Sugar Free Sunday and wait, what… Cancer?

Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration to start the week right? You bet!

The research that Sugar can cause Cancer (for the skeptics, if not cause then propagate it), is just plain old shocking! Some of you’ll might go “Hmm… I already knew that”… I didn’t! I’m still freaked after researching this topic for an hour. The New York Times article is a really long one, so I’ll let you go and get started on the reading list below:

So, while I grab my wits and try and digest this new found information, I leave you with these articles and a couple of questions. How much sugar do you really consume everyday? And, do you think it is time you went sugar free?

How do you participate in the virtual potluck?

  • Link your recipe post (NOT your homepage) if it does not use refined sugar. Your blog does not have to be entirely sugar free, just the dish you’re sharing!
  • Please link back to this get-together somewhere in your post’s text. It’s a great way to invite your readers to the fun!
  • Want to make something sweet without using refined sugar? Just check out all the ways to satisfy your sweet tooth without refined sugar here.
  • Your link doesn’t have to be to a sweet dish! We love to see your sugar free appetizers, entrees, soups, snacks — well — you get the idea!
  • Please don’t link to carnivals or giveaways. This is a party; bring a dish to share!
  • In the ‘Name’ field, please enter who you are and what you’re linking. For example Sonia would put: Bean Kale Pasta Soup [Sonia @ Flip Cookbook]
  • It’s not a party if no one chats! Please join the conversation by leaving a message in the comments section below. Also make sure you have the ‘Notify Me’ checkbox selected so that you can listen as well!
  • Sign up for free to our new venture Velvet Aroma. It’s a visual way to read the blogs you love and really bring their recipes into your kitchen.

We’re so excited to see what you’re cooking….. Sugar Free!

    Thank you for highlighting the sugar/cancer link! Not only is sugar linked to cancer but this year I also discovered that polyunsaturated vegetable oils have been linked too! Have you read “The China Study”?, this book lays out the case for the dairy/cancer link, though many have pulled the theory to pieces. However it’s all horrifying stuff! Great post!

      Thanks Vicky! Yep when I was researching on the sugar/cancer link I read about the polyunsaturated vegetable oils too. Essentially anything that creates insulin resistance can lead to cancer and these 2 seem to be leading in that category!
