Can Maple Syrup Kill Cancer?

Gosh, I sure hope so, as I use it to sweeten my daily latte.

And I don’t use much–maybe a tablespoon.  Just enough to take the edge off the espresso’s bitterness.

Basically, I use local, unheated honey and maple syrup to sweeten anything, and I’ve found as my diet has included more healthy, unsaturated fats, I am not drawn to sweets or baked goods.  It’s an interesting switchover…

Probably the only sugar that comes into the house is the sugar I use to make syrup for the hummingbirds.  I recently bought a new 5-lb. bag, only to find half of one buried among the glass jars in the pantry.  It was hard as a rock from sitting unused.

Here’s a blurb from this article:

New research suggests that maple syrup, despite being a concentrated source of “sugar,” possesses significant anti-cancer properties…

Note the term “suggests.”  But one can hope…

Maple syrup does have an interesting mineral load, but like any sweetner, should not be overused.
