Americans love sugar more than just about any other food.
We consumed about 11 million metric tons of it last year. That’s 160 pounds per person.1 Children in the U.S. get about 32 teaspoons of it a day.2
It’s linked to a whole medical textbook of diseases… Insomnia, hair loss, obesity, allergies, insomnia, manic depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, and of course, diabetes.
Yet many people still consider it a benign treat.
But new research gives new urgency to the war on sugar. Scientists have uncovered perhaps sugar’s worst evil… It fuels the spread of cancer. Especially breast cancer.3
And removing it from your diet can actually reverse cancer growth.

Fox News reports that this herb is “…shown to effectively destroy prostate cancer cells.” And researcher Dr. Jeremy Johnson confirms that a compound found in the plant shows “promising results” for not only prostate and skin cancer, but also breast, leukemia, and colon.
If you want this extract, you can buy it in any health food store. But chances are, you’ve already got the herb in your spice rack. Or perhaps growing on your windowsill. It’s that common. Click HERE for more details.
Sugar: Rocket Fuel for Cancer
Researchers at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Texas found that sugar may turn non-threatening localized cancers into deadly malignancies that spread throughout the body.
“The majority of cancer patients don’t die of their primary tumor,” said researcher Lorenzo Cohen, who worked on the study. “They die of metastatic disease.”4
The findings help explain what cancer doctors have noted for years… Patients who eat sugary foods are more likely to have advanced cancer.5
The researchers used mice for their study. But they took procedural steps to mimic human eating habits. They fed mice doses of sugar equivalent to levels in the typical American diet. And they used mice genetically predisposed to breast cancer in the same way many women are.
The results were alarming. At six months, 50% of the mice had breast cancer.
Common table sugar, or sucrose, is actually composed of two sugars. These are glucose and fructose. The study found fructose caused tumors to grow larger and faster than glucose.
Fructose is processed mostly by the liver. Glucose by the pancreas and other organs. These two different processing systems could have something to do with the findings.
Of course, sugar trade groups attacked the study. They pointed out that fructose is found naturally in fruits. Researchers fired back that a little bit of fructose is needed by your body. But Americans eat far more than they could ever possibly get by eating fruit.
And fruit contains fiber and other healthy substances mixed in with the fructose. Sweetened soft drinks, the number one source of sugar in the American diet, provides no nutrition.
Sugar is so strongly associated with cancer that doctors actually use it to detect cancer in your body.
The PET (positive emission tomography) scan is commonly used to find cancer in your body. Doctors inject you with radioactive glucose before the scan. Hungry cancer cells suck up the sugar faster than healthy cells. The scan shows the concentration.[vi]
Switching to an artificial sweetener doesn’t necessarily let you off the hook either.
Equal (aspartame), Splenda (sucralose), and Sweet ‘N Low (saccharin) all come with health dangers. These sweeteners are linked to headaches, dizziness, nausea, memory loss, depression, and even cancer.[vii]
3 Healthy Natural Sweeteners
There are some sweet alternatives that come without major health risks:
Raw Honey: Make sure it is not processed. Refined honey can be as bad as sugar. Look for 100% organic raw honey. The darker the honey, the more nutrients and flavor. It also has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, and antioxidant properties.
Blackstrap Molasses: Don’t confuse this with regular molasses. Blackstrap is a byproduct of sugar cane. The healthy minerals such as iron, B6, magnesium, and calcium aren’t processed out. It doesn’t flood your body with sugar. The sugar content is released slowly.
Stevia: This low-calorie natural substance is made from the leaves of a plant native to South America. It is very sweet, so a little is all you need. Its glycemic index is zero… So it has no effect on your blood sugar. Some studies have shown that at extremely high doses it can disrupt the liver, fertility, and your metabolism. Make sure to use organic varieties.
Now you can satisfy your sweet tooth—without giving yourself cancer.
But there is one other thing you should know about stopping cancer…A small group of holistic doctors were quietly discovering cancer breakthroughs.
Then, when word of their effective therapies started getting out, something terrible started happening… The doctors started disappearing.
