Is a life-threatening disease like cancer related to sugar?

The cells in our body use blood sugar (glucose) to get energy, while cancer cells in the body also use sugar.

But does sugar have anything to do with a disease like cancer? Let’s look for answers to the same questions that arise in the brain today.

Cancer cells use 200 times more sugar than normal cells and the main reason for this is that these cancer cells need more sugar to grow and these cells spread rapidly in the body using excess sugar.

But Dr Niranjan Naik, director of surgical oncology at the Fortis Memorial Research Institute in Gurugram, India, says there is no strong evidence so far on whether sugar causes the spread of cancer or not, but there is an indirect link between sugar and cancer.

According to experts, taking excessive amounts of calories also increases the weight of a person rapidly and due to obesity, the risk of cancer and other diseases also increases in humans.

Experts from the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute say, "Never think that consuming sugar causes cancer."

How does diet affect blood sugar levels?

One apple doctor and two apples daily must be protected from life-threatening disease!

He said that the real culprit is obesity because fat cells produce a protein that damages DNA that later turns into a tumor, obesity increases the risk of 13 types of cancer in humans, including breast, liver, and bowel cancer.

After smoking, the biggest cause of cancer is obesity, which everyone can easily control.

Apart from this, experts believe that there is no truth in the fact that cancer can be avoided by not using sugar, only one thing can save a person from cancer and that is the ‘lifestyle’ of the person and daily exercise because a healthy life can be lived by taking fewer calories.
