Cancer loves sugar and vise versa. (Archive in cancer.)

Cancer Loves Sugar

Every doctor learned back in medical school all about Otto Warburg's
discovery; a discovery of humongous proportions, because way back in
the fifties Otto discovered the main biochemical cause of cancer,
or what differentiates a cancer cell from a normal, healthy cell. So
big a discovery was this, that Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel

Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal
oxygen respiration of the body's cells by an anaerobic [i.e., oxygen-
deficient] cell respiration. -Dr. Otto Warburg

But what else does Warburg's discovery tell us. First off, it tells
us that cancer metabolizes much differently than normal cells.
Normal cells need oxygen. Cancer cells despise oxygen. In fact,
oxygen therapy is a favorite among many of the alternative clinics
we've researched.

Another thing this tells us is that cancer metabolizes through a
process of fermentation.

If you've ever made wine, you'll know that fermentation requires

The metabolism of cancer is approximately 8 times greater than the
metabolism of normal cells.

Okay, so here is what we can put together knowing the above: The
body is constantly overworked trying to feed this cancer. The cancer
is constantly on the verge starvation and thus constantly asking the
body to feed it. When the food supply is cut off, the cancer begins
to starve unless it can make the body produce sugar to feed itself.

The wasting syndrome, cachexia, is the body producing sugar from
proteins (you heard it right, not from carbohydrates or fats, but
from proteins) in a process called glycogenesis. This sugar feeds
the cancer. The body finally dies of starvation, trying to feed the

Now, knowing that one's cancer needs sugar, does it make sense to
feed it sugar? Does it make sense to have a high carbohydrate diet?

The reason Food Therapies even exist today (beyond the fact that they
work) is because someone once saw the connection between sugar and

There are many food therapies, but not a single one allows many foods
high in carbohydrates and not a single one allows sugars, BECAUSE

Why doesn't your physician tell you this? Hard to tell. Maybe your
doctor feels it is his job to cure your cancer, not yours.

Maybe because your doctor learned about Warburg, but never put the
rest together, never placed nutrition into the equation.

Maybe because your physician didn't study nutrition. Heck, as late as
1978, the AMA's official position (stated in courts of law) was that
nutrition had nothing to do with health or disease.

However, those who've paid attention to this sugar craving cancer
stuff have come up with some remarkable therapies for cancer.
Laetrile is just one. Hydrazine Sulfate, which stops the process of
glycogenesis in greater than 50% of all patients with cachexia is

Today, at the University of Minnesota,
they are experimenting with a chemotherapy delivered in
a "smartbomb." Here's the scoop: the drug is wrapped in a coating
that stays intact as it travels through the body, that is until it
reaches a location of no oxygen. When it reaches this "no oxygen"
location, the coating falls apart releasing the chemotherapy to
destroy the cancer, because the only place in your body where there
is no oxygen is the cancer site.

Then there are the food therapies: aimed at starving cancer. Knowing
what cancer loves, the patient avoids them. Cancers loves cooked
foods (this is a relatively recent finding) and cancer loves sugar.
If you hate your cancer, then starve it. (Note from Misty- further
validation for living foods! yea!)
