How a Low-Carb Diet Affects Cancer Cells
Cancer cells have been observed to use glucose as a source of energy to grow and multiply.
Carbohydrates can be converted into glucose during digestion. Limiting carbohydrate intake in a diet may be an option to consider.
Some research suggests that a low-carbohydrate diet may potentially affect cancer cells by reducing the amount of available glucose.
A low-carbohydrate diet may also help to reduce glucose levels in the body. High levels of circulating glucose have been linked to inflammation, which may worsen certain health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, and epilepsy.
