Why would I devote an entire page on the subject of Diabetes on what is principally a cancer blog? The reason is that there is emerging a well-researched "link" between Diabetes and Cancer. Most people do not know that there are HIGH correlations between Diabetes, Obesity, and Cancer.
Cancerous cells tend to consume sugar at a rate 10 to 12 times faster than normal healthy cells, resulting in cancer growth. Another key factor is that sugar is acidic and cancerous cells thrive in acidic environments. In addition, when we consume sugar, the pancreas releases insulin into the body.
Insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF) receptors are found in most cancer cells. When there is too much insulin released, not only does this lead to Type 2 diabetes, but insulin also stimulates cell growth and could be causative of cancers, including prostate, pancreas, endometrium, and breast. Reference this 2010 Report published jointly by the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society on the common links between Diabetes and Cancer.
An alarming statistic is that 1 in 2 of us ALREADY has Diabetes, or is at some stage of being Pre-Diabetic. Sadly, 70% of us who have it… don’t even know it! The following information is important because 2 out of 3 of us who have diabetes will die of a heart attack or develop a high risk for an aggressive form of cancer tumor growth.
Diabetes is no joke! It’s now a Global Pandemic. In fact it’s just been called “The Black Death of the 21st Century!” by a leading scientist from Oxford University.
