Here is interesting news about cancer cells proliferating on fructose. We have all heard the bad news about too much sugar in the diet and too much sugar being one of the big culprits in the scourge of obesity in children. Now researchers have documented that cancer cells, which like glucose and any other kind of sugar, actually grow more wildly with fructose. This study addressed pancreatic cancer cells that thrived on fructose, but one wonders whether more studies will similarly indict other cancers.
Since processed foods often contain high-fructose corn syrup, this article just reinforces my personal belief that food cooked from scratch is usually a better choice.
