Research Shows Cancer Cells Thrive on Sugar

Natural Cures Not Medicine on Facebook:

(NaturalNews) Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, your dietary habits could be significantly adding to your risk of developing cancer. New research published in the journal Nature Medicine has confirmed that processed sugar is one of the primary driving forces behind the growth and spread of cancer tumors, so much so that the future of cancer screening could rely on scanning the body for sugar accumulation.

Scientists from University College London (UCL) in the U.K. made this discovery after experimenting with a new cancer detection method that involves utilizing a unique form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). After sensitizing an MRI scanner to look specifically for glucose in the body, it was revealed that cancer tumors, which feed off sugar, light up brightly as they contain high amounts of sugar.

“The new technique, called ‘glucose chemical exchange saturation transfer’ (glucoCEST), is based on the fact that tumors consume much more glucose (a type of sugar) than normal, healthy tissues in order to sustain their growth,” explains a recent UCL announcement, noting that tumors appear as “bright images” on MRI scans of mice.

Traditionally, cancer screenings have involved the use of low-dose radiation injections to identify the presence of tumors, which makes sense as radiation is another known cause of cancer. The things that trigger and promote cancer development and spread, in other words, can also be used by doctors to detect it inside the body. And now sugar can officially be added to this list.

“The method uses an injection of normal sugar and could offer a cheap, safe alternative to existing methods for detecting tumors, which require the injection of radioactive material,” says Dr. Simon Walker-Samuel, lead researcher of the study from the UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI).

Interestingly, it was also noted by the study’s senior author that the amount of sugar in “half a standard sized chocolate bar” is all it takes to effectively identify the presence of tumors using the glucoCEST method. This is astounding, as it suggests that even relatively low amounts of sugar have the potential to promote cancer proliferation.

Many cancer tumors respond directly to insulin produced by sugar consumption

The UCL study is hardly the only one to have identified a connection between processed sugar consumption and diseases like cancer. Other research, including that being currently being conducted by Dr. Robert H. Lustig, M.D., a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), confirms that the bulk of chronic illnesses prevalent today are caused by sugar consumption.

You can watch a presentation from Dr. Lustig entitled Sugar: The Bitter Truth here:

As far as cancer is concerned, hormones produced by the body in response to sugar consumption also feed cancer cells. This means that every time you down a soda or eat a piece of cake, your body produces certain chemicals that tell cancer cells to not only start taking up sugar, but also to grow in size and spread.

“What we’re beginning to learn is that insulin can cause adverse effects in various tissues, and a particular concern is cancer,” says Dr. Lewis Cantley, head of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) at Harvard University, as quoted during an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes.

“If you happen to have a tumor that has insulin receptors on it, then it will get stimulated to take up the glucose that’s in the bloodstream,” he adds. “So rather than going to the fat or to the muscle, the glucose now goes into the tumor, and the tumor uses it to grow.”

Forms To Exempt Your Child From Forced Vaccinations

Natural Cures Not Medicine on Facebook:

Vaccine Refusal / Exemption Forms

Below, you will find a right to refuse vaccinations form that we typically use.  We have this one displayed for you to copy and paste.  We also have the right to refuse Hep B in hospital for newborn as well as a right to refuse a TB test (refusal forms below).  Please realize that should you sign one of the vaccination refusal forms from your doctor's office or the hospital, you may be acknowledging that you are putting your child's life in danger.  Read the forms very carefully and do not acknowledge anything that states vaccines saves lives, are necessary for health, etc. When these in-office or in-hospital refusal forms are signed by parents they could be used against parents for endangerment of a child by Child Protective Services.

Vaccine Refusal Form

We, _________________________, hereby state that we have chosen not to vaccinate our child,_________________ because we are philosophically opposed to the concept of vaccines.
We maintain this is a responsible and ethically justifiable position for the following reasons:
-vaccination is a medical intervention performed on a healthy child that has the ability to result in injury or death of that child;
-the fact that there can be no guarantee that the deliberate introduction of killed or live microorganisms into the body of a healthy child will not compromise the health or cause the death of that child, either immediately or in the future;
-no predictors have been identified by medical science that can give advance warning that injury or death may occur in any individual child;
-there are no guarantees that the vaccine will indeed protect the child from contracting a disease;
-there is an absence of adequate scientific knowledge regarding the way vaccines singly, or in combination, act in the human body at the cellular and molecular level.
Therefore, we believe that vaccination is a medical procedure that could reasonably be termed as experimental each time it is performed on a healthy child.  
Our state law makes provisions for non-vaccination of children whose parents object to vaccines for religious or philosophical reasons.  We accept full responsibility for the health of our child, and because of philosophical conviction, do not wish our child vaccinated.  In the event of any infectious condition, our child would of course remain at home.  We further understand that during the course of an outbreak of any so called "vaccine preventable disease" would occur at your facility, our child is subject to exclusion from your facility for the duration of the outbreak.





