UPI features Geoffrey Kabat, Ph.D., and his new research that links high insulin levels to an increased risk for breast cancer in postmenopausal women. Dr. Kabat and his colleagues analyzed data on 5,450 women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative, a large multicenter study investigating the influence of a number of factors on women's health. Notably, the link between elevated insulin level and breast cancer was strongest among lean women and weakest among obese women (who, in general, have higher insulin levels compared with lean women). Dr. Kabat is senior epidemiologist in the department of epidemiology and population health.
