The Sugar Cancer Study Explained


Eating Sugar Doubles Risk Of Death In Cancer Patients

Groundbreaking Seven-Year Study Shows The Deadly Role Of Sugar For Cancer Patients

A groundbreaking, seven-year human study, by Dr. Colleen Huber, NMD and her team at Nature Works Best, an alternative cancer clinic in Tempe, Arizona, exposes a severe threat to the survival of cancer patients – the consumption of sweetened food or drinks.

Dr. Huber led a team of physicians in a seven-year interventional study where cancer patients avoided all types of sugar: honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, plant nectars, alcohol and fruit juices (which are high on the glycemic index). This is the first large, human, interventional study that has indicted sugar as deadly for cancer patients. All previous studies were in mice, or retrospective, or in fewer than 20 human subjects.

Methods

Since 2006, this clinic has collected data on sugar consumption in cancer patients, and has actively recommended, but never enforced in any way, avoiding the consumption of sweetened foods (except with the sweetener Stevia Rebaudiana, which has no sugar content or sugar alcohol content). In this controlled interventional study, we followed the diets and outcomes of all 317 cancer patients who came to our clinic with a diagnosis of cancer, and who stayed at least two weeks in our care.

We treated with natural methods alone, choosing among methods with research-established anti-neoplastic effect, both oral and intravenous, dietary and supplemented, nutritional and herbal, having a preference for those with high patient tolerance and compatibility, and varying with individual needs and tolerance, according to the standard naturopathic principle of “Treat the whole person.”

The Sugar & Cancer Study Results

The results of the study showed the group of cancer patients who were steadfast in the recommended naturopathic treatments, but did not avoid eating sugar had a remission rate of 36%. The second group who were also steadfast in recommended naturopathic treatments, but did avoid eating sugar had a remission rate of 90%. That is they did not eat: sugar, cane sugar, honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, plant nectars, alcohol or fruit juices (except the sweetener Stevia Rebaudiana).

About Us

Dr. Colleen Huber is the founder and director of Nature Works Best, a natural cancer clinic in Tempe, Arizona that focuses on holistic, naturopathic, and alternative cancer treatments – no chemotherapy or radiation is used. Treatment consists of Dr. Huber’s nutrient infusions, together with a simple food plan, which in steadfast patients, has achieved remission rates of 90% across all types and stages of cancer. While not all patients choose to follow the dietary restrictions, the infusion treatment plan alone has resulted in an unprecedented 83% remission rate.

Patients arrive at the clinic with different types of cancer, sometimes with different co-morbidities, and different patterns of metastases. All have done well, with the exception of some late Stage IV patients who had already been sickened by conventional cancer treatments. In the last five years, the clinic has lost only 32 of 317 patients.
