Nutrients from Fruit and Vegetable Consumption Reduce the Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

In a study involving 384 patients with pancreatic cancer and 983 controls, a significant inverse association was found between pancreatic cancer and nutrient/supplement groupings in a dose-dependent manner. Supplements included were: magnesium, potassium, selenium, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin, niacin, total alpha-tocopherol, total vitamin A activity, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.

The authors conclude, "...most nutrients obtained through consumption of fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of developing pancreatic cancer."
