Insulin May Pose Increased Cancer Risk for Diabetics

Diabetics who take insulin-type drugs appear to be more prone to increased rates of cancer diagnosis, according to several prominent researchers who spoke at a press conference at the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes. The concerns were first raised by German researchers in a data base analysis submitted in 2008, which linked an insulin-based medication to increased cancer risk. The researchers generally agreed that insulins may promote cancer through their actions as growth factors.
The message here is that when you follow Dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian diet-style and protocols for diabetes, a Type 2 diabetic would not need an insulin-based medication. In fact, 60% of diabetics who follow Dr. Fuhrman's protocol no longer need any medication at all. A Type 1 diabetic following Dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian diet-style would only have half the insulin requirements, without the highs and lows, which would help to extend their lifespan.
