Sugar Stimulates Cancer Growth
« on: October 27, 2017, 03:20:40 pm »
Studies have shown that some foods increase the risk of developing cancer. Now, new study findings published in Nature Communications suggest that there’s a link between sugar and tumor growth.

For the nine-year study, researchers from Belgium looked to determine the correlation between “the strength of the Warburg effect and tumor aggressiveness.” The Warburg effect refers to the process by which cancer cells produce energy via the fermentation of glucose, which leads to tumor growth. For their experiment, scientists used yeast cells, since their fermentation process is similar to that of cells.

Findings revealed that sugar not only causes tumors to grow but also makes cells multiply faster. The sugar also produces more Ras proteins, known to be the most common cancer-causing genes, which help fuel aggressive tumors.
