Rave — Ain’t she sweet?
Well, no, I’m not really. But I just got the news I might be able to participate in the clinical trial for Metformin, a drug normally used for diabetes — or “the sugar,” as my West Virginia relatives used to call the condition.

Apparently, Metformin may be able to help prevent breast cancer relapses by killing cancer stem cells. (See this article by WebMD if you’re interested in details: http://www.webmd.com/breast-cancer/news/20090914/diabetes-drug-fights-breast-cancer.)

There is also some indications that it can help with weight loss.
Heck, yeah! I’ll jump on that bandwagon! Now I just need to hope I’m put not put in the placebo group.
