I'm considering taking Metformin for a possible preventative measure to getting Lung Cancer,my twin. sister just died of Small Cell Lung Cancer that metastasized to her brain.My question is I do not have Diabetes and my Glucose numbers are in the normal range,would there be any negative to taking Metformin as possible preventative to getting Lung Cancer?
Want to take Metformin to prevent lung cancer but do not have diabetes - is it safe for me to take?

I'm not concerned about taking it to loose weight.There's been studies and some research on taking it for a preventative for getting cancer,this is my only concern for taking it.
