The research, performed at the National University of Singapore's Cancer Science Institute of Singapore, and led by professor Ashok Venkitaraman and Li Ren Kong, a senior research fellow at the University of Singapore, found a chemical released when the body breaks down sugar also suppresses a gene expression that prevents the formation of tumors. This discovery provides valuable insights into how one's dietary habits can impact their risk of developing cancer and forges a clear path to understanding how to reverse that risk with food choices.
