It’s the fructose, stupid! Preliminary studies suggest that fructose is linked to the spreading or metastasizing of cancer. Most people with cancer don’t die from the primary cancer, they die from the spreading of cancer to other parts of the body. So the ability to influence or to stop the spread of cancer is critical. As it turns out, limiting consumption of fructose may play an important role. Don’t worry about the small amounts of fructose in fruit. Worry about the fructose that’s 50% of table sugar, 55% of high fructose corn syrup and up to 90% of agave syrup (and other so-called health foods). The body is not meant to handle large concentrated amounts of fructose.
