    • Khilanand Joshi says:

      As per my understanding glucose is the only source of energy for cancer cells and glucose feeds to the cancer cells, hence taking Glucon D or any other drink that has glucose is harmful for cancer patients. So my suggestion is not to give Glucon D to Cancer patients. Sweetness in fruits is because of Fructose and that type of glucose is never harmful for anybody. So instead of giving Glucon D I would suggest to give fresh fruit juices and that are never harmful.

      See, much of the sugar gets absorbed by body meanwhile before you drink more water to neutralize it. Therefore, you must reduce your sugar intake anyhow.
