Soda vs. Juice — is juice really healthier?

I love orange juice and I also love soda – particularly Coke.

I’m not opposed to sugary drinks as a rule… And, really, I rather like them.

But I always drink Coke that has real sugar in it (it’s the kind that comes from Mexico).

It tastes better. And it does NOT contain high fructose corn syrup.

But is it really different from regular sugar?

You can’t always get Mexican Coke and you sometimes have to drink soft drinks with corn syrup…

Is corn syrup really really bad for you? These are the questions that people ask all the time.

In this article we’ll look at some of the effects that high-fructose corn syrup has in mouse models…

And I’m here to tell you that they are SCARY.

But first, let’s take a look at another piece of data.

There’s an increased risk of colorectal cancer if you drink sweet drinks (almost all of which are sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup).

Increased consumption of sweet drinks and other foods with high sugar content over the past 30 years is correlating with an increase in colorectal cancers in 25- to 50-year-olds in the United States.”

But until now, it was just a correlation…

There WAS no real evidence that high-fructose corn syrup actually increases the risk of cancer.

Mice fed the equivalent of one can of soda a day had accelerated tumor growth.

This is CRAZY…

In this study, they fed mice the equivalent of one can of soda a day…

And their tumors started growing faster than the other mice in the study.

“Their study, published in Science, showed that consuming a daily modest amount of high-fructose corn syrup – the equivalent of people drinking about 12 ounces of a sugar-sweetened beverage daily – accelerates the growth of intestinal tumors in mouse models of the disease, independently of obesity.”

To get these tumors to grow in the first place, the researchers deleted the gene that kept the tumors from growing.

From Science Daily:

“First, Yun and her colleagues generated a mouse model of early-stage colon cancer where APC gene is deleted. ‘APC is a gatekeeper in colorectal cancer. Deleting this protein is like removing the brakes of a car. Without it, normal intestinal cells neither stop growing nor die, forming early-stage tumors called polyps.’”

This sounds a little wonky…

Until you know that this is the same type of mutation that humans with colorectal cancer have.

So it’s entirely possible that this mouse model effect is happening in humans.

“More than 90% of colorectal cancer patients have this type of APC mutation.”

The researchers then tested groups of these mice – one with a moderate amount of high-fructose corn syrup water and another with regular water.

The high-fructose corn syrup group had tumors that grew faster and got bigger.

“The researchers gave the mice a moderate amount of sugary water orally with a special syringe once a day. After two months, the APC-model mice receiving sugary water did not become obese, but developed tumors that were larger and of higher grade than those in model mice treated with regular water.”

The cancer used the high-fructose corn syrup as fuel.

The cancer was very efficient at using this particular ingredient to grow bigger and faster.

“This study revealed the surprising result that colorectal cancers utilize high-fructose corn syrup, the major ingredient in most sugary sodas and many other processed foods, as a fuel to increase rates of tumor growth…”

Colorectal cancer is normally very slow-growing.

“In humans, it usually takes 20 to 30 years for colorectal cancer to grow from early stage benign tumors to aggressive cancers.”

But it seems like these types of high-fructose corn syrup drinks accelerate the growth.

There are a lot of things we can do for our health to help us live longer and healthier lives.

I recommend replacing the high-fructose corn syrup sodas with orange juice and an occasional Coke from Mexico that’s sweetened with cane sugar.

It’s a pretty easy switch… And your body will thank you for it.
