A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that people with diabetes faced an increased risk of death from cancer. Furthermore, the risk of dying rose with increased fasting blood sugar level in non-diabetics. The highest fasting glucose level (over 140mg/dL) was associated with higher death rates from all cancers combined. The strongest cancer links in women were associated with liver and cervical cancer. The strongest links in men were associated with pancreatic cancer followed by esophageal, liver, rectal and colon cancer. The study involved nearly 1.3 people over 10 years.
