Here is another unusual report linking insulin resistance and high insulin levels to cancer. We have known for years that insulin resistance is worse in the black population and accounts for the increase in chronic disease in this population. This report further underscores the theory that cancer results from the heightened growth promotion of insulin.
In gynecology, this has been a philosophy for a great many years with endometrial cancer. Type II diabetics have a much higher incidence. In the end, we will understand that most if not all cancer types are caused by insulin. If one wants to avoid cancer, think of a ketogenic diet.
