Food Therapy: Vegetables and Fruits Intake > 9 Servings Daily In Reduced Risk of Pancreatic cancer

Kyle J. Norton

Intake of Vegetables and Fruits daily and regularly may reduce risk of pancreatic cancer, some renowned institute studies suggested.

Pancreas cancer is a medical condition characterized by uncontrollable cells growth in the pancreas.
at the late stage, the cancer cells may travel to infect other organs and tissues distanced away from the original site. And it is considered as one of most devastating and rapidly fatal cancer.

According to the statistic, the risk of pancreatic cancer, in population is 1.4% with 44000 new cases
diagnosed every year in US alone.

In the investigate the data  of 532 cases of pancreatic cancer, in patients examined between 1995 and 1999 and to clarify the substantial risk of pancreatic cancer, in this group of subjects, the University of California San Franciscoconducted a population-based case-control study to determine the association between vegetables and fruits and pancreatic cancer, with matching 1,701 age- and sex controls. After considering other con founders, researchers filed the following results
1. Intake of more than 9 serving of vegetables and fruit daily showed a substantially reduced risk of pancreatic cancer,in compared to control group.
2. The relative prevalence of pancreatic cancer, was reduced to .49 
3. Intake of bean score a highest relative odd ration of .46 in compared to intake of other vegetables and fruits intake group.

Further analysis of the returned questionnaire, researchers also indicated that risk of pancreatic cancer, reduced substantially to group with intake of more than 9 severing daily in compared group consuming less than five servings per day of total vegetables and fruits.

In support of the above differentiation, researchers at the Mayo Clinic, also conducted a study to examine the risk of pancreas cancer in fruit, vegetable, fiber, and grain consumption of 384 rapidly ascertained cases and 983 controls (frequency matched on age (±5 years), race, sex, and residence), after analyzing the returned completed epidemiological surveys and 144-item food frequency questionnaires, researchers, after adjusting for diabetes or total sugar intake, indicated that in compare to highest to lowest quintiles, intake of citrus, melon, and berries, other fruits, dark green vegetables, deep yellow vegetables, tomato, other vegetables, dry bean and pea, insoluble fiber, soluble fiber daily had a strong effect in reduced risk of pancreatic cancer,.

Additionally the study also emphasized that increased intake of non-whole grains product is associated to positive risk of pancreatic cancer development. In other word, lower intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fiber is associated to pancreatic cancer risk.

Although the study did not directly address the health benefits of dried peas in reduced risk of pancreatic cancer, it is safe to suggested that as a member of bean group, dried peas may induce the same relative odd ratio in compare to control.

More interestingly, in a prospective study of fatal pancreas cancer among 34,000 California Seventh-day Adventists between 1976 and 1983(40 deaths from pancreatic cancer, occurred during the follow-up period) to evaluate whether raw fruits and vegetables consumption has been consistently associated with decreased risk of pancreatic cancer,. after analysis the dietary habits and medical history of all the patients record, researchers insisted that
1. Increasing consumption of vegetarian protein products, beans, lentils, and peas as well as dried fruit was associated with highly significant protective relationships to pancreatic cancer, risk.
2. Premedical condition also increase risk of pancreas cancer
3. Patients with history of surgery for peptic or duodenal ulcer were also at risk of pancreatic cancer development.

The findings suggested that regardless to medical condition and prehistory of surgery, intake of vegetables and fruits daily have a profound effect in reduced risk of cancer incidence in compare to non consuming group.

Dr. Mills PK, the lead author said, "the protective relationships associated with frequent consumption of vegetables and fruits high in protease-inhibitor content are more important than any increase in pancreas cancer risk attendant on frequent consumption of meat or other animal products".

Taking altogether, increasing intake of vegetables and fruits and reducing intake of meat and animal product  daily are necessary to ensure the less prevalence of risk of pancreatic cancer.
