Does Sugar Cause Cancer?

Cancer is the number one killer in the United States. For many years, doctors have known that sugar feeds cancer cells. Now, Harvard researchers have discovered a way to potentially block the absorption of sugar by cancer cells. Dr. Mercola, my favorite Internet M.D., suggests that people avoid sugar. His words are worth repeating: "My feeling is that you start to dramatically increase your risk for cancer once your fasting blood sugar rises above 100. The higher your blood sugar level the higher your risk of cancer."2 [Emphasis supplied.] I advise people to sign up for Dr. Mercola's newsletter, which has interesting and useful health advice. Just go to and sign up where it says "subscribe" at the top of the page. He even has videos where he talks directly to you with great health advice.

Researchers at Harvard, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, have found a correlation between eating high glycemic load food (that is, sweet foods) and cancer.2
