Cancer is characterized by the rapid creation of abnormal cells that grow beyond their usual boundaries. These cancer cells can invade the body and spread to other organs. The most common cancers are lung, breast, colorectal, prostate, skin, and stomach cancer.
So, what really fuels cancer cells to mutate and then spread uncontrollably throughout the body? Here are some of its main sources.
Sugar is the “white death” and “cancer’s favorite food”. They really love sugar. Since they grow quickly, multiplying at a fast rate, they need a lot of energy. This only means that a lot of glucose is needed. Researchers from the University of Melbourne, Australia have found a strong correlation between sugary soft drinks and 11 different kinds of cancer, including colorectal, pancreatic, liver, and kidney.
Aside from sugar, cancer cells also need a lot of nutrients such as fats and amino acids.
Processed Dairy Products
Some people just love to eat cheese and drink milk. In a research published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, researchers have found that high consumption of processed dairy products, like milk and cheese increases one’s risk of prostate cancer.
Eating processed meat increases our risk of bowel and stomach cancer. According to World Health Organization, processed meats including ham, bacon, and salami are classified as a Group 1 carcinogen (known to cause cancer) which means that there’s strong evidence that processed meats cause cancer. These foods become carcinogenic due to the chemicals present it them such as antibiotics, nitrite and nitrate, haem, and N-nitroso chemicals.
Moreover, a meat-based lifestyle causes our body to create much more acid to break down, thus turning the body acidic and more prone to various diseases.
Artificial sweeteners are just one type of regular table sugar (sucrose) substitute. These synthetic sugar substitutes are known as intense sweeteners because they are many times sweeter than sugar. They are widely used in processed foods such as soft drinks, baked goods, canned foods, candies, and dairy products.
This lab-made fake sugar only causes weight gain, diabetes, and cancer. Some of the known artificial sweeteners are aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, and sucralose. They feed the cancer cells enabling them to mutate, multiply uncontrollably, and take over the body.
This method of treating cancer uses powerful drugs that kill dividing cancer cells and prevent them from growing. Unfortunately, it can also destroy fast-growing healthy cells such as those in the gastrointestinal tract and bone marrow as well as heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver. Due to this, chemotherapy simply makes a patient’s battle nearly impossible to win.
