11. Instead of Sugar or Artificial Sweeteners


In order to proliferate, cancer cells seem to prefer feeding on fructose-rich sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS); the reason is that HFCS is being metabolized by cancer cells most quickly and easily. Now it is clear why high-fructose corn syrup is considered the worst offender. And since cakes, pies, cookies, sodas, juices, sauces, cereals, and many other extremely popular, mostly processed, food items are loaded with refined sugars and HFCS in particular, this helps explain why cancer rates are on the rise these days.

There are many alternatives to using white, table sugar. Honey is the one most people think of right off. Be sure you are buying raw or unprocessed honey for the best health benefits. You can also use molasses. Molasses is loaded with vitamins and probably has the best source of nutrition among all sugar substitutes. Maple syrup is another good option. Not pancake syrup, but real maple syrup from trees. It’s more expensive but well worth the money nutrition wise.

If you are looking for a low calorie option, try Stevia. This is from the leaves of a plant grown in South America and is generally sold everywhere.

    Nice. Reminds me of your “Top 20 Dangerous Foods You Absolutely Must Avoid” article.

    Stevia was a good option. But Monsanto Food Czar, Michael Taylor, at the FDA allowed Neotame, worst than aspartame, to be added to stevia and other sweeteners or sweet products, with the consumers not needing to know.

    Neotame is highly toxic to the brain–central nervous system.

    You do fail to realize that 90% of the world cannot afford to eat this way, though. Or if you do realize it, article author, you evidently don’t care.

    How about avoiding something yourself, hmm? Like mentioning a family of four has to take out a second mortgage to eat for a year on your “recommendations”.

      Gosh, we must live on different planets. So, in your world is instead of costing less to cook popcorn on the stovetop it costs more so you have to eat microwave popcorn instead? Sad. I would consider not eating popcorn at all.

        Except, gosh, I don’t even eat popcorn. You’re irrelevant.

    Nicki, your whole tone is snarky, snippy, tacky, attacking and inflammatory. What gives you the right to such bad behavior? This article was for YOU and ME and those who live in a society that offers these choices. Why would you bring issues here where that isn’t the focus, but rather YOUR good health is?

    Look and read before you make that verbal leap. So, you don’t like the advise, send your unwanted food to a starving family that is in that inflated 90% stat you tout.
    Give it a rest. This was not to cure the starving in countries whose governments rape the land, and oh, yes, the people. Get a fix on issue at hand, and take those well meaning sentiments to the proper forum, PLEASE.
    What’s wrong with DISCRETION when it’s useful? People today blather way too much, and I’m sad to say, your comments are precisely that. Context is everything to achieve an audience where you points will be valid.

    DISCRETION is the quality of having or showing discernment and good
    judgment. And your bologna about “You do fail to realize” is condescending, patronizing and abjectly ignorant. You can have no possible basis for assuming what this author does or does not know. Stop showing your assine mind set.

      I believe you meant “asinine”.

      And do be a lamb and use proper grammar if you want someone who graduated high school to attempt to translate your comments, would you?

      Bad behavior. I scoff at your own definition of such, when you’re really just being a cunt.

        Darling, just because my spelling wasn’t perfect, and I’m so surprised you didn’t catch “advise” which should have been advice, doesn’t mean jack to me nor change my message. Nitpicking is just passive aggressive bs. I’m not surprised you resort to it. And neither does your opinion of my education level which is none of your business and a perfect example of your tactics. As for calling me names like cunt, well. There you go. And my grammar is far better than yours. *shakes head, shrugs shoulders*

    This list of things to avoid I totally agree. I never eat anything it that fashion. The simple decision about what to eat is as close a you can find to how God created it. Any change is a defect.
