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 my nutritarian diet-style and protocols for diabetes, a Type 2 diabetic would not need an insulin-based medication. In fact, over 60% of diabetics who follow my protocol no longer need any medication at all. A Type 1 diabetic following my nutritarian diet-style would only have half the insulin requirements, without the highs and lows, which would signifacantly extend their lifespan and reduce complications.

Having a child with type 1 diabetes, I've witnessed first- hand how wonderful blood sugar numbers stablize when one follows Dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian way of eating.

Unfortunately, mainstream diabetic doctors, educators and literature produced by the diabetic industry put more emphasis on the "eating anything you want ~ just cover with insulin" mentality.

As a nation, we are so blessed to have the *Fuhrmans pioneering the way for many to live a life free from diabetes, and greatly reducing the complications of those who do have the disease.

May none of us take the gift of excellent health for granted. A life free from diabetes is a priceless treasure beyond words.

*(Fuhrmans plural - Dr. Fuhrman does the scientific/medical research and patient care, but it takes a great wife to support such tireless endeavors! Thanks to both for my own life saved from a future of the nasty disease and its many complications.)

Hi Emily, I am wondering if you would have time to give a bit of detailed advice about diet and type 1 diabetes. I have close friends whose 3 year old developed type 1 diabetes about 4 months ago and it has been and continues to be extremely stressful with lots of highs and lows. Watching from the outside I have to wonder about the advice that they are getting, as the mother, who is a perfectionist, still can't get it right and it is so distressful for her as she is taking responsibility for damaging her daughter everytime there is a low, low. I am new on ETL and she has read the book, but not with a mind to applying it wholeheartedly to her daughter, the reason for this I think is that it doesn't directly correlate to type 1 diabetes and it perhaps contradicts the dietary information that they are getting. If you could please help, it would be sincerely greatly appreciated.
