Default Cancer cells slurp up fructose

What isn't fructose bad for? If the FDA was a trustworthly organization it would be banning fructose.

Study shows fructose used differently from glucose
* Findings challenge common wisdom about sugars

WASHINGTON Aug 2 (Reuters) - Pancreatic tumor cells use fructose to divide and proliferate, U.S. researchers said on Monday in a study that challenges the common wisdom that all sugars are the same.

Tumor cells fed both glucose and fructose used the two sugars in two different ways, the team at the University of California Los Angeles found.

They said their finding, published in the journal Cancer Research, may help explain other studies that have linked fructose intake with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancer types.

"These findings show that cancer cells can readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation," Dr. Anthony Heaney of UCLonsson Cancer

That's too bad, because fruit is supposed to be good for us. Maybe it is, if it is left in its whole state. The worst is HFCS, which is fructose and glucose. Each have different pathways through the system.

All microbes love sugar, both the good microbes and the bad.

Have you seen the list Dr. Mercola has of the fructose content in fruits? You can use it to pick fruits wisely, say, cantaloupe or raspberries instead of mangoes and grapes. I was shocked how much fructose mangoes have: 16.2 grams in HALF a mango. I wonder if that's why my mother-in-law says not to eat them on an empty stomach. Whereas a cup of raspberries (my FAV!) has only 3 grams.
