Sugar Feeds Every Cell In The Body, Including Cancer Cells.

This Sparked Me!

Sugar feeds every cell in the body, including cancer cells. Simple sugars enter the bloodstream quickly & cause a rise in insulin & other growth promoting hormones. High levels of these hormones may increase the growth of cancer cells. Complex carbohydrates do not affect insulin the same as simple sugars. Complex carbohydrates include foods like fruit, vegetables, beans, & whole grains. Substitute complex carbohydrates for simple sugars & reduce risk of cancer, diabetes & more.

    Sometimes it's hard for me to remember that I CAN have the complex carbs, in reason of course, so I begin to feel depressed because of the mental misconception that I'm being deprived. I am not only a diabetic, but also a cancer survivor and I'm trying to do the best I can to keep it that way. Thanks for the article! emoticon
