Diet does matter…new study linking sugar intake to breast cancer

An important confirmation of common sense comes out of the University of Texas

today, linking a high sugar diet with an increase risk of breast cancer and lung

metastases.

Previous population studies have shown a correlation with a high sugar diet (think

‘typical western diet”) and breast cancer. Now scientists have worked out the link by

demonstrating how sugar effects an enzymatic signaling pathway known as 12-

lipoxygenase. This pathway promotes inflammation and makes it easier for the cancer

cells to develop and later nest (metastasize) in areas beyond the original tumour site.

Nourishment through a wholesome low processed and low inflammation diet should be

an essential part of any cancer treatment management plan.
