I don't remember where I heard it, but is there a connection between the long term use of manmade insulin and the advent of pancreatic cancer?

I have not seen any "credible" studies that reveal this connection. The FDA is always monitoring studies that can compromise human safety. You can call the insulin manufacturers themselves and they can provide you information on all their human studies to put your mind at ease.
