Can a Diabetes Drug Help Prevent Cancer & Improve Survival?

In one of the largest studies of its kind, a team of scientists analyzed cancer risk among 8,000 diabetics treated with the diabetes drug metformin.

Over a 10-year period, they observed a 54% lower incidence of all cancers compared to the general population.

Metformin not only exerted a major protective effect against cancer development, but those who developed cancer exhibited a significantly higher survival rate; including those with malignant cancers of the lung, colon, and breast.

Of equal significance was the finding that the earlier the metformin regimen was initiated, the greater the preventive benefit.
