Research isn't that conclusive.

Hmmm. Thanks for that. But it goes in direct opposition of countless articles I've read about cancer prevention. People that eat sugar tend to get cancer and cancer victims that continue eating it get worse. I I respect the Mayo clinic. But I have to wonder who profits from these things. That goes for big med and unconventional health sources.

My uncle died at age 50. Great athlete! But indulgent in junk food, especially refined carbs. That's what they taught us to eat back in the 60's and 70's for quick energy for athletes. He was addicted. After the cancer diagnosis, he cleaned up his diet and went vegan and avoided refined foods. Started getting remarkably better. Then because he 'felt' good, thought he could stray a little. In one weekend, went back to his old ways of ice cream and sweets. On Monday, he was back in the hospital. On Wednesday, he was dead.

By all means, do you own research. I have and I stay away from refined sugars like the plaque. I don't miss refined, processed sugar one bit.
