a simple sugar syrup and it spikes blood sugar and insulin at the same rate as corn syrup. It's high glycemic.

The body recognizes Fat, Protein, Carbohydrate. That's it. It converts carbohydrates into glucose and glycogen. Utilizes protein for protein synthesis if required or for muscle mass maintenance... any unneeded protein gets converted into glucose through neoglucogenesis. Fats either get stored as fat or converted into energy through the production of ketones in the liver in the absence of carbohydrates.

Yes, it's more nuanced than that but that's basically it.

Maybe we need to end our terms of endearment like Sugar Plum, Cupcake, or Sweety Pie
to something more healthy like Sour Pus or Bitter Lips.

It was, but "studies" have lost their credibility so they have to present a study that is actually true so that the teevee addled masses will trust studies again.
