I'm a lightweight. I'd be sick before I could drink anywhere near that much. (Being low carb reduces tolerance as well.)

Not insulin, per se. Chronic hyperinsulinemia. Insulin is a necessary and wonderful hormone -- when in the right amount at the right time.

Multiple papers have made these connections between insulin and each, separate condition. But I rarely see it all synthesized in one place.

Who was it who said “Insulin is Miracle-Gro for your fat cells?” Grow, grow, grow. We see a theme here, yes? Good, then it’s not just me.

Cancer = massive, massive hyperplasia/GROWTH (in whatever tissue is affected).
