Below is an excerpt from a recent article in the CrossFit Journal. Click here for the full article.

This year, 1,685,210 people in the United States will get cancer; 595,690 will die from it.

It’s the second-leading cause of death after heart disease, responsible for nearly 1 in 4 deaths in the U.S., and researchers have spent lifetimes studying its countless mutations in search of a cause, pointing their fingers mostly at genetics and physical, chemical and biological carcinogens.

But mounting evidence indicates those aren’t the only devils at work. In 2010, the American Diabetes Association released a report suggesting that people with Type 2 diabetes are “at a significantly higher risk for many forms of cancer,” and that, “Cancer and diabetes are diagnosed within the same individual more frequently than would be expected by chance, even after adjusting for age.”
