What is sugar really doing to men’s bodies?
—-Important Message About a Bad Food Ingredient You Should Avoid—-
This food ingredient should be outlawed – how much of it did you eat today?
This bad ingredient is in MOST of today’s foods…
For one thing, it builds up in the bloodstream and travels to different parts of the body…
It builds up in a man’s Leydig cells in the testicles, making his testosterone levels plummet…
And it destroys the beta cells in the pancreas, so men become insulin resistant and get diabetes…
On top of all of this, it builds up in a man’s penile chambers, blocking good blood flow and causing erectile dysfunction.
What happens to your body when you eat sugar?
Sugar is supposedly really bad… But with all the hype about sugar being bad for your health…
We are overlooking evidence that fat is bad for your health…
A series of animal experiments showed that high-fat diets increase the growth of cancer.
High-sugar diets did NOT have that same effect.
The US Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, Grand Forks, ND conducted this first series of experiments. The International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment published the results.
This study tested the effect of different types of diets on the progression of cancer in mice.
The researchers selected these mice for their predisposition to develop certain types of cancer.
“The objective was to determine whether an obesogenic, high-fat diet enhances primary tumorigenesis and pulmonary metastasis in these mice.”
They sorted the animals into two groups of 33.
Then they fed the two groups of mice on different diets:
- Group 1 ate a standard mouse diet with about 16% of calories from fat
- Group 2 ate a diet with 45% of calories from fat
- Otherwise, the diets were similar
After the mice ate these diets for eight weeks, the researchers examined the animals for cancer progression.
And the animals on the high-fat diet had far more advanced signs of cancer.
“…high-fat diet significantly increased tumor progression by 59%, primary tumor weight by 60%.”
Tumor growth was accelerated in the mammary glands of the animals.
The effect of the high-fat diet in the lungs of the animals was even more extreme.
“…high-fat diet significantly increased the number of lung metastases by 147%.”
The high-fat diet caused a massive increase in systemic inflammation, which is strongly associated with the progression of cancer.
“…high-fat diet significantly increased the abundance of pro-inflammatory cytokines.”
In this experiment, the safer, lower-fat diet had 60% of calories from carbohydrate.
Carbohydrates can be either starch or sugar… But in this study, most of the carbohydrate came from starch.
So what happens with a high-sugar diet instead of a high-fat diet?
The lead author of the previous study conducted a follow-up at the same US Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center. The Journal of Nutrition Research published the results.
This study singled out one of the most common sugars: sucrose (table sugar).
“This study tested the hypothesis that consumption of a diet with an excessive amount of sucrose enhances metastasis.”
They compared the effects of a standard diet, a high-fat diet, and a high-sugar diet against cancer progression in mice.
Again, the results showed that a high-fat diet increased the progression of cancer.
“The number and size of lung metastases were significantly higher in the high-fat group than in the standard diet group.”
Animals fed a high-sugar diet did not show acceleration of cancer progression.
The high-sugar diet contained 45% of calories from sugar, similar to the 45% of calories from fat in the high-fat diet.
“The number and size of lung metastases were significantly higher in the high-fat group but metastasis in the high-sucrose group remained similar to the standard diet group.”
This series of experiments showed that high-fat diets increase cancer in these animals – but a high-sugar diet did not accelerate cancer growth.
The high-sugar group did not have the same level of inflammation that the high-fat group did.
“Pro-inflammatory cytokines in the high-sucrose group were significantly lower than those in the high-fat group.”
The scientists believe that increased inflammation from a high-fat diet could be accelerating cancer.
“The high-sugar diet does not enhance spontaneous metastasis. This may be due to the inadequate production of cancerous pro-inflammatory cytokines compared to the high-fat diet.”
Sugar – in itself – is not bad…
But it’s still a good idea to get your sugar from whole foods such as fruit and milk for more balanced nutrition.
You should always consult a healthcare professional about diagnosing and treating health problems.
