"Pancreatic cancer is one of the most fatal types of cancer, with a 5-year survival of about 5.5%."
"High consumption of red meat and/or processed meat has been associated with increased risk of some gastrointestinal cancers, such as colorectal and stomach cancer."
"Whether red & processed meat consumption is a risk factor also for pancreatic cancer remains unclear. We therefore conducted a meta-analysis of studies to examine the associations of red and processed meat consumption with pancreatic cancer risk."
"Findings from this meta-analysis indicate that processed meat consumption is positively associated with pancreatic cancer risk. Red meat consumption was associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer in men."
