    • Breast cancer tumours may be influenced by daily sugar intake

      This is no surprise for us low carbers but great to see this being published on websites such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation:


      We've all been warned about sugar and its potential to wreak havoc on everything from our teeth to our waistline. But those with a sweet tooth may now also face increased risk of breast cancer, according to a new study from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

      The study, published in the online edition of the Cancer Research journal has found that high levels of sugar found in fizzy drinks and junk foods could be causing breast cancer.

      The researchers fed mice a sugar-rich Western diet and found not only increased levels of tumour growth in the breast, but also a greater potential for that cancer to spread (metastasise) to the lungs.
