High estrogen and insulin associated with breast cancer growth in diabetes & obesity

High estrogen and insulin associated with breast cancer growth in diabetes & obesity

[Rhonda]: I was reading, I think it may be the American Cancer Association had published some statistics on how obesity can increase the risk of breast cancer by twofold.

Insulin, carbohydrates and the IGF-1 pathway’s role in cancer and aging | Peter Attia

Insulin, carbohydrates and the IGF-1 pathway’s role in cancer and aging | Peter Attia

[Peter]: Okay. So that’s the easy story. Now the hard one, IGF. Okay. So two schools of thought on this, I am in one camp but I will acknowledge the other camp. One camp says IGF-1 is driven exclusively by amino acids. The other camp says, no, it’s actually driven by amino acids and carbohydrates. And carbohydrates indirectly via insulin. So… [Rhonda]: Why are those mutually exclusive? I mean… [Peter]:…