Hep B In-Hospital Vaccination Refusal

DATE: __________________________
To All Doctors and hospital personnel:
This is to inform you that we are refusing the hepatitis B shot for our new born baby.
This letter is intended to supersede any consent, implied or otherwise, to papers signed at the time of, or before, hospital admission for the birth of our child.
The legal position on this is clear: however convinced a doctor-or nurse-may be that certain a treatment is in a patient's best interest, no medical treatment may be given without the patient's consent.
We want to be very clearly understood: we do NOT give consent for the vaccine to be given.

TB Testing

To Whom It May Concern:
I hereby declare that, I, ____________________________________, withhold my consent on Tuberculosis screening on the grounds that such testing is in violation of my United States of America Constitutional 1st Amendment Right to religious freedom. It would be a violation of my religious beliefs to knowingly contaminate the body with inorganic and/or organic substances, such as the mycoplasma antigens, that can cause injury, illness, or other harm to my well-being.
  • The Tuberculin Purified Protein Derivative (Mantoux skin test). TubersolT determines that a person has been previously exposed to or had a previous infection by M. tuberculosis or a variety of non-tuberculosis bacteria. A positive reaction may also represent an allergic reaction to the components of the test. It cannot tell whether a person has active tuberculosis disease.
  • TubersolT contains Tween 80T as preservatives. A very recent study (December, 2005) discovered that Tween 80T , also known as polysorbate 80, can cause anaphylaxis, a potentially fatal reaction characterized by a sharp drop in blood pressure, hives, and breathing difficulties in persons previously exposed. Researchers concluded that the anaphylactic reaction was not a typical allergic response caused by histamines and IgE antibodies, but it was caused by a serious disruption that had occurred within the immune system. REF: Coors, Esther A, et. al. "Polysorbate 80 in medical products and nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions." Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. 95 (2005): 593-599.
  • I further assert the following:
  • There is no tuberculosis epidemic in ___________________________[city] to warrant the mandate of such testing.
  • There is no tuberculosis crisis at the ___________________________ to warrant the mandate of such testing.
  • Symptoms commensurate with tuberculosis are known to be:
    1. Coughing up blood/ Chest infection
    2. Severe weight loss
    3. Night sweats
    4. Constant exhaustion
    5. Loss of appetite
    I, _______________________ have not exhibited any of these of symptoms. There is no reason to suspect that I may be infected with Tuberculosis.
  • The CDC reports the following persons represent these high-risk categories for contracting TB:
  • Those coming into close contact with persons known or suspected to have TB
  • Foreign-born persons from areas where TB is common: Asia, Africa, or Latin America
  • Elderly persons (over 65 yrs.)
  • Health care worker who serves high risk patients-AIDS, TB, indigent
  • Healthcare worker in close contact with medically underserved, low income populations
  • I am not an Intravenous Drug Abusers
  • I, _______________________ do not fall into any of these categories. The chance that I may be infected with Tuberculosis is minute and thus, provides no basis to suspect I may be infected with Tuberculosis.
    Overall, I am a healthy adult who poses no serious, infectious health threat to others. My overall good health has been confirmed during visits to my primary physician and other healthcare givers.
    I have included these assertions to show that by not being tested for Tuberculosis, I pose no 
    threat to the health and well-being of others here at

    12 Dangerous Cosmetic Ingredients to Avoid

    Natural Cures Not Medicine on Facebook:

    Some ingredients in beauty care products aren’t so beautiful. According to a report by U.S. researchers, 1 in 8 of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals which are highly carcinogenic, and include things like pesticides to reproductive toxins and hormone disruptors.

    Below is a list of 12 toxic and carcinogenic ingredients to avoid in your personal skin and beauty products – I would suggest you go and find all of your products and start looking up these ingredients and throwing out those products. You can opt for chemical-free cosmetics and natural skin care products which are much safer for your skin and overall well-being!

    I like to use jojoba oil as a full-body moisturizing oil (it absorbs quickly since it is a wax ester that mimics our sebaceous oil glands). As for make-up, I do not wear any. I sometimes wear a little eye liner (vegan, all-natural earth ingredients) if I decide to go out, but normally I just curl my lashes. Surprisingly, beet makes a wonderful blush and lip dye.

