5: “60 Minutes” Segment – New Research Links Sugar to Cancer and Metabolic Sydrome

From Sunday, April 1, 2012’s airing of “60 Minutes”:  New research supports the argument that sugar is addictive, toxic, and contributes to obesity, hypertension, increases in harmful LDL cholesterol, and diabetes.  In addition, researchers at Harvard are discovering that almost a third of all cancers (particularly breast and colon cancer) have increased insulin receptors on their cell surfaces, leading researchers to believe that high sugar consumption directly feeds opportunistic cancer cells.  Sugar binds to the cancer cell insulin receptors and is absorbed into the cancer cells, providing the fuel necessary for rapid cell growth.
