While there may be no “unscary” cancers, one could argue that pancreatic is low on the list of cancers anyone would like to get. Outcomes are dismal, leading to prevention being the answer.
This particular study found that those patients with more characteristics of metabolic syndreme (prediabetes) had 58% greater risk for development of pancreatic cancer. This is a cancer that most of the evidence is pointing to that can be prevented. This is not the first study finding a link between the way our bodies handle sugar and pancreatic cancer.
I have written before about how strong the links are between pancreatic cancer and diabetes. Considering that I consider diabetes the number one thing our bodies are constantly fighting against, this link with pancreatic cancer makes lifestyle changes that much more critical.
