Pancreatic cancer is one of the most formidable types of cancer a patient
and his/her physician must face. These cancers are difficult to treat due
to their inaccessible location, proximity to other vital organs, and inherently
aggressive pattern of growth. Although advances in surgical techniques, radiation,
and chemotherapy have provided incremental improvements in the length and
quality of life, less than 5% of patients with pancreatic cancer will live
beyond 5 years.1 Therefore, it is both surprising
and gratifying that pancreatic cancer should be emerging as a form of cancer
that might be preventable, at least in part through modification of lifestyle
habits such as diet, exercise, and smoking.
