Interview with Miriam Vincent (28 Minutes)
Miriam Vincent is an award-winning scientist and clinician at SUNY Downstate in New York. In this extended interview, she explains why, in susceptible people, raised blood sugar levels can kill the Beta Cells that produce the life-giving hormone, insulin. She explains how reducing blood sugar levels can allow the Beta Cells to regenerate. Miriam also shares how an undiagnosed intolerance for glutens (celiac disease) triggered a nearly fatal brush with the cancer, lymphoma, and how surviving this crisis helped inform her awareness of a link between diabetes and cancer.
