Common Food Found to Have Shockingly Strong Link to Tumors By Dr. Mercola

Huge 5-year study of 105,000 people showed an alarmingly strong dose-dependent link to tumors. Even after adjusting for many co-factors such as smoking. An earlier study linked the same bombshell to over 45 percent of cardiac/diabetic deaths. Are you getting a lethal dose?

The dangers of excess sugar consumption have been well-established and were officially recognized in the 2015-2020 U.S. dietary guidelines,1 which recommend limiting added sugars to a maximum of 10 percent of your daily calories.2 Make no mistake, however, that this goal is nearly impossible to achieve on a processed food diet.

A fast-food meal consisting of a burger, fries and soda can easily add up to an entire day’s worth of required calories, while leaving your body starving for vitamins, minerals, live enzymes, micronutrients and healthy fats. This kind of diet, consumed daily for months and years on end will inevitably prevent you from maintaining good health.

In fact, research suggests refined high-carb diets are as risky as smoking, increasing your risk for lung cancer by as much as 49 percent.3 Researchers have also predicted obesity will overtake smoking as a leading cause of cancer deaths.4 Unfortunately, Americans not only eat a preponderance of processed food, but 60 percent of it is ultra-processed5,6 — products at the far end of the “significantly altered” spectrum.

Story at-a-glance

  • The dangers of excess sugar consumption have been well-established and were officially recognized in the 2015-2020 U.S. dietary guidelines, which recommend limiting added sugars to 10 percent of daily calories
  • Sixty percent of the processed foods consumed by Americans is ultra-processed and account for 90 percent of the added sugar consumption in the U.S.
  • Examples of ultra-processed foods include breakfast cereals, pizza, chicken nuggets, soda, chips, salty/sweet/savory snacks, packaged baked goods, microwaveable frozen meals, instant soups and sauces
  • Studies have highlighted the risks of processed high-sugar diets, showing excessive sugar consumption is at the very core of many of our current disease epidemics as it drives obesity and insulin resistance
  • French researchers now warn that ultra-processed foods raise your risk of cancer, and the more ultra-processed foods you eat, the greater your risk; each 10 percent increase in ultra-processed food raised the cancer rate by 12 percent
