Why Cancer and Diabetes May Have a Similar Etiology
Diabetes and Cancer: How The Two Are Connected
Diabetes and cancer are two of the leading causes of death worldwide. The mere mention of either disease can strike fear in anyone’s heart. It is because no one is immune from either disease. Young or old, male or female, everyone is at risk. The statistics released by the International Diabetes Federation reveals the growing threat of diabetes worldwide with 425 million adults affected by it in 2017. An additional 1,106,500 children were afflicted. The forecast for diabetes cases gets worse. The report suggests the number would go up to 629 million by 2045.
The figures for cancer are equally alarming. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the cause of 1 in 6 deaths worldwide. It accounted for 8.8 million deaths in 2015. The grim forecast for new cancer cases in the next 20 years points to an increase of almost 70%.
Yet what could be worse than diabetes or cancer? Perhaps, it would be the discovery of a possible link between the two conditions. While 1.6 million deaths every year can be linked to diabetes, it is important to clarify how the two may intertwine. 2
The Link Between Diabetes And Cancer
A report from the American Diabetes Association together with the American Cancer Society looked into the connection between diabetes and cancer back in 2010.3 Based on its findings, it appears their link shows an increased risk of certain cancers as a consequence of diabetes and its complications.
From a frequency perspective virtually all Americas have an e coli infection of the pancreas impacting mitochondrial function which affects insulin production and causes blood sugar problems. Cancer is a disease of dysfunctional mitochondria caused primarily by the Rife BX BY organism (bacillus licheniformis). Failing mitochondria cause energy production to go anerobic leading to DNA mutations. It makes sense that the two are linked as mitochondria are failing in both cases.
