Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup

Dear Reader,

When doctors and researchers talk about a cure for cancer, it usually involves the development of extremely risky drugs, ones that will probably kill just as many patients as they “cure.”

But what it all boils down to is preventing what kills 90 percent of those who end up dying from a malignancy: the “successful” metastasis of cancer cells.

That’s when cancer cells escape from the original tumor and set up shop in other parts of the body, frequently the liver. And while doctors can typically remove the primary tumor, these traveling cancer cells often become unstoppable.

Now, Duke University scientists have discovered what could very well be the most important finding to date about how to keep cancer from metastasizing.

And by taking a few simple steps to cut off the food supply these killer cells use to multiply and thrive, it may be possible to stop them right in their tracks… something you can start doing right away!


‘Like a kid in a candy store’

The process by which cancer cells “detach” from a tumor and make their way to a new location inside your body isn’t all that simple. It’s more like an evil alien traveling through a dark galaxy while having to evade the defensive force of your immune system — and then setting up a completely new “microenvironment” to live in.

Of course, these killer cells also need food once at their new location, which is where this exciting new research comes in – the discovery that what cancer cells love to eat most of all is fructose. That’s right… as in high-fructose corn syrup.

“When cancer cells get to the liver, they’re like a kid in a candy store,” said one of the Duke scientists. And fructose, which is stored in the liver, is the perfect fuel to “create building blocks for growing more cancer cells.”

Once these malignant cells “rewire themselves” to easily utilize that fructose, they can become “unstoppable,” the researchers found.

While this new information is vital to both scientists and cancer patients alike, it’s not the first time that fructose has been implicated in the development and progression of deadly cancers.

Almost two years ago, MD Anderson researchers found that “it was specifically fructose” that is responsible for triggering an increase in breast cancer and its deadly metastasis.

And in 2010, University of California, Los Angeles, researchers discovered that fructose was like rocket fuel for pancreatic cancer cells, which can easily use the sweetener to divide and multiply.

The scientists who conducted the UCLA study commented at the time that they hoped the federal government would make some effort to “step back on the amount of high-fructose corn syrup in our diets.”

Well, I don’t think there’s much chance of that happening. But that’s something we can put into action all on our own – the only help necessary might be a good pair of readers to take to the supermarket with you!

A few decades ago, all you had to do was avoid soda if you wanted to dodge HFCS. Now, however, it’s in foods from yogurt to bread to condiments like relish and ketchup.

The good news is that more and more food manufacturers are taking it out of their products than ever before, thanks to informed shoppers like us. But you still have to be on the lookout for other forms of fructose.

That means checking labels and steering clear of any foods or drinks with added “fruit sugar” or any form of HFCS (which might have a number after it, such as HFCS 90, which means it’s 90 percent fructose!) – not to mention “fructose” itself!

Other ingredients to avoid include crystalline fructose and agave syrup, which is also sold as a bottled sweetener and is almost 100 percent fructose.

But don’t avoid actual fruit (meaning the real deal, not some gummies or fruit strips). While it does contain fructose, it’s “packaged” by Mother Nature in a way that allows you to digest it in a different and healthier way.

Even though we might not have our hands on a cure for cancer yet, if lives can be saved by eliminating added fructose from our diets, that’s really all that matters.

To Stopping the Spread of Cancer,

Melissa Young

    I have Agave and have used it sparingly but after reading the article I
    checked the bottle and it does mention it is 25% sweeter than sugar.
    If it is 100% fructose, well ouch! The label says 16grams of sugar hence
    the limited use. I note an aspect of the Agave bottle, it goes bam when
    it hits the bottom of the trash can………………William

  2. It seems that there is no way to avoid the stuff, it’s in just about everything you purchase in stores. I believe the FDA knows it’s dangerous stuff and they’re deliberately pushing it any way they can, along with the dangerous drugs and vaccines. Talk about conspiracy’s…well there is one, the Population control agenda, and The UN and the U.S. are the biggest proponents in the world for it.

  3. I too read all the labels and believe me, where I live, there are very few that have no GMO, and no HFCS on them. It surprises me when I see them.

    OMG I am so bummed to hear that Agave sweetener is high fructose corn Syrup. I was trying to get away from the zero cal sweeteners and using only Stevia which is just ok- No HFCS for me at all.
    Then I found the “Organic” Blue Agave sweetener which I dilute with water !/2 agave-1/2 water and have been using that thinking it was organic & natural (from a plant) thus better for me even tho it has some calories.
    Since I have been using it I feel like my blood sugar is more stabilized, I don’t have sugar cravings as much while my weight stays steady where I want it.
    Sugar is in everything-it is very difficult to eat a diet that is sugar less/free-
    so what is the solution?
    Stevia, granulated sugar?
    Gawd I agree with Barbara- they really are trying to kill us off…
    ugg!

  5. Listen, all depends about how much you use. If it’s not much it won’t hurt you. The high-fructose fruits you should allegedly should avoid include apples, cherries, mangoes, watermelon and pears. You can safely have moderate amounts of low-fructose fruits, such as honeydew melon, cantaloupe, bananas, blueberries, strawberries and oranges, if they are well spaced throughout the day. But I like fruit, and fruit is good for you, and I have fructose intolerance. So, I eat a banana with breakfast, an orange with lunch, and now that cantaloupes are in, we have them for dinner dessert.

    You cannot totally avoid it and fruit is fiber and fiber is good for you, so relax…unless you’re like me and have lost the aldolase-B enzyme in your liver, you can eat a lot of fruit and it won’t hurt you. It’s the canned fruit that is loaded with it. Avoid sweetened yogurt as it’s loaded.

    TY CZ I guess it depends on what how much you use is? lol…I’m a recovering sugar addict. Sorry to hear about your fructose intolerance.
    I should have said “any processed food” has allot of sugar in it. I try not to eat anything processed-but that’s tough sometimes. I love and do eat allot of fruit-mostly berries and citrus and veggies-but I cant put a strawberry in my coffee ;0. No yogurt -yuk.
    The ‘organic’ blue agave I get at Costco says it is 100% agave nectar from the plant.
    Does this mean it still has HFCS in it? or are they just conning us-again?
    BTW-Costco is a junk food addicts dream-geez they have allot of crap in there-super sized-yippee.

    • I have to limit the sugar intake and I like my coffee with sugar, but it sounds to me like you’ve bought the wrong kind of Stevia. I only buy Kal pure Stevia extract 3.5 oz powder from Vitacost.com. It’s 20 bucks for 3.5 oz has no fillers and really tastes good, and I’ve turned on many people to buying this way. You can’t find this in many stores and if you do it’s much more expensive. Get this and use it rather than agave nectar, which is worse than straight sugar and has high fructose in it.

      Try it…you will be happier.

    • Most agave syrup has a higher fructose content than any commercial sweetener — ranging from 55 to 97 percent, depending on the brand, which is FAR HIGHER than high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which averages 55 percent.

  7. Regarding beverages with sugar, these products do not cause cancer – of any kind. Still, America’s beverage companies are helping support American’s efforts to cut back on sugar and calories by offering more products with reduced or zero sugar, smaller portion sizes and calorie labels on the front of all of our products.

    • I’m sorry, but I would have to disagree with you. Those beverages may not cause cancer, but if you have ever had a cancer, you should stay far away from them. Beside that, they are not good for you, and the sugar substitutes they’re using aren’t either. I totally disagree with your post.
