Gerson and Scientific evidence.
You know as well as I do that unless there is a profit motive then virtually no research is done in that area. The same can be said for Water-only-fasting and Natural Hygiene principles which offer no financial incentive for any research. However, hundreds of thousands of testimonials abound as with many alternatives here on Curezone: me being one of them.
Cancer is cancer whether you call it pancreatic cancer or whatever, the name only differs by its location. This is true for any disease ending in "itis": it is only the location that prefixes the name.
I am not surprised that lumping HFCS with fructose together arrives at the conclusions stated in the study: perhaps they should have conducted separate studies of HFCS and then with carbohydrate complex fructose, and I think the results would have been markedly different.
The link I posted on regarding man has eaten fruit for eons was actually this one...........

Q. "How do you explain the increase in Type II diabetes in the primarily vegetarian country of India? They eat fruits and vegetables - not ham or hot dogs".
A. A largely processed diet, inactivity and obesity.
"The emergence of type 2 diabetes in India, coinciding with the country's rapid economic development in the past several decades, is often characterized as a modern epidemic resulting directly from westernization"

I have been mostly vegan for over 30 years and eat a wide variety of fruits, but cancer-free so far. I wonder how many frugivores contract cancer?
Please do not lump HFCS with fructose from fruits: they are Worlds apart.
"we are now consuming natural fructose as NEVER before that fructose and carbohydrates (which all create Sugar
in the body) are killing us"?
Strange? as the main fuel-source for the body is from carbohydrates.....the body mainly feeds from glucose unless we are in ketosis all of the time by restricting carbs'.
Again do not confuse refined carbs' with complex and unrefined carbs'.
Beer drinking. Now there's a good idea. Probably because it was the only clean source of fluids, unlike the water at that time.
