BREAST CANCER, SUGAR, INSULIN: INCREASED SURVIVAL WITH METFORMIN?

Newer studies reveal that survival of breast cancer is strongly associated with results of a readily available blood test , the blood insulin level. We now know, based on several clinical studies, that insulin supports tumor cell growth not only in the test tube but also in the patient. The commonly used anti-diabetic drug Metformin (Glucophage) appears to be a way to fight back by lowering blood insulin levels.
