I've heard cancer loves sugar and booze. I went on a kick for a few days, ingesting neither; sugars were from fruit, basically. This morning was another story, coffee and Bailey's (half a pot) and a Mr. Big chocolate bar. Breakfast of champions.
Waiting for CT scan and bone scan to see if it has metasticized. Have a good day everybody, cheers.
@lifesbutadream , there’s been a lot of debate over the sugar causing cancer statement, and there are some discussions in the forums about it, if you want to go through the archives (or do a search on sugar — something might pop up that way, too)
Personally, I can’t see sugar being the only enemy. Some say it’s the obesity that sugar causes that causes the cancer, but skinny people get cancer, too, and some of them have had a downright pious life in the diet department.
We now know that cancers can be caused by many factors: family history, viruses, exposure to certain nasty chemicals. So, I’d be disinclined to think that your “breakfast of champions” is going to do more damage than the disease that they’re investigating!
LOVE LOVE LOVE your handle….makes me think of the song, natch…..I feel compelled to call you sweetheart!
I do not know if cancer loves sugar, but I have posted endlessly about my #pizzagintherapy last summer….not trying to brag, but I am convinced my ‘therapy’ was instrumental in my treatment…..
not great for my girlish figure, but hey…..anything to make you feel better as you work thru the waiting for DI appointment and then the results is a win in my books!
I dont think that is self destructive at all…use whatever legal ‘therapy’ you need to get thru these difficult chapters. and besides, I never heard of ANYONE saying salad made them feel better! ha ha
let us know how things move along for you…..thanks for your post sweetheart….so many of us can relate 100%.
@lifesbutadream welcome although I’m sorry about your breast cancer diagnosis. There is no scientific correlation between sugar and cancer. As others have said, some of the most fit and diet conscious develop cancer. Cancer doesn’t seem to discriminate. I say some Bailey’s and chocolate aren’t going to hurt you and I bet taste pretty good.
Do be kind and gentle with yourself.
Just wanted to say that was my first exposure to the myths section of cancer.ca. Where have you been all my life beautiful!
