Pancreatic Cancer Diet:
Animal Fat Increases Risk of Pancreatic Cancer
Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist - July 3, 2009
Researchers found high intake of fat from red meat and dairy products increase
the risk of pancreatic cancer.
Researchers analyzed the diet of 500,000
people in 1995 and 1996. Participants were followed for an average of six years. Of those followed 1,337 were
diagnosed with cancer. Total fat, saturated fat and monounsaturated fat from red meat and dairy increased the
risk of pancreatic cancer.
Men with the highest level of fat consumption had a 53 percent higher rate of
pancreatic cancer than the men with the lowest total fat consumption. Women with the highest level of fat
consumption had a 23 percent higher rate of pancreatic cancer than the men with the lowest total fat

It is possible that other lifestyle or dietary choices associated or related to the
red meat and dairy intake may have contributed to the increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Researchers did not
evaluate other lifestyle and dietary habits. Animal fat (omega-6) is inflammatory and increases COX2 and
PGE2 expression and pancreatic cancer growth.
Additional research in 2015 shows there is a sugar in red meat
that may increase the risk of many cancer. Click here to learn more about Red Meat and Cancer.
