Don't Feed The Troll: Cancer Feeds on Fructose

It's all over the news:  Research that has just very recently been published in the journal Cancer Research shows that cancer cells can spread faster if they are fed fructose.

What this means to you:  Your soda, and tons of other things you may eat on a daily basis, are loaded with food for cancer.  High fructose corn syrup is in bread and many other foods.  It's not just food for cancer, but Miracle Grow for cancer.

All sugars are *not* created equally.  Cancer cells fed both glucose and fructose have shown us this by responding differently in recent lab tests. Fructose Speeds Up Cancer Growth! 

This knowledge might help scientists to develop a drug to stop tumor cells from making use of fructose.
In the meantime, what can you do to help make sure you don't enable cancer to eat you alive?
Cut back on anything that contains the dreaded High Fructose Corn Syrup...

I don't know about you, but if *I* were to get any cancerous cells, I sure don't want to enable them to proliferate throughout my body even more rapidly. O_O
