Whenever I'm sick I hear people say "Don't eat sugar. Sugar feeds infection". It seems a well-known concepts:
Recently, I had a throat infection, it seemed to be going away and I had a piece of (sugary, delicious) cake and got much, much worse.
But when I asked my doctor about it he said, "sugar doesn't feed infection and it was probably circumstancial".
Does sugar feed infection? For specificity, lets say refined cane sugar.
