The “C” Word

It’s a scary word, but it’s unfortunately very real.

Cancer is a scary disease that unfortunately effects most people living in this country. In fact, there are currently 12.5 million Americans with cancer (cite).

The strange thing is that Cancer isn’t something that was around when my grandmother was a child. However, now it seems that many of her closest friends and family members get plagued with this hideous disease.  Despite the millions of dollars given yearly for a cure to be found, non has yet been.

I remember reading this once and it has ever since stuck in my mind.



I wish today’s post was me informing you about the cure for cancer, or about someone else who found the cure for cancer… but it’s not. However I do want to (with much caution because I am not a doctor and no one but your doctor should be informing you about the treatment of your cancer) inform you about some interesting research that recently surfaced. This science is suggestion that sugar feeds cancer cells.

You see, cancer cells are retarded (not in a derogatory way) cells. In fact, we all have retarded cells within our body. The cells generally speaking get taken care of by our bodies and killed off. This is due to the fact that our body knows what it can and cannot work with in terms of cells on a functional level. Cancer cells, however, are retarded cells that for what everreason were not discarded from our bodies. The result is the reproduction of these retarded cells over and over to a point in which a tumor of some sort is formed and possibly even transportation of these cancer cells to other parts of the body.

Remember when we talked here about cells needing energy. The need energy to do all sorts of things including reproduce more cells…

Old school science pop-quiz question: what is meiosis and how is it different from mitosis?

So how then do these cancerous cells bypass our bodies natural process of killing off defective cells as well as get nutrition (a.k.a. energy) so that they can re-produce?

Great question!!!!

Recent science says that the excess supply of sugar within a human body can feed cancer or defective cells in a special way which allows them to reproduce as fast rates.

Ok, ok…. now you and I both know that if it was this simple, then cancer would no longer be around.

Like all things nutrition, there is no special cure, magic potion or promising pill…. however there is research. Also, we don’t live in a perfect world which translated to sugar is in everything, money doesn’t come easy, time doesn’t either and sugar taste soooooooooooooooo good!

I wish I could offer all of you an equation of what to eat, when to eat it and how to eat it and then we could all go on in perfect health. In my opinion it would be a fabulous world if one diet and only one diet worked for EVERYONE! I can’t though, this isn’t realistic and it will never happen…  and trust me, this bothers me more than the average person because numbers (math) make(s) me oh so happy!

So here is what I am going to do….

First, I’ll ask you to click on this link and invite all of your friends to click on it too so that you can go back and re-read what we have discussed thus far concerning sugar.

Second, I am going to tip-toe around the topic of cancer because it is so real, so scary and I don’t want to offend anyone who is struggling with it or helping out those who are struggling with it.

Third, I am going to point you into the direction of some very interesting reading about sugar and cancer, because well…. I am not a doctor, but these people are and they sound so much more eloquent than I do 🙂

Finally, I am going to speak from the bottom of my heart and tell you that I honestly and completely believe that sugar only effects your health in a negative way. So as we continue on with this sugar series, please attempt to make one little change. When that sugar change has occurred, make another, and with time continue. The result will be continued good health!

  1. This is an interesting post to me because I am a cancer survivor and have went through 3 separate treatments: 2 chemotherapies and 1 surgery.
    This is my third cancer remission and the important thing to remember is that cancer is not curable. Instead it is treated and put “under control”.

    Anyway love reading that sugar is so important that it can help or hurt the treatment of sugar and I will definitely keep this in mind.

    • Thank you so much for being bold and sharing with us your personal struggles. Please let me know of anything that I personal can do to help you in your remission. It is so wonderful to hear that you are in fact in remission and that you are such a fanominal fighter. I feel honored to have you here reading my blog and look forward to hearing more of your in put about these topics.

      • Wow!!!! I feel honored that you feel honored. You make me feel special and I’m definitely going to continue to read and post comments. Let me know if I can do anything for you to help you with your blog. I will definitely do my part and spread the word to increase your Web traffic.
        Have a blessed day dear 🙂

  2. @Donna wow, what a testament to cancer, thank you for sharing that. Praying youll never have to go through another treatment again.

    @Leah this is a great and insightful article. I read some of the links you provided and there is so much to cancer that an average person like me doesn’t know or think about. Thank you for sharing that!

  3. I do wish cancer would get cancer and die. I lost my dad to it and knowing that sugar may have not helped makes me even more conscious to not eat it. Thank you Leah.
