    Cancer Risk


    I was considering using IGF sometime in the near future. The question I am curious about does IGF increase the risk of cancer. I know many cancers like prostate and colon produce large amounts of IGF. Does anyone think this increase in IGF could increase the chance of DNA replication errors? I'm wondering if anyone has read anything on the subject. I did a search and did not find much on the site.

    No. Additional IGF-1 *CANNOT* induce DNA replication error.
