34 Dangerous Cancer-Causing Everyone Should Know About

All types of cancer are caused by the genetic mutations and damage due to these mutations of our nucleic acids-DNA. But in order to address cancer cases in individuals, there are many other reasons which lead to cancer in a human being. For example, one of the major reasons for cancer is genetic inheritance; traits transferred from one generation to another. Other causes are of external nature which is linked to factors like environment and food we eat.

In the United States, cancer is ranked as the second most fatal disease which causes death of individuals. The nature of this disease includes mutations and overproduction of certain cells i.e. tumors that act like toxic intruders to the human body and leading it to destruction. It is true that there are many causes of cancer which are beyond human control like genetic mutations caused by inheritance or the changes which the human body undergoes in a lifetime. But there are still a large number of reasons which can be dealt with by our efforts and precautions to reduce the chances of cancer, just like avoiding carcinogens from entering into our body and eating stuff which is light and healthy.

Sugar

In 2017, a paper released by Johan Thevelian, a biological researcher of Belgium stated that high consumption of sugar leads to the stimulation of the cells that cause cancer which further extends to a dangerous cycle of reproduction of these cells. Any sweet-tasting, soluble carbs are referred to as sugar. It can be of two types- The first is Monosaccharides or simple sugar. This can include fructose, glucose, and galactose. The other type is compound sugar, also known as double sugars and Disaccharides. It comprises two molecules of sugar combined. For your information, compound sugars first need to be broken down into simple sugar, and then it is absorbed into our body’s bloodstream.

In our everyday life, we consume a variety of sugars. From sucrose, which is a combination of fructose and glucose, to lactose, in which galactose and glucose are combined, and maltose, a combination of glucose and glucose. So each of our body cells uses blood sugar or glucose for energy. However, cancer cells use around 200 times more glucose than normal cells. If there’ a tumor in the flat, thin squamous cells in the lungs, the cells will start gobbling up even more glucose. It happens because vast amounts of sugar are required for the growth of cancerous cells. Research suggests that sugary and sweetened drinks can increase the risk of cancer by 70%. In 2017, a paper released by Johan Thevelian, a biological researcher of Belgium, stated that high sugar consumption leads to the stimulation of the cells that cause cancer, further extending to a dangerous cycle of reproduction of these cells.
