Dr. Young’s Research Validated – Fruit Sugars Cause Pancreatic Cancer

I have been sharing my research for over 30 years that sugar causes cancer and that high sugar fructose from fruits, including corn causes cancer. Corn and corn sugar is one of my top ten foods never to eat – and corn syrup is in many foods and drinks. Are you listening?

Sugar is an acid and causes cancer! All sugars including agave, stevia, maple syrup, cane sugar, corn syrup, fructose, glucose, destrose, sucrose, and all artificial sweetners as well are acidic and toxic to the human or animal body.

Sugar is a drug. Sugar is an acid. Sugar is a neurotoxin. Sugar is a posion. Sugar is a metabolic waste product. Sugar is a metabolite of cellular degeneration. If you eat sugar in any form it will make you sick, tired and fat and eventually kill you.

Finally my reserach has been validated. Sugar/fructose from fruit causes pancreatic cancer.

There is no such thing as an alkaline sweeter. They are all acidic and toxic to the body.

There is sugar in every food which comes from the fermentation or breakdown of that food. Sugar is the urine of fermentation. Stop eating it now if you are truly in…

WASHINGTON — Pancreatic tumor cells use fructose to divide and proliferate, U.S. researchers said on Monday in a study that challenges the common wisdom that all sugars are the same.
Tumor cells fed both glucose and fructose used the two sugars in two different ways, the team at the University of California Los Angeles found.

They said their finding, published in the journal Cancer Research, may help explain other studies that have linked fructose intake with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancer types.

“These findings show that cancer cells can readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation,” Dr. Anthony Heaney of UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center and colleagues wrote.

“They have major significance for cancer patients given dietary refined fructose consumption, and indicate that efforts to reduce refined fructose intake or inhibit fructose-mediated actions may disrupt cancer growth.”

Americans take in large amounts of fructose, mainly in high fructose corn syrup, a mix of fructose and glucose that is used in soft drinks, bread and a range of other foods.

Politicians, regulators, health experts and the industry have debated whether high fructose corn syrup and other ingredients have been helping make Americans fatter and less healthy.

Too much sugar of any kind not only adds pounds, but is also a key culprit in diabetes, heart disease and stroke, according to the American Heart Association.

Several states, including New York and California, have weighed a tax on sweetened soft drinks to defray the cost of treating obesity-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

The American Beverage Association, whose members include Coca-Cola and Kraft Foods have strongly, and successfully, opposed efforts to tax soda.

The industry has also argued that sugar is sugar.

Heaney said his team found otherwise. They grew pancreatic cancer cells in lab dishes and fed them both glucose and fructose.

Tumor cells thrive on sugar but they used the fructose to proliferate. “Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different,” Heaney’s team wrote.

“I think this paper has a lot of public health implications. Hopefully, at the federal level there will be some effort to step back on the amount of high fructose corn syrup in our diets,” Heaney said in a statement.

Now the team hopes to develop a drug that might stop tumor cells from making use of fructose.

U.S. consumption of high fructose corn syrup went up 1,000 percent between 1970 and 1990, researchers reported in 2004 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

  1. Great article! Sugar is definitely proving the hardest addiction for me to kick as I follow the Ph lifestyle. In your writing before the article, you mention that there is no alkaline artificial sweetener, not even Stevia. However, in your books you mention that Stevia is acceptable and I use one packet a day in my spinach smoothie. Will that hinder the progress I am making?


  2. What a load of ….

    Check out this community http://www.30bananasday.com – these people eat the MOST fruit out of any people on the planet. There Is NO pancreatic problems, no cancers to speak of.
    Feel free to post any questions you have on the forum. Lol stevia is acceptable but fruit is bad. Your logic and research is highly flawed.

  4. DUH! glucose is used by all cells to grow , if you give a liver cell glucose it will grow if you take it away it wont glucose is converted to ATP which causes the cell to function. Try a microbiology textbook page one.


  5. Can someone explain to me how fresh ripe organic watermelon or oranges are going to give me cancer? Fruits were provided by nature to be eaten by animals including humans in order to spread their seeds. A symbiotic relationship designed by nature. I just don't buy it that fruit is not healthy. High fructose corn syrup…sure.


  6. And another related question…watermelon is 92% pure water, yet Dr. Young says it causes an acidic reaction in the body. As much as I agree with much of what Dr. Young says, I just can't swallow some of it. I am 53 years old and have been enjoying watermelon every summer since childhood. Based on what Dr. Young says, I should have been dead, or at least contracted cancer long ago.


  7. The 'original' diet for man back in the Bible days was a fruiterian lifestyle. I think its so funny how doctors encourage us to eat fruits and vegetables for good health. Some of us do – but then we also eat EVERYTHING else in abundance. Then when we develop diseases like Type II Diabetes, they tell us to lay off the fruit. I haven't done much research on the subject, but I'd be interested in learning just how many people eating a fruiterian diet are diabetic or suffering from cancer – pancreatic or any kind….as a result of their 'fruity' lifestyle.


