Pancreatic Cancer Treatment that Works

green tea 200x300 Pancreatic Cancer Treatment that Works Substances found in green tea and high fiber foods have been found highly effective in the treatment and prevention of pancreatic cancer, an extremely virulent form of disease with few effective treatments. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., with a 5-year survival rate of less than 5%. Any indication of an effective preventive and treatment is very good news.

A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer generally comes only in its late stages since there are few noticeable symptoms during the early period of the disease. Patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive an average of only 10 months following diagnosis. One of every 36 men will contract the disease in his lifetimes. For women, the incidence is one in every 195.

Antioxidant cocktail slashes pancreatic cancer risk by up to two thirds

Pancreatic cancer is a particularly deadly form of the disease that takes the lives of nearly 40,000 people in the US each year. Mortality rates for pancreatic cancer are high (five year survival rate is less than three percent) as the disease is typically not suspected or diagnosed until it has progressed to an advanced stage and metastasized to other major organs. Similar to other cancers, pancreatic cancer develops as a result of dietary digressions after the large exocrine gland fails to meet metabolic demands from a diet high in processed, hormone-infused animal protein, hydrogenated fats and sugar.