    Here is a list of 12 toxic and carcinogenic ingredients to avoid in your beauty and skin care products:

    (1) PEG (Polyethylene glycol)
    Used in conditioners, moisturizers, deodorants, etc. It contains dangerous dioxin levels which have been found as a by-product of the ethoxylation process in manufacturing. Dioxins have a direct link to cancer.

    (2) Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
    Used in 90% of foaming beauty care products (hand washes, shampoos, etc.), which may cause liver damage, skin rashes, depression, diarrhea and eye damage. This chemical is also found in engine degreasers and garage floor cleaners.

    (3) Triclosan
    Synthetic antibacterial agent. It alters hormone regulation and makes bacteria resistant to antibiotics. It is registered as a pesticide by the EPA and is classified as a chlorophenol meaning it can cause cancer.

    (4) DMDM Hydantoin & Urea (Imidazolidinyl)
    Formaldehyde releaser preservative with trade name Glydant. Can cause joint pain, cancer, depression, chest pain, allergies, chronic fatigue, dizziness, ear infections, and skin reactions.

    (5) Phthalates
    Used as plasticizers and can disrupt normal hormone functioning. You will often not find phthalates on the label, but some common abbreviations are DBP or DEP. It is also linked to liver and kidney damage.

    (6) FD&C Color and Pigments
    Synthetic colors from coal tar, strongly linked to ADHD in children. Contain heavy metal salts which are deposited in the skin causing irritations. Many studies link these coloring agents to cancer.

    (7) DEA (Diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), and TEA (Triethanolamine)
    Foaming booster (for hand washes and the like). Causes skin irritations and contact dermatitis. Very easily absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream where it collects and aggregates in our organs and brain.

    (8) Benzoyl Peroxide
    In many papers, called “free radical-generating skin tumor promoting agent.” Two-thirds of research supports the linkage between BP and skin cancer. It is toxic by inhalation and is an eye, skin and respiratory irritant.

    (9) Dioxin
    Apart of antibacterial ingredients like triclosan, PEGs, emulsifiers and SLS. Causes cancer, lowers immunity, causes birth defects and causes depression.

    (10) Sunscreen Chemicals
    Oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and PABA – all generate free radicals in the body which damage DNA and increase cancer risk.

    (11) Parabens (Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl, Propyl)
    Preservatives, not always labeled. Studies have found concentrations of parabens in human breast tumors (making a direct link to this chemical causing breast cancer). It is used in deodorants and other personal care products. Causes major hormone disruption.

    (12) Propylene Glycol (PG) and Butylene Glycol (BG)
    Petroleum plastics. EPA warns to prevent skin contact as it causes brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities. It is considered so toxic that it requires gloves, clothing, goggles and disposal by burying.

    Monsanto Pays Farmers to Spray GM Crops With RoundUp

    Natural Cures Not Medicine on Facebook:

    Proving that nothing is out of bounds in the pursuit of food hegemony, Monsanto alters the free market itself by paying customers to use their products. Farmers are paid up to $20 per acre to plant Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready GM corn, as long as they spray it with a blend of RoundUp and herbicides from other companies.

    The story behind this bizarre twisting of the free market starts with Monsanto’s genetically-engineered corn that was made to survive Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide, RoundUp. Actually, the story began billions of years ago with basic evolutionary functions. As a population of life forms is attacked repeatedly, individuals will begin to evolve defense mechanisms against that mode of attack. These individuals survive (the fittest) and pass the defense mechanisms along to their progeny.

    In this case the predator was Monsanto’s chemicals and the prey was agricultural weeds. Some of the target weeds, such as pigweed, developed resistance to RoundUp in a matter of years. These “superweeds” are now a major problem for an agricultural system that has become dependent on chemical poisons.

    Facing this reality, Monsanto keeps its product in use by actually paying farmers to use other herbicides from other manufacturers in conjunction with its own. While this is going on, it is developing other genetically-engineered crops that can withstand even more toxic herbicides than glyphosate.

    Interestingly, when Monsanto was pushing to have its GM corn seed approved for commercial sale in 1993, it stated that RoundUp is “considered to be a herbicide with low risk for weed resistance” and it was “highly unlikely” that resistant weeds would emerge. Apparently this was good enough for the USDA. Besides calling into question the validity of the USDA approval process, this calamity casts a great deal of doubt on Monsanto’s ability or truthfulness of their own research.

    However, this likelihood of weed resistance was in fact known among scientists involved in agricultural issues. In 1990 the Union of Concerned Scientists published a report called “Biotechnology’s Bitter Harvest” where they explicitly warned of the development of herbicide-resistance.

    This free market manipulation—Monsanto paying farmers to use its product—can only be carried out by a corporation with huge economic might and a near monopoly, in tandem with government protection in the form of patents on life.