  8. So my understanding is that higher acidic blood levels create an atmosphere that encourage cancer to grow. And foods like green vegetables lower this acid level. Is that correct? It seems like there are so many variables that there is no way to avoid the risks. Here's some advice from pancreatic cancer survivors that I found helpful: pancreatic cancer But does anyone know any sure-fire ways to lower the risk of getting cancer? I would appreciate it!


  9. Basically, according to the researchers, in healthy cells, certain growth factors regulate their metabolism and cell survival. When these growth factors are removed, there is loss of glucose uptake and metabolism, and the cells die. However, they found that cancer cells are able to maintain glucose metabolism by using a protein called “Akt”, which promotes glucose metabolism. This prevents cell death, even when the growth factors are not available.

  10. What I'm not grasping here is that while any tests have been conducted on the various types of sugar are these sugars from fruit simply being isolated then tested? Are any of these sugars being tested as found in their natural state along with all other nutrients found in each respective fruit?

    To isolate these sugars then test them under any condition surely will not have the same effect as when they're in their natural synergistic states along with all the other nutrients and phyto-nutrients nature supplies them with which act and react within the human body synergistically.

    Surely if we were to remove any biological or chemical faction of anything that comprises a conglomeration then we've compromised its symbiotic effect. If we remove white pigmentation from white paint we no longer have white paint, correct? And while this may be a Neanderthal comparison in relative terms it nonetheless speaks to the bigger picture of what I'm trying to say here.

    How therefore can we isolate and/or remove sugars from fruit and expect to still have the same synergistic effect? The body will obviously break down these sugars upon assimilation, etc. but doesn't it as well utilize all other nutrients within the fruit together with the sugar for an effect different than if we'd consumed sugar alone? I mean if I were to simply consume sodium by itself the effects surely aren't the same as if I eat a piece of celery.


  11. It's interesting that Steve Jobs was a self proclaimed fruitarian for years, sometimes eating nothing but apples for weeks at a time. And he dies at an early age of pancreatic cancer.


  12. While this is a really interesting in vitro study, it's not logical to make the leap that you have to say all fruit is bad for you and will cause pancreatic cancer to proliferate. Also, Stevia is not fructose or sugar, so why is it forbidden? I agree with Jenna, you recommended it in your books.

    Many, many people have THRIVED on a mostly raw diet that includes fruits. You cannot consume a palatable diet that includes zero sugars … we are biologically programmed to seek foods that taste sweet because they are typically safe to eat – not poisonous. Can we eat too much? Sure. Especially the highly processed forms of non-food sweetened with extracted sugars like HFCF. When consumed as a whole fruit, with all the fiber and nutrients, I just can't see how any natural component would lead to causing or feeding cancer.

    If the take-away is stay away from processed sugars, I agree. If it's stay away from whole natural organic fruits … that's a leap that is unsupported by any research.


  13. While I agree with you on your assessment of sugar…why did you include Stevia in that same category? Stevia is not a sugar, nor does it convert to sugar in the bloodstream. It doesn't spike blood sugar, in fact, it regulates it. It's also not a fruit, it's an herb.


  14. What an excruciating ignoramus this fool of a man is. Equating the Natural, life-giving sugars of a wholesome piece of fresh fruit to High Fructose Corn Syrup would be like equating swimming and drowning because they both take place in water.

    I know that Artemus Ward must have been thinking of imbeciles like this when he said, “It's not so much what people don't know that causes problems; it's what they do know that just ain't so”.

  16. I am sure he meant processed stevia. Do we know what they do to it really before they sell it in the grocery store? Too much of any one thing can do harm and provide a means to malnutrition. Balance is best and hard to achieve.

  18. I don't see any fruit name on the article, just references to “glucose”, “sucrose”… After all, who can compromise and write such a nonesense as: “don't eat apples, or bananas, they will cause you cancer”
    Being more than 80% water, fruits' fructose does NOT produce the same reaction as artificial high concentrated syrups. This argument is almost as bold and vague as “the accusation of gravity being responsible for millions of deaths by serious injuries and traumas due to its gravitational effects”. It is ignorance that produce accidents, not gravity. It is ignorance in the function of body's metabolism that produce cancer, not fruit sugar, that is the best fuel for human beings.



  19. According to Dr. Robert Lustig, a well known endocrinologist from UCSF who posted a video lecture called “Sugar: The Bitter Truth, says that fructose is indeed a poison, but only if it is isolated, as in fruit juice. In his lecture, he says, “'When God made the poison, He packaged it with the antidote.' In nature, fructose is always paired with plenty of fiber.” Eating whole fruits as part of a healthy diet is not harmful because the fiber that comes along with it, both insoluble and soluble, causes the body to metabolize it slowly and properly.
