Pancreatic cancer is on the rise. It is said to become the second leading cancer-related cause of death by 2030. These predictions are astounding. The dismal early detection rates and low survival rates makes this really bad news.
Currently only 5% survive to their five year anniversary. Which means that 95% of those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer lose their lives regardless if what type of therapy they use. Few cancers have this saddening statistic.
So what do we do now?
One word. Prevention! As many researchers have suggested, pancreatic cancer can be prevented with many compounds in food. We intuitively know that better food equals better health. Now that there’s scientific evidence that whole foods can alter the body’s chemistry positively, there’s no reason not to incorporate these foods into our diet immediately.
