High blood glucose levels — a hallmark of type 2 diabetes — is linked with a higher risk of colorectal cancer, according to a new study published online in the “British Journal of Cancer.”

By the end of the 12-year period, 81 women had developed colorectal cancer. Researchers found Continue reading
