The body converts starchy carbohydrates & highly processed foods into sugar, which raises insulin levels. Too much insulin leads to obesity and other metabolic health issues including cancer. Insulin also supports the growth of cancer cells as it acts as a growth factor in the body (Insulin Growth Factor IGF 1). https://phenq.com/blog/what-is-igf-1/
What we eat and how often we eat affects cancer growth.
My husband, Bill, has had cancer since 2013 and has had several operations for different cancers during this time. He made a conscious decision to change his eating habits 6 months ago following the success I had and also the effect the current virus had on people with metabolic health issues. He has ample to eat, he is hardly hungry and he enjoys what he eats. He has lost 3 stones in weight/fat, dropped 2 dress sizes, improved his immunity and feels quite well.
Once again, the importance of following a low carbohydrate real food diet is emphasised. This way of eating helps you to eat less frequently and enables you to reverse most metabolic issues you may have, such as excess weight/fat, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart health, allergies, inflammation, poor immunity and more.
Dr Jason Fung is highly regarded in his studies on Intermittent Fasting and Metabolic Health. His interview on the sugar/cancer link is found at: https://youtu.be/UgUdBEXqE8E
