Default Metformin and Cancer

My sister's taking this medication for type2 diabetes. Here's an interesting older article about Metformin and cancer...

There�s an extract of French lilac (Galega officinalis) that�s been attracting a lot of attention lately in the field of oncology. Perhaps the news of yet another �natural� cancer fighting compound is no longer a surprise to readers of this site. But would it surprise you to discover that the particular substance I�m referring to is actually a prescription medication that�s generally used to help manage diabetes? The drug in question is metformin. It�s a medication that was developed over 50 years ago and is often used to combat non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

It also supports cardiovascular health and promotes weight loss/maintenance in those with blood sugar abnormalities and metabolic disorders. It�s estimated that over 35,000,000 prescriptions for metformin were written in 2008 alone. This figure is likely to increase in the future for a few very important reasons. It�s cheaper and more effective than many of the newer medications in its class, and this is one drug that may actually help save lives.
