Diabetes Leads to Higher Risk of Breast Cancer

A new study reveals that diabetic postmenopausal women are more likely to develop breast cancer.

A new study published in Cancer Causes and Control reports that postmenopausal women with diabetes were 12-percent more likely to develop breast cancer than non-diabetic postmenopausal women. From closely following the participants (52,657 diabetics and 30,210 non-diabetics), researchers found that diabetes medications were not linked with lowered cancer risk, but diabetes alone was. The American Cancer Society and The American Diabetes Association announced in 2010 that diabetes doubled the likelihood of developing endometrial, liver, and pancreatic cancers, as well as bladder, breast, and colorectal cancers. Proponents of plant-based diets warn that inflammation is named one of the root causes of diabetes, as well as many other chronic diseases, and recommend wholesome, plant-based foods to evade serious illness.
