An Additional Way To Fight Cancer?

After being on oxygen for eight years, my father died of pancreatic cancer. So I especially took interest in this recent research, which found that fructose causes cells to multiply in pancreatic cancer.

Researchers explored the differences in glucose and fructose metabolism in pancreatic cancer cells. They found that fructose, which naturally occurs in fruit and is artificially created in sweeteners such as high fructose corn syrup, allows the cancer to progress more quickly.

These findings have major implications for cancer patients. Consuming less fructose, including some fruit, might be a an additional way to fight cancer.

It's the small, every day decisions that affect our health. What choices will you make today?
