Cancer is one of the most common diseases with which doctors are still battling, since there is not definite cure. But what you can do to help the process of battling it, which in itself is very difficult, is to deny it its favorite food: sugar.
Dr. Otto Wartburg was the first in the 1920s to point out the relationship between sugar and the growth of cancer. He concluded that it is a mitochondrial dysfunction that allows the development of cancer, which doesn’t occur if the body doesn’t have to process sugar.
Even if we take that as a given, since Wartburg’s time, the evolution of food industry has shown that trying to get sugar out of one’s life is not as simple as it sounds: even if you cut off on the cakes and the sweets and the candies, in Western countries most of the food we consume is processed and, even if we don’t know it, it contains quite a lot of sugar.
This video is quite shocking in its explanation on where is sugar hiding: pretty much everywhere!
