Cancer tumors in the intestines feed on sugary drinks, new study shows
- Sugar can promote cancer by accelerating the growth of tumors in the body
- Mice that consumed high fructose corn syrup saw intestinal tumors grow faster  Crowd is the equivalent of people drinking about 12 ounces of a sugary drink a day
Sugar could promote cancer by accelerating the growth of tumors in the body, according to a new study.
Weill Cornell Medicine researchers in New York found that mice that consumed high-fructose corn syrup used in biscuits, ice cream, and energy drinks made gut tumors grow faster.
People drinking about 12 ounces of a sugary drink a day.
sugar could contribute to cancer by accelerating the growth of tumors in the body, Dr. Lewis Cantley, co-author of the study by Weill Cornell Medicine, said: "This observation in animal models could explain Why the increased consumption of sweet drinks and other high-sugar foods over the past 30 years has correlated with an increase in colorectal cancers among 25- to 50-year-olds in the United States. "
Understanding the diet of sugar cancer could also increase a new treatment lead the study, suggested the scientists of the study.
However, some experts have warned that the mechanism has been demonstrated in mice that are genetically susceptible to cancer and may not be transmitted to humans.

Michael Skilton of the University of Sydney, who was not involved in the study, told the Times that he was impressed by the research, but warned that the results were not readily applied could become people.
He said, "Regardless of whether these sweeteners have a direct impact on tumor development and tumor growth, people who reduce the likelihood of developing cancer should restrict their intake."
The main author Marcus D. Goncalves said, "We have not been able to show that high-fructose corn syrup is causing new tumors, as these mice develop tumors without sugar even in a normal diet.
" But if you give them this added sugar, which makes tumors much larger, "he added.
The study was published in the print edition of Science on March 22.
