Cancer and Sugar

Cancer Loves Sugar

Every doctor learned back in medical school all about Otto Warburg's discovery; a discovery of humongous proportions, because way back in the fifties Otto discovered the main biochemical cause of cancer, or what differentiates a cancer cell from a normal, healthy cell.  So big a discovery was this, that Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize.

Cancer has only one prime cause.  It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body's cells by an anaerobic [i.e., oxygen-deficient] cell respiration. - Dr. Otto Warburg

But what else does Warburg's discovery tell us.  First off, it tells us that cancer metabolized much differently than normal cells.  Normal cells need oxygen.  Cancer cells despise oxygen.  In fact, oxygen therapy is a favorite amony many of the alternative clinics we've researched.  Another thing this tells us is that cancer metabolizes through a process of fermentation.  If you've every made wine, you'll know that fermentation requires sugar.  The metabolism of cancer is approximately 8 times greater than the metabolism of normal cells. 

Okay, so here is what we can put together knowing the above:  The body is contantly overworked trying to feed the cancer.  The cancer is constantly on the verge of starvation and thus constantly asking the body to feed it.  When the food supply is cut off, the cancer begins to starve unless it can make the body produce sugar to feed itself.  The wasting syndrome, cachexia, is the body producing sugar from proteins ( you heard it right, not carbohydrates or fats, but from proteins) in a process call glycogenesis.  This sugar feeds the cancer.  The body finally dies of starvation, trying to feed the cancer.  Now, knowing that one's cancer needs sugar; does it make senst to feed it sugar?  Does it make sense to have a high carbohydrate diet?  The reason Food Therapies even exist today (beyond the fact that they work) is because someone once saw the connection between sugar and cancer.  There are many food therapies, but not a single one allows many foods high in carbohydrates and not a single one allows sugars, BECAUSE SUGAR FEEDS CANCER.

Why doesn't your physician tell you this?  Hard to tell.  Maybe your doctor feels it is his job to cure your cancer, not yours.  Maybe because your doctor learned about Warburg, but never put the rest together, never placed nutrition into the equation.  Maybe because your physician didn't study nutrition.  Heck, as late as 1978, the AMA's official position (stated in courts of law) was that nutrition had nothing to do with health or disease.  However, those who've paid attention to this sugar craving cancer stuff have come up with some remarkable therapies for cancer.  Laetrile is just one.  Hydrazine Sulfate, which stops the process of glycogenesis is in greater than 50% of all patients with cachexia is another. 

Today, at the University of Minnesota, they are experimenting with a chemotherapy delivered in a "smart bomb."  Here's the scoop:  the drug is wrapped in a coating that stays intact as it travels through the body, that is until it reaches a location of no oxygen.  When it reaches this "no oxygen" location, the coating falls apart releasing the chemotherapy to destroy the cancer, because the only place in your body where there is no oxygen is the cancer site. 

Then there are the food therapies: aimed at starving cancer.  Knowing what cancer loves, the paitent avoids them.  Cancers loves cooked foods (this is a relatively recent finding) and avoids them. 

If you hate your cancer, then starve it.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "Dr. Anderson has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside."
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Anderson and he put together a program for me that helped right away. He stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Carpal Tunnel
  • "It's been 7 months since I got wiped out by a monster wave. I sought treatment at the hospital and they took x-rays and said everything seemed normal, that I would just have some pain for a few days. A few days actually turned into several weeks, so at the suggestion of my girlfriend, I went to see Dr. Anderson."
