5/13/2011 7:13:00 AM

People with diabetes are at higher risk for certain cancers than those without the blood sugar disease, suggests a new study. Based on data from a telephone survey of nearly 400,000 adults, researchers found 16 out of every 100 diabetic men and 17 out of every 100 diabetic women said they had cancer.
