The Relation of Cancer and Diabetes.

What is the connection between these two facts? You may ask. Cancer cells.

This week’s topic is diabetes and cancer. Let me start with two facts: First, a recent review published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that between 1988 and 2015 there was a 63% percent increase in colorectal cancer among patients aged 20 to 50 in the United States. Second, according to the CDC among adults aged 45 to 64 in the United States 44% percent have pre-diabetes or diabetes. 

What is the connection between these two facts? You may ask. Cancer cells.

Watch this short video where I explain more about this important relationship. Or follow the transcript below.

When cells multiply uncontrollably there are three potential ways in which a person with diabetes can have cancer.

One, cells lining the intestine or replace every five to seven days. Normally, however, if you have chronic inflammation, the self-turnover is faster and some of this new cell could have damaged genes. In other words, mutations could lead to cancer formation. Second, glucose availability promotes cancer cell multiplication because cancer cells use glucose to provide energy. Third, insulin promotes the growth of all cells including that of cancer. This means controlling blood sugar through dietary means rather than using insulin is one way to reduce your chances of developing colorectal glands. How to accomplish this is explained in my book surviving cancer.  


When Your Child Has Cancer: Insights and Information to Empower Parents

I hope you help me share that my fourth book is now available on Amazon, the second on the topic of cancer. If you are the parent of a child with cancer, the questions and feelings you have can be overwhelming. In this insightful and thoughtful book, you will find information, hope, advice, and solace.

When Your Child Has Cancer expertly guides you to understand childhood cancer. I offer two new scientific theories to explain how the leading types of childhood cancers might occur, given that children have not lived long enough to develop the number of gene mutations that usually cause adult cancers. You will learn how you as parents can care for your child with cancer.

Most importantly, you will learn how your child’s diet can be a key corollary element in controlling cancer along with the medical treatments.

Surviving Cancer

Surviving Cancer: A New Perspective on Why Cancer Happens & Your Key Strategies for a Healthy Life 

This book will be an invaluable resource for anyone who has already been diagnosed with cancer localized to a single site of origin and not yet colonized in another part of the body. It is also for anyone who believes they are at risk of cancer due to heredity, lifestyle, working conditions, stress levels, or for any other reason.

And finally, this book is especially important for anyone with Type 2 diabetes, a population that is twice as likely to develop certain types of cancer compared to individuals who do not have diabetes.
