Is Sugar Toxic? Does It Cause Cancer?

This news could save the life of your child! And, importantly, eliminate unfathomable suffering.

Allow me to direct you to an article entitled, “Is Sugar Toxic?” that appeared in the New York Times Magazine on Sunday, April 17.

There is now very strong evidence that indicates sugar is not just another food. It is toxic and poisonous. Sugar does very strange and horrible things in the human body.

We have known for decades that sugar feeds cancer. Now we know that sugar actually causes cancer — as well as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. And sugar is, as you know from observing your children, highly addictive.

In Cancer Defeated, Ty Bollinger has clearly stated the fact that all these problems are really one problem. Ty states that we didn’t know the exact mechanism, but now the picture is coming clear.

Folks, your children should eat fresh, raw foods — but those foods should be vegetables. Fruit consumption should be low to moderate.

It has long been understood that alcohol (one step chemically removed from sugar) is toxic, it immediately affects the brain. It is acutely toxic.” When you drink alcohol, you feel it within a very few minutes. And the real danger with alcohol is that it is subtly addictive – so slight over time as to be difficult to detect. You simply don’t realize the problem until you have it. By then your brain chemistry has been physically altered and you have a disease that kills millions of people each year, many of them innocent victims on our highways.

Excessive, long-term use of alcohol damages your liver. But that’s not the reason it’s heavily regulated. Various levels of government regulate alcohol because of what it does to you within a few minutes, not years.

Dr. Robert Lustig thinks America needs rehabilitation for sugar addiction. According to brain scans, sugar is as addictive as cocaine, the California-based endocrinologist told CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”

It causes a euphoric effect that triggers dopamine, the chemical that controls pleasure in the brain. The average America eats a third of a pound of sugar every day. To read more, click here.

Dr. Lustig tells us that a can of Coke is as bad for your liver as a can of beer. The stress this drink puts on this organ is severe. Soda belly, he says, equals beer belly. You will find 45 grams of sugar, that’s 8 teaspoons, in just one Coke. Want to view a wake-up video? Click here and watch this.

In a related and interesting side-note, the scientist who discovered sucralose (Splenda) was originally trying to create an insecticide. An assistant thought he had been instructed to “taste” a compound he had only been asked to “test”. The prospective bug killer was very sweet!

Drinking one Coke a day for a year results in the consumption of 32 pounds of sugar. Drinking one Coke a day, instead of an equivalent amount of water for a full year would cause your child to gain 18 pounds.

We have been destroying our health for as long as we have been alive, starting with baby formulas.

To quote a recent New York Times article: “One of the diseases that increases in incidence with obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome is cancer. . .The connection was first reported in 2004 in large population studies by researchers from the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. It is not controversial.”

The N.Y. Times quotes Craig Thompson, President of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center:  “I have eliminated refined sugar from my diet and eat as little as I possibly can, because I believe that ultimately it’s something I can do to decrease my risk of cancer.”

Parents, please eliminate refined sugar from the diets of your children. It is something you can do to decrease their risk of cancer and other serious problems. It is not just death that you are dealing with, it is immense suffering.

In ten years Ty Bollinger suspects that most people will think of sugar about the same way they think of smoking. The day is coming. But that day may be too late for your loved ones.
