Cancer Cells Slurp-up Fructose, Reproducing in Body
Pancreatic tumor cells use fructose to divide and proliferate, U.S. researchers said on Monday in a study that challenges the common wisdom that all sugars are the same.
"These findings show that cancer cells can readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation," Cancer Center and colleagues wrote.
Americans take in large amounts of fructose, mainly in high fructose corn syrup, a mix of fructose and glucose that is used in soft drinks, bread and a range of other foods.
Too much sugar of any kind not only adds pounds, but is also a key culprit in diabetes, heart disease and stroke, according to the American Heart Association.
Several states, including New York and California, have weighed a tax on sweetened soft drinks to defray the cost of treating obesity-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
The American Beverage Association, whose members include Coca-Cola and Kraft Foods have strongly, and successfully, opposed efforts to tax soda.
The industry has also argued that sugar is sugar.
Heaney said his team found otherwise. They grew pancreatic cancer cells in lab dishes and fed them both glucose and fructose.
Tumor cells thrive on sugar but they used the fructose to proliferate. "Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different," Heaney's team wrote.
Now the team hopes to develop a drug that might stop tumor cells from making use of fructose.
U.S. consumption of high fructose corn syrup went up 1,000 percent between 1970 and 1990, researchers reported in 2004 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Dr. Iverson's Comment
One-thousand percent! Can you believe that? Our consumption increased by 1000% in only 20 years!   What do you suppose it is now, being 40 years later? We are on the verge of an epidemic of metabolic syndrome!!—which means elevated cholesterol, elevated blood pressure and elevated blood sugar, resulting in a society of fat people with fatty livers and fatty arteries, diabetes and now cancer!  
We live in one of the richest countries on the planet and because of this we are eating the richest foods full of chemicals and look what it is doing to our bodies. We have to go back to the ways of our great-great-grandparents and eat as Nature has shown us to eat. Please read my book Nature’s Diet. I go into great detail how we can have the health we were intended by eating the foods that Nature provided, instead of eating the food that was made in a laboratory. As you can see, Science is proving that the results of eating food ridden with chemicals are disastrous!
Be well~
