The Cancer-Diabetes Connection

Last week the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society published a consensus paper on the links between diabetes and cancer.  The two diseases share many of the same risk factors: overweight and obesity, lack of physical activity and poor diets.

We’ve written about this connection often, over the years.  Here’s a study on pancreatic cancer risk in people detected with diabetes after age 50. 

In August, we’ll release our latest AICR In-Depth background paper for health professionals.  This paper will review the science on the cancer-diabetes connection and provide “bottom line” advice for patients and clients. If you’re a health professional or educator, you can receive AICR In-Depth papers, along with lots of other free information and discounts on bulk purchases of AICR materials.
