The problem with consuming too much sugar is that it causes your pancreas to produce an abundance of insulin. And what does insulin do? In addition to regulating your glucose levels, it also encourages cells to grow. So if you have cancerous cells in your body, consuming too much sugar will produce a lot of insulin that will in turn grow your cancer cells. Regulate your sugar intake to keep glucose levels and insulin production at a healthy, steady rate.
Consider having a fresh piece of fruit rather than a glass of fruit juice. The juice is packed with sugar; however the piece of fruit, while sweet, is also packed with fiber and protein which help keep glucose levels from spiking and dropping drastically.
