Watch “Does Sugar Feed Prostate Cancer? Does Fatty/Adipose Tissue Attract Cancer? | Mark Moyad, MD, MPH” on YouTube

In my 12+ years of dealing with prostate cancer, I’ve heard a lot of theories about what causes it and what actions we can take to control or slow its growth—some of them legitimate, some at the very end of the weirdness spectrum.

I found this 7-minute video from 2019 to be pretty interesting considering how many times I’ve heard that sugar is related to the cancer growth. According to this, sugar in and of itself has little to no impact on prostate cancer growth (but may have an impact on other cancers). I’m guessing that a quick Dr. Google search would reveal other videos or studies with differing viewpoints, so take this with a grain of salt. (See what I did there???)

We all have to recognize that there are going to be differing opinions. We just have to make decisions based on what’s best for us and our own situations.

  1. Salt … 😉

    I’ve heard this theory many times. From what I’ve read it seems like certain brain cancers respond the best to a non-sugar diet. Still, I find reducing my intake of sugar makes me feel better.

    I have a high blood sugar number that runs in my family. I’m pretty convinced that my blood sugar is killing me.
    Dr. Moyad is great. He used to come to our Gilda’s club meeting every year. Great sense of humor.


    1. Hey Dan!

      Thanks for your comment. Yeah, I like Dr. Moyad. I saw your most recent post last night, and all I can say is thank you for sharing with the rest of us because I know how precious your time is. Wishing you and your family togetherness and peace.
