Omega-3's, Vitamins C and E Boost Pancreatic Health

Increased consumption of omega-3 fats, and vitamins C and E may reduce your risk of pancreatic cancer by over 30 percent.

Research found that consuming at least 850 milligrams of omega-3 fats acids per day was associated with a 53 percent reduction in the risk of pancreatic cancer. The highest average intakes of vitamin C and E were associated with 31 and 33 percent reductions, respectively.

However, according to NutraIngredients:

“On the flip side, researchers ... report that high intakes of saturated fats and certain monounsaturated fatty acids may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer -- the fourth most common cause of cancer mortality in the US and the cause of 33,400 deaths among men and women in 2007.”
