The Diabetes-Cancer Connection
"Evidence continues to accumulate that obesity raises a person’s risk for developing many types of cancer, worsens prognosis for some patients and compromises health and well-being of cancer survivors. Given the large increases in obesity rates over the past 30 years, it is likely there will be a negative impact on survival and quality of life unless we take action to address the problem."
- Karen Basen-Engquist, Ph.D., Director, Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship and professor of Behavioral Science.
As you know, natural preventative health is my life's work. There are no more pressing health issues in our country than the issues of obesity, diabetes and cancer.
I'm sick to my stomach when I see the lines at fast-food restaurants and the people waddling up to the lines to buy their dead animal sandwiches and massive cups, filled to the brim with sugar and high-fructose corn syrup.
These people are God's children, led to the slaughter by advertising companies and cheap, fake food
Millions of people in our country are overweight or obese. Right now, no state has an obesity rate less than 20%, and several have rates over than 35%! In Philadelphia, the adult obesity rate is a staggering 66%, and the childhood rate has hovered around 40%.
By 2030, if this trend continues, 13 states will have obesity rates over 60%, leading to approximately 500,000 additional Cancer cases.
The prognosis is not good. People need to stop eating at fast-food joints, go buy some produce and get off their very fat butts and go for a walk. One research study said stated, if overweight people each lost 2 lbs each, 100,000 cases of cancer could be avoided.
I have something to say today that every person in our entire nation needs to hear.
It's not too late!
If you or your overweight or diabetic loved one follows exactly what I'm about to tell you, they will not only lose weight, it's more than possible they can reverse their diabetes and avoid cancer.
Together, we can kick obesity, diabetes and cancer directly in the arse!
Insulin Resistance Linked to Cancer
Evidence linking diabetes and high insulin levels to certain cancers has grown stronger over the past several years, leading scientists to investigate potential mechanisms.
A growing body of evidence is finding that having diabetes or signs of insulin resistance may lead to an increased risk of certain cancers. The connection is strongest among certain types of cancers, including kidney, pancreatic and colorectal.
“The trend emerging [in this area] is that the type 2 diabetes associated with high insulin levels is the biggest problem relating to cancer risk,” said Michael Pollak, M.D., a professor at the Department of Oncology and Director of the Cancer Prevention Research Unit at McGill University.
But it’s not just type 2 diabetes, he added, this link is evident for everyone with pre-diabetes, which is a much larger group.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 40 percent of Americans – 41 million people – are estimated to have pre-diabetes, a condition that increases the risk of developing diabetes.
Hyperinsulinemia, too much insulin in the blood, is a sign of pre-diabetes. People can be unaware they have pre-diabetes for years before symptoms and rising glucose levels result in a diabetes diagnosis.
Hyperinsulinemia, Type II diabetes and cancer all share a major risk factor: high body fat. AICR’s expert report found that high body fat is convincingly linked to increased risk of several cancers, including pancreatic and colorectal.
The hormonal changes spurred by high body fat may be leading to increased risk of cancer and type 2 diabetes. Hyperinsulinemia could also act independent of body fat to increase cancer risk. Yet insulin, which stimulates cell proliferation and growth, appears to be one of the key mediators.
Some of the strongest findings relating to diabetes, hyperinsulinemia and cancer risk relate to colorectal cancer. University of Minnesota researchers found women diagnosed with diabetes had a 50 percent higher chance of developing colorectal cancer than non-diabetic women.
For now, researchers know that obesity is tied to hyperinsulinemia and type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse states: Losing at least 5 to 10 percent of a person’s starting weight can prevent or delay diabetes or even reverse prediabetes.
“This is tied in to bad nutritional habits, excess energy intake and a sedentary lifestyle,” said Dr. Pollak. The work in progress is exciting, he says, but “there’s something people can do about their risk now.”
1 + 1 is Greater than 2
Dr. Pollack was absolutely right! There things you can do right now - today - to lower your risk of obesity, diabetes, cancer and death, even if you've already been diagnosed.
Go on a walk! Just going on a walk every day for 30 minutes will get you on the road to recovery. And, it goes without saying, stop eating at fast food restaurants and drinking cancer soda, walk to the market, buy some produce and fruit and eat it for a week or, better yet, a month straight. By the end of the month, you will not only feel like a new person, you'll probably have lost 5-10 pounds!
On top of these easily implemented first steps,Mother Nature has provided us with a big, big cupboard full of disease and diabetes fighting compounds, and I dug into it with glee. We put everything but the kitchen sink in our DiaBesity blood sugar control formula!
- Chromium is the miracle mineral that controls blood sugar. Yes, controls blood sugar, and it's essential for the pancreas to make insulin. Why doesn't McDiabetes, Coke and Pepsi add this to their junk food and drinks?
- Vanadium is another miracle mineral few people know about. It mimics every aspect of insuln in the body. Together, Chromium and Vanadium can also lower blood pressure! Talk about the icing on the cake!
- Gymnemma Sylvreste is known as the sugar killer in India, and explains why diabetes is nearly unheard of in India.
Together, Chromium and Vanadium can also lower Blood Pressure! Talk about the icing on the cake!
Gymnemma Sylvreste answers the question, “Why doesn’t anyone in India have Diabetes?” It’s because of this amazing plant, known as “the sugar killer”. Pretty good thing to include this in our formula.
These 3 Powerful Ingredients are Just the Beginning
- Selenomethionine, the most absorbable form of selenium, a mineral antioxidant that keeps glucose in a normal range
- American Ginseng is beneficial for neuropathy and glucose homeostasis
- Alpha Lipoic Acid, prickly pear, fenugreek and bitter melon, all aid with glycemia
- Cinnamon has a beneficial effect on HbAlc (an important blood glucose/insulin number) and triglyceride levels
- Bupleurum, used for thousands of years to treat Liver inflammation and other Liver problems.
- N-Acetyl-Cysteine, or NAC, an amino acid is a powerful liver anti-oxidant and detoxifier - together, they provide superb liver protection.
- In addition to all this, we include Monk Root, Elecampane Root, Alpha Lipolic Acid, Bitter Mellon Fruit, Indian Kino Bark and Heartwood, Juniper Berry extract and Licorice, to create the premiere formula, dedicated to conquering DiaBesity in this generation.
When combined with a sensible, plant-based diet, DiaBesity aids the body in lowering blood sugar, blood pressure levels by supporting body's natural glucose metabolism and insulin response.

Add DIM For a Knock-Out Combo
DIM is a powerful, natural phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables and the most active indole in regards to estrogen.
DIM is the dietary connection to a better metabolism, the breakdown and synthesis of substances in the body, by adjusting the balance between estrogen and its metabolites, hormones that are active in both sexes.
Healthy hormonal balance is the key to weight loss. Maybe you have experienced this? You are eating healthy, exercising every day, doing everything you know to do, and still you can't lose weight. You might even be gaining! This is because you have unbalanced hormones. Together with continued exercise, DIM provides the best hormonal balance to create the protein machinery for active fat utilization.
Recently, we've been talking a lot about this fantastic, miraculous formula and all it does in the body. Hormone balance and weight loss are spectacular, but read the article, Miracle Estrogen "Reset" Formula to learn more about how DIM causes cancer cells to commit suicide by choking off their oxygen supply and freezing them in their tracks.
