Scientists have found that some types of cancers have more of a sweet tooth than others.
Tutkijat aikovat seuraavaksi selvittää sokerirajoitetun ruokavalion vaikutusta.
An upcoming study by Kim's group will examine the effect of a sugar-restricted diet on the progression of lung cancer in an animal model of the disease. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that in 2015, on average, each American consumed more than 75 pounds of refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners combined.
"As a culture, we are very addicted to sugar," Kim said. "Excessive sugar consumption is not only a problem that can lead to complications like diabetes, but also, based on our studies and others, the evidence is mounting that some cancers are also highly dependent on sugar. We'd like to know from a scientific standpoint whether we might be able to affect cancer progression with dietary changes."
Sokereiden ohella veren glukoosipitoisuutta nostavat kuitenkin myös tärkkelykset sekä liikaproteiinit.
