Though insulin is known as the hormone that reduces blood sugar,
insulin has many other important functions.
potentially deadly function has to do with the replacement of
cells. Insulin is what doctors call a mitogenic hormone which
means it helps the body create new cells. The human body is a
community of cells. As cells age and wear out they need to be
replaced with fresh new cells. In a healthy, normal body
insulin promotes the creation of fresh new replacement cells the
body needs to maintain itself.
lifespan of cells varies widely. The epithelial cells that line
your mouth die off and need to be replaced on a rapid one to three day cycle. While the
bone cells in your thigh bone last much longer - up to three
years. Look at it this way - every cell in your body is replaced
at least every three years.
diabetics and pre-diabetics the level of insulin circulating in
the blood rises too high. This can cause cells you don't want to
reproduce to spring into action. I'm talking about dormant,
inactive cancer cells.
all have hundreds of seed potentially cancerous cancer cells scattered all over our
bodies. Under normal circumstance these cells stay in an
state. But should your insulin level climb too high, these cells
begin to reproduce and this can cause the growth of dangerous cancerous
Certain kinds of cancer belong to a class called
"insulin-sensitive cancers". The list includes breast cancer,
colon cancer, pancreatic cancer and prostate cancer.
If the insulin level remains high over time, those now active
tumor cells will spread around the body through a process
doctors call metastasis. If the cancer spreads into the lymph
system or the liver it will drastically reduce your odds of
Studies have shown that people with the
elevated insulin levels are approximately twice as likely to be
diagnosed with cancer.
And if that's isn't bad enough - these
high insulin individuals are also half as likely to respond to
chemo and radiation therapy and achieve remission or cure.
remission should occur, a high insulin level dramatically
increases the risk of a recurrence of the cancer. It's a sad
fact that despite all this proof, doctors continue to prescribe
two different classes of diabetes drugs that increase the blood
