Dietary patterns and risk of pancreatic cancer: a systematic review.

​Individuals who adhere to a western dietary pattern may have a higher tendency of developing pancreatic cancer than their counterparts on diets loaded with fruits, vitamins, vegetables, and fiber.

This study evaluated the relationship of diet to the development and prevention of pancreatic cancer. Researchers systematically reviewed data extracted from studies that examined how dietary patterns affect pancreatic cancer risk.

Researchers discovered that the chances of developing pancreatic cancer were higher in individuals who followed a western dietary pattern than in persons on diets rich in fruits, vegetables, vitamins, and fiber. The results of this study show that healthy dietary choices may contribute positively to the prevention of pancreatic cancer.
