Dear Health Conscious Reader,
The other night, my son Dylan and I were in line at the grocery checkout, and I couldn’t help but notice the woman in front of me.
As she unloaded potato chips, pastries, waffles, and pasta onto the conveyor belt, I wondered if she understood the risks she was taking. If she knew empty carbs were linked to breast cancer would she still buy them?
Sugar feeds cancer cells … and makes them grow like wildfire. Cancer loves sugar.
And carbs turn into sugar in your body.
A 2004 study in Cancer Epidemiology followed the eating habits of a large group of women in Mexico. The risk of breast cancer was found to be 220% higher in the women who ate the largest amounts of carbohydrates compared to the women who ate the least carbs.1
And just a few weeks ago, a new study confirmed it.
Researchers in Stockholm analyzed data from women who completed “food frequency” questionnaires in the late 1980s. They discovered that women who ate high glycemic load foods were more likely to develop breast cancer.
They also found that carbohydrate intake, glycemic index and glycemic load were all associated with a specific estrogen receptor type of tumor.2
And it’s not just women who need to be concerned. There have also been links to carbohydrate consumption, especially high glycemic load foods, and colorectal cancer among men.3
The evidence that refined, processed, high glycemic foods are bad for you is overwhelming. And when it comes to cancer, sugar is the worst.
So when you go to the store, make sure to pass up on the sugar. Plus, you’ll want to avoid …
- Grains, including corn
- Potatoes and other white foods, like white rice, sugar and salt.
- Processed foods
- Drinks and foods that contain high fructose corn syrup
Also, educate yourself about preventing and treating cancer. If you learned something in this article, then there’s a lot more you can learn by reading Tanya Pierce’s book, “Outsmart Your Cancer.”
In it, she reveals the shocking failure of chemotherapy, and shares 21 alternative cancer treatments – including more than 9 key secrets to beating cancer with what’s probably the easiest, most powerful alternative cancer cure on the planet.
The information in Tanya’s book has helped thousands of people battle and overcome cancer.
To Your Good Health,
