Endurance Enhancers, High-Fat Diet, Associated With Higher Risk of Pancreatic Cancer
A recent study suggests that high-fat diets and a synthetic material found in unregulated performance enhancers activated a cell nuclear receptor which contributes to the progression of pancreatic cancer. The study, published in the prestigious peer-reviewed paper Nature Communication  was led by Imad Shureiqi, MD, professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School.

People with pancreatic cancer are more likely to need pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy for several reasons. First, pancreatic cancer can itself damage the pancreas and block the flow of pancreatic enzymes into the intestine, which is where food is normally digested. Surgically removing the pancreas and parts of the intestine to treat pancreatic cancer or other types of cancer can also lead to pancreatic enzyme deficiency.

Pancreatic Cancer is On the Rise. So Is Hope for Earlier Detection.
A new discovery from researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centre has clarified the long-established connection between inflammation and pancreatic cancer development. According to a recent study, pancreatic cells display an adaptive response to repeated inflammatory episodes that initially protects against tissue damage but can promote tumour formation in the presence of mutant KRAS gene. A mutant KRAS -- which is found in roughly 95% of all pancreatic cancers -- suppor...

Nourishment for the Pancreatic Cancer Fight
CARROT PURÉE WITH OLIVE OIL AND CILANTRO This is the perfect  dish for  patients facing pancreatic cancer, as it is a well-cooked vegetable dish which is easier to digest and less likely to aggravate digestive issues. The carrots provide an excellent source of beta-carotene. The oil may be reduced if sensitive to fat, or coconut oil may be substituted (which may be more easily absorbed). If you are sensitive to additional herbed flavors, the cilantro can be reduced or...
