insulin levels have now been positively identified as
increasing the risk of breast cancer in women.
a very large study of 93,676 women,
it was documented that high insulin levels correlated with
the development of breast cancer.
compared women with the lowest insulin levels to
women with high insulin levels, and concluded that:
is a positive association between insulin levels and risk
for breast cancer.”
actions in this trial focus on controlling and lowering insulin
levels. The researchers stated that interventions that
target insulin and its signaling pathways can help decrease
breast cancer risk in women.
normal non-diabetic women, insulin elevation is caused by
ingesting high glycemic and/or High-Cephalic (insulin stimulating)
foods and beverages.
type 2 diabetic women, insulin levels are over-elevated, causing
weight gain and higher risk for breast cancer, cardiovascular
and other diseases. Type 2 diabetics who consume High Glycemic
and/or High-Cephalic (insulin stimulating) foods or beverages
further aggravate and increase already high insulin levels.
insulin-resistance, and other glycemic-related conditions
are manifested by elevated insulin levels, which also greatly
increases risk of breast cancer in women.
