Through laboratory studies, American scientists proved that sugar consumption significantly increases the risk of developing cancer.
The subjects were mice. Two groups of animals participated in the study. One group ate sucrose approximately in the quantities in which it is normally consumed in many countries. The second group ate the food without sugar.
It turned out that the increase of sugar level in the blood of the first group causes the rapid growth of the tumor.
Scientists besides have found that corn syrup with high fructose and table sugar led to the growth of metastases in mice’s lungs.
Based on the conducted research, the scientists urge people to limit their sugar consumption, which increases the risk of cancer, diabetes, and obesity, and stick to a sugar-free diet in the daily menu.
