At the other end of the spectrum, there’s a misconception that sugar feeds the cancer cells in a patients’ system. This is an oversimplification and should be cleared up. “Sugar” is a broad term, ranging from simple sugars found in plants to candies and sweets solely made out of glucose and fructose.

All sugars are carbohydrates, and whether you’re eating a delicious dessert or eating an apple, these carbs get broken down and release glucose and fructose through your body.
