New cases of colorectal cancer account for nearly ten percent of all new cancer cases diagnosed each year, and eight percent of all cancer deaths worldwide. Although medical researchers have known for some time that tumor cell propagation is fueled primary by glucose, a scant amount of scientific evidence exists to demonstrate that consumption of sugar laden foods promotes the growth and metastasis of cancer cells. A research study team from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, publishing the result of their findings about dietary sugars and colon cancer incidence from the Scottish Colorectal Cancer Study, reveal that the consumption of sodas, cakes, biscuits, snacks and desserts is linked to an increased risk of colorectal cancer (bowel cancer). Amazingly, this is the first study of its kind to analyze and provide solid evidence to establish a link between bowel cancer and high sugar and fat diets.
