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

January 11, 2016

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.
