PANCREATIC CANCER

  • Researchers pooled data from 14 prospective cohort studies to study the relationship between drinking coffee, tea, and sugar-sweetened carbonated soft drinks and risk of developing pancreatic cancer. Among these participants, drinking tea, coffee, or sugar-sweetened carbonated soft drinks was not associated with pancreatic cancer risk. Read more here.

  • A 2011 study combined data from the CTS and 13 other cohort studies to investigate whether body sized increased pancreatic cancer risk. In this study, BMI and waist to hip ratio were both positively associated with pancreatic cancer risk. Participants whose BMI ≥ 30 when they joined their respective studies had a 47% higher risk of pancreatic cancer than participants whose BMI was normal.  Read more here.

  • Research using data from the CTS and 13 other prospective cohort studies suggested that participants who consumed 30 or more grams of alcohol per day had a modestly increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Read more here.

  • Researchers combined data from the CTS and 13 other prospective cohort studies to examine whether consuming dairy products increased participant’s risk of pancreatic cancer. Within these studies, participants’ consumption of dairy foods, calcium, or vitamin D was not associated with their risk of pancreatic cancer.  Read more here.

  • By combining data from the CTS and 13 other prospective cohort studies from North America, Europe, and Australia, researchers found that the amount of fruits and vegetables participants ate during adulthood did not reduce their risk of pancreatic cancer.  Read more here.

  • A 2011 study that combined data from the CTS and 14 other studies found folate intake was not associated with risk of pancreatic cancer. Read more here.
