Another reason for the low survival rate of persons with pancreatic cancer is because the symptoms of pancreatic cancer mimic symptoms of other conditions and appear in the later stages of the disease. These symptoms include abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, problems with sugar metabolism, and difficulty digesting fatty foods. Don’t wait for symptoms make lifestyle changes today to help prevent cancer.
We need to understand that anyone can get pancreatic cancer and many people who get pancreatic cancer have no risk factors. We all should take as many precautions as possible including making lifestyle improvements including nutrition and exercise. As with any cancer prevention is the key. Knowing and avoiding the following risk factors would be a good place to start.
While there are no magic bullets, a healthy lifestyle can help prevent-pancreatic-cancer including a change in eating habits. We have known for a long time that people who eat the most fruits and vegetables and other plant foods are less likely to get cancer. Fruits and vegetables are a significant foundation for an anticancer diet.
A diet high in animal products, particularly animal fat, can increase cancer risk as does a diet high in sugar. Both can result in an acidic body-pH-balance creating a cancer promoting environment (sugar feeds cancer). Also a prolonged high intake of sugar and resulting high levels of insulin stresses the pancreas.
We can’t control some risk factors such as family history, age and gender but we can control our lifestyle, which may help prevent-pancreatic-cancer in spite of these risk factors. Eating spinach, kale and other dark green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower may lower the risk of cancer as will sweet potatoes, carrots and onions. Also avoid dangerous food additives. Some food additives have been implicated in such chronic diseases as cancer, type II diabetes, heart disease, hypothyroidism, hypertension and obesity.
Eating natural foods is always best but dietary supplements including a multivitamin & mineral compound, Curcumin, Pomegranate extract, and grape seed extract may provide the body the help it needs to prevent-pancreatic-cancer. Be sure to consult with your physician before starting any nutritional supplementation program. Nutritional supplements do not cure or prevent illness and disease. They only give the body the extra nutrition it needs to take care of itself! A healthy lifestyle starts with good nutrition.
