Should people with cancer eat fructose?
It is known that sugar feeds cancer and fructose is a sugar. So the question is: should you avoid fruit because fruit contains fructose? The research into the dangers of fructose in fact relates to the consumption of high fructose corn syrup which is used as a sweetener in processed foods. This is the fructose that cancer patients must eliminate from their diets. The fructose in apples and grapes and other fruits actually serves a very good anti-cancer effect. It’s true that the cancer welcomes the fructose but along with the natural whole-fruit fructose comes a whole battery of phytochemicals (plant based chemicals) and phytonutrients that are hostile to cancer. So the fructose is the trojan horse that lets these anti-cancer nutrients into the cancer cell. This is the theory behind the grape diet in which you eat nothing but red grapes – pips and all (crunch them!) – if you can find grapes with pips (if not then add grapeseed oil to the programme). This, it is claimed, will help you get rid of your cancer pronto.
