In some preliminary research on the role of growth hormone with respect to
its effects on cancerous cells, is it correct to assume that oncogenes, the
 so-called "cancer-causing" gene is a growth hormone stimulant?  If not, how
is there a connection between growth hormone and cancer???  I have heard
conflicting studies, and they seem to tie glucose into the process...where does
 this sugar come into play (other than the fact that the cell needs glucose's
 energy to divide in the first place.)  Thanks for any help you may be able to
 give me...
