Does sugar ‘feed’ cancer?

The claim that sugar feeds cancer is a misunderstanding of how the cells function. Every cell in the body runs on sugar for energy.  Dietary sugar or glucose stored in our fat cells is converted inside the cell into ATP, which is cell energy.  If you try to starve the cancer cells of sugar you starve all the cells in the body not just the cancerous cells.   

A cancer cell uses more fuel because it is a cell that is under distress. If you think about how exhausted you feel after enduring a stressful situation you can understand how much energy you burn when operating under stress versus when you’re calm.   The cancerous cell is a cell under severe stress from the conditions of disease present in the body.  Since the cancer cell is under severe stress the cancer cell is burning through more sugar than the other cells in that area of the body due to the stress it is operating under. 

The sugar feeds cancer narrative was created because there was a study that measured the amount of sugar being burned in these cancerous cells and compared it to healthy cells.  The conclusion that they drew was that the sugar was feeding the cancer cell because they were starting from the false assumption that a cancer cell is something that attacks the body from without, rather than being a process of the body.   In reality, a cancer cell is a healthy cell in distress and because of the distress, the cell is utilizing more energy than the other cells that are not in distress.  

So as a result of this, the myth of sugar-feeding cancer came about. This myth is founded upon the germ theory narrative that cancer is an outside invading entity that is attacking the body. In the medical narrative, cancer is a mystery, we are just unlucky when we fall upon it, they don’t understand that it has known causes and in many cases, cancer is labeled a virus that is said to attack the body, often lying dormant for years before doing so. 

The medical theory is this cancer virus is attacking the body. The person has acquired this virus by mysterious means, not by their own mistakes in living, not by their dietary indiscretions but by pure accident. Since this is a separate entity attacking the body it is said to be stealing sugar from the other cells. None of this narrative is in alignment with what the science of cellular biology shows us, but this is the medical narrative.   

A cancer cell is a cell that is drowning in a backlog of waste and as a result of this, the normal healthy cell converts itself into a bacterial cell, a more simple life form to survive the harsh conditions that are being provided.   A cancer cell is different from a tumor.  A tumor is a pocket of damaged cells, cellular waste, toxins, and debris that the body has walled off and creates a pocket of scar tissue around to separate the toxic material from the surrounding healthy cells.   A tumor is an induration, stage 6 of disease.

The cells inside the tumor are often cancerous, which means that rather than acting in concert with the other cells in the body they are instead acting for their own survival.  This is why the medical industry says these cells have “gone rogue”.   In the medical narrative the “rogue” cell is attacking the body and the cancer expands because the rogue cells are multiplying out of control.   

In biological reality, the cell is trapped in a very toxic environment and is no longer working to complete its normal functions and instead is just working to survive.   The toxicity of the environment turns off the normal self-destruct program that a damaged cell would activate to recycle itself. The cell keeps itself alive burning up sugar, but incapable of performing its other duties or recycling itself.  As the backlog of waste grows the area of injured cells continues to expand.  The causes of disease are not addressed and corrected, the patient’s diet is not corrected, and the medical industry adds additional poisons to the body during this time leading to an ever-expanding waste backlog.  The medical narrative then says that the cancer is spreading.   In biological reality, the waste material damaging the normal healthy cells is spreading, creating additional unhealthy, damaged cells.      

In regards to your question, “is it possible and true that the dead cells, existing in a tumor at the last stage, are thriving on sugar and its fermentation? If the body is choosing to convert only some sugar to energy from fruit and lets the rest to ferment.”    The body does not choose to allow fermentation.  Fermentation is a process of the fruit itself.  When digestion is impaired, either due to overeating, poor food combining, ingestion of inappropriate substances, illness, fatigue, or emotional distress then the body is unable to work on the fruit fast enough to break it down before the fruit’s natural fermentation recycle process begins.   Fermentation is a process that creates alcohol.  When we ferment food in our digestive tract we are subjected to that alcohol as a by-product and we are poisoned by that alcohol.  When humans consume animal tissues and secretions these materials putrefy instead of fermenting and their byproduct of putrefaction is ammonia, a much stronger poison.    As these poisons are introduced to the body they increase the disease load on the body.   Since most people who have Cancer have not corrected the damaging dietary habits that led to the cancer in the first place their digestion is damaged and operates poorly resulting in more fermentation and putrefaction, which continuously poisons the body.   

Fermentation is not feeding the cancer cells but is expanding the horizon of waste, which creates cancer cells by turning normal healthy cells into diseased cells that are struggling to survive in the dirty environment that has been provided.    

For cancer cases, it is typically advised for the person to first transition back to their natural diet before attempting any fasting.   This is especially true if the person is showing signs of muscle wasting.   Since digestion has been so badly impaired it is difficult for many cancer cases to maintain weight and regain weight, so fasting may result in difficulty in recovering that weight. By giving the body some time on the natural diet to slowly repair digestion some they are often able to retain weight easier when fasting later.    The body is also severely dehydrated, so a period of fruits and salads is advisable before the first fast to allow the body to rehydrate some.    

In most cases, it would be best to feed a cancer patient the same way we would feed a healthy human, with a balance of sweet, acid, and sub-acid fruits along with an abundance of greens.  However, if the person is fermenting sugary fruits, resulting in gas, bloating, or burping then we would want to eliminate those foods and focus more heavily on salads until the digestion improves, at which point the more sugar-rich foods could be incorporated again.   

As Warburg stated, cancer can only exist in a high-acidity environment.    Therefore, an abundance of leafy greens is key to healing cancer because those greens are mineral-rich providing an abundance of alkaline minerals to neutralize the acids.  But balance is always the path to health.   If we wish to return the body to health we must provide the same conditions that keep an already healthy body in a state of health. 

Aside from the diet, water intake is of paramount importance, the solution to pollution is dilution.   Fresh air, sunshine, plenty of rest, and moderate exercise when energy is present are also important, but prioritizing rest is much more important in the early stages of healing.
