Just recently there has been some new information regarding sugar and cancer. It is a well known fact that cancer cells love sugar; they actually thrive on it. Hence, cancer cells show up so clearly on a CT scan, which includes putting a type of sugary solution in your body.
Therefore, I have always understood that we need to avoid all types of sugar, of course the kind in cookies, cakes, pies, candy, etc.; but also to avoid having too many fruits because of the sugar. This always puzzled me because I once heard of someone who cured her cancer by juicing only the purple grapes. Also carrot juice is high in sugar and beneficial for cancer patients.
Dr. Tony Jimenez, M.D., the Medical Director of the Hope 4 Cancer Institute in Tijuana, Mexico, along with a scientist from India who works with him at his clinic have discovered that fruit of any kind, as well as carrots and beets, does not feed cancer, in spite of the sugar they contain. This is because the fructose (one form of sugar) in these foods is a "left-spinning" molecule. That's what the lower-case "l" in front of the fructose means. Cancer feeds on "right-spinning" molecules of sugar -- glucose, sucrose, etc. Dr. Jimenez says that even honey, syrup and molasses that is unadulterated is quite healthy for cancer patients.
So this is good news for those of us who do like something sweet.
