Whole-life body composition trajectory and longevity: role of insulin

Bone mass loss is associated with tumor occurrence and residual survival time after 18 months of age (A). Lower panel shows x-ray images of the top 8 and bottom 8 rats (N = 17) on magnitudes of bone mass loss among rats survived after 18 months (B), demonstrating a severe increased tumorigenesis together with cachexia.
