Sugar Kills

Recent studies show that sugar is toxic. It helps cancer grow. Some cancer cells can only use glucose as fuel. Researchers have even developed a way of detecting cancer by giving patients an injection of sugar before doing an MRI scan (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/262999.php).

Moreover diets high in added sugar raise heart disease risk too! (http://www.bmj.com/content/346/bmj.e7800)

Sugar is also the real villain in the obesity epidemic, and not fat as people used to think. (http://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/mar/20/sugar-deadly-obesity-epidemic)
