Sugar Consumption Can Double the Risk of Death in Cancer Patients

A seven-year study of cancer patients found that consuming sweetened foods and drinks increases mortality.

Dr. Colleen Huber, of Nature Works Best Cancer Clinic, led a team of physicians in studying 317 cancer patients’ sugar consumption and their cancer outcomes over seven years.

Those who avoided all types of sugar, including honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, plant nectars, alcohol, and fruit juices throughout the course of treatment had a 90% remission rate.

Those who continued to consume sugar had a remission rate of only 36% – less than half of the “sugar avoiders.”


Refined, natural, whole — the type of sugar makes no difference in cancer outcomes. It’s still deadly. (Click to enlarge. Photo: By Romain Behar (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons)

The cancers involved were of all types, in all stages. The patients were treated solely with natural methods, including dietary therapy, nutrient IV infusions, and nutritional and herbal supplements.

This was the first large human interventional study to indict sugar as “deadly medicine” for cancer patients.

Previous studies were either limited to mice, or involved fewer than 20 human subjects.
