It’s the Sugar, stupid

If you decided to play Russian roulette, you would make sure there’s just one bullet in the gun. Wouldn’t you? Only a fool or someone with a death wish would load the gun with three or four bullets before putting it their head and pulling the trigger.

Several new landmark studies into the causes and progression of cancer suggest that is exactly what we are doing everyday. I have been saying for years, it does not come down to bad genes, bad luck, or bad circumstances, it’s bad choices. The studies are revealing between 70 and 90 percent of cancers are the direct result of things we choose to do: the food we eat, what we smoke or how much alcohol we drink.

The researchers, from Stoney Brook University Cancer Center in New York, ran four computer models, which included health profiles and population information. In EVERY case, the information pointed to a similar result: cancer has very little to do with bad genes.

Dr. Yusuf Hannun, the lead researcher sums it up like this: “It’s like a revolver. Intrinsic risk is one bullet, and if we are playing Russian roulette then maybe one in six will get cancer – that’s the intrinsic bad luck. Now, what a smoker has done is add two or three more bullets to that revolver. And then he pulls the trigger.”

But it’s not just smoking, as two other important studies have revealed. It’s SUGAR! Eating processed foods, cakes and drinking sugary colas adds yet more bullets to the barrel, just as the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Otto Warburg observed over 80 years ago.

***Sugar can encourage the start of cancer, and then feed the cancer cells and help them grow and spread.

In another study, women with breast cancer were more likely to die of the disease if they also had high levels of insulin. This is because their cancer had grown and spread – and insulin is what helped make that happen. If you have heard me speak or read other of my articles you know that I preach “Insulin is the Devil!” You must lower your insulin! What was even more interesting was that NONE of the women in the study had type 2 diabetes.

To add more fuel to the sugar fire, a further study concluded that sugar in your blood provides the pathway that helps cancer cells grow and spread.

As part of doctor, chemist and Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine in 1931 Otto Warburg’s research, he discovered cancer cells are anaerobic – they don’t need oxygen – but instead use fermented sugar as an energy source.

Despite this work, the medical industry – and particularly the cancer industry still fails to recognize the true cause of cancer. And, despite compelling evidence, the nay-sayers remain entrenched as ever, claiming that such information and talk is scaremongering and overly simplistic. This thinking is most likely behind hospitals, like KU cancer hospital in my area, giving cakes, sweets, juice and other refined sugar to cancer patients after chemo and diabetic patients after insulin while they are in the hospital.

Blood sugar related diseases (all diseases) and cancers are so prevalent in our society and ever increasing, and the issues and complications from these health problems have become so widespread, why are we playing Russian roulette with people?

It is, after all, the sugar, stupid.

Dedicated to your health,

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
