A higher dose of omega-3, vitamins C and E may boost pancreatic health, according to research in San Francisco. An intake of 850mg omega-3 fatty acids is associated with a 53% reduction of the risk of pancreatic cancer, compared to intakes between 33 and 580mg/day. The International Journal of Cancer also found that higher intake of vitamin C and E may reduce the risk with 31 and 33%. Another research from the University of California showed a 60% higher risk of pancreatic cancer related to intake of saturated fats. Further research will make the case more clear.
