Doctor reveals scary connection between processed foods-sugar and cancer

Whether you chew a salty snack or sweet treats, it’s not news that processed food is not good for your waist – especially if you eat it in fresh fruit and vegetables or other healthy foods such as nuts and beans. However, what is even more related is the ability of processed foods to bring in the main havoc on your health then go down.

In metabolics, which recently debuted at bookstores everywhere, Robert H. Lustig, MD, MDL, a pediatric neuroendocrinology, explained many ugly truths of our current food system and modern medicines. He dives into the depths of eight pathologies in cells believing in all chronic diseases, arguing that the drug is not an adequate solution for prevention or treatment. Instead, Lustig shows how the food we eat is real medicine – and enemies – for non-communicable diseases.

Ultra processed food, such as potato chips, cured meat, cheese, and candy bar, is often filled with additional sugar, partially hydrogenated oil, and nitrate. In metabolic, the title that marries the way the body works (metabolic) with mass produced food, large pharmacy, and the large (evil) government, Lustig illustrates how all components found in processed food can lead to conditions such as 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.

How to eat processed foods to cancer?

“Nitrates are changed to the first intestine to become nitrite, then to Nitrosourea, which is known to be carcinogens and causes colon cancer,” Lustig said in an interview with this eating, not!.

Recent research has even suggested that nitrate – found in recovery meat such as pancetta, prosciutto, and salami, plus other processed meat such as bacon, beef jerky, and sausages – can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease itself.

“And fine carbohydrates cause insulin release and insulin resistance,” he said. “Insulin is a growth factor that makes cancer cells grow, and glucose is their main fuel.”

Some cancers, such as pancreatic cancer, parties in fructose (which form 50% table sugar or sucrose), allow them to become stronger and more dangerous.

“So, while sugar is not specific causes of cancer cell differentiation, it is the main driver of cancer cell growth,” Lustig added.

How do mass food production destroys public health over the past few decades?

Not including 2020, if you check the cause of death for the past 50 years, you will see that they have changed dramatically from infectious diseases (such as influenza) for non-contagious diseases (such as heart disease, dementia and cancer), Lustig said.

“This is a mitochondrial disease. We now have evidence for how ultra-processed food – especially sugar, but also trans-disturbing fats with mitochondria to cause this chronic disease,” he added. “In other words, the food has changed from providing health to cause disease. The point is that it is not food – that’s what is done for food that makes it poisonous.”

What should you do to improve your own metabolic function and avoid chronic and inflammatory diseases?

Lustig said the answer lies in three words: eating genuine food. That is easy.

“The original food is everything that comes out of the ground or any animal that consumes what comes out of the ground,” he added. Don’t miss reading Health Benefits of Alligator pepper you never knew

When an animal is fed something that is processed, plant-based items have been stripped of nutrients and fibers (think of wheat versus white bread), or chemicals added to animal feed or growing plants, the food can then be a threat to us health.

“We have limited capacity to metabolize these chemicals, and we far exceed our limits,” Lustig said. For more, make sure to check the 26 worst habits that slow down your metabolism, science.
