Pancreatic cancer

Description

Pancreatic Cancer is a form of Cancer involving the growth/development of malignant tumour(s) in the Pancreas. Until the tumour grows large, there are no symptoms. Pancreatic Cancer usually metastasizes to the Lymph Nodes, Liver or Lungs before it is detected.

A good protocol to follow:
n-Acetyl-cysteine – One capsule thre times a day
Anti-Oxidants – 3 capsules daily
Pre-Probiotics – One capsule in the morning

Inositol – one capsule three times a day
Curcumin – One capsule twice a day
Quercetin – One capsule thre times a day
Co-enzyme Q10 – One capsule twice a day
Complete Life – Two capsules daily

Omega 3 fish oils – One capsule twice a day

Prevalence

Pancreatic Cancer is the tenth most commonly occurring type of Cancer in women.
Pancreatic Cancer is the fifth most prevalent cause of fatal Cancer.
Pancreatic Cancer accounts for 2% of all cases of Cancer in men and accounts for 4% of Cancer deaths in men (in the USA in 1994).
Pancreatic Cancer accounts for 2% of all cases of Cancer in women and accounts for 5% of Cancer deaths in women (in the USA in 1994).

Pancreatic Cancer is often lethal (it usually kills 3 to 12 months after diagnosis). Less than 1% of pancreatic cancer patients live for more than five years after diagnosis.

These Substances may Prevent or Treat Pancreatic Cancer

Amino Acids

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) may inhibit the further progression of Pancreatic Cancer. references

Carotenoids

Alpha-Carotene may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. [more info]
Lycopene may protect against Pancreatic Cancer (people with the lowest levels of serum Lycopene have a 500% greater risk of developing Pancreatic Cancer compared with those who consume higher amounts of Lycopene). references

Enzymes

Pancreatic Enzymes may prolong survival and retard tumor growth in Pancreatic Cancer patients. references

Hormones

Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEAS) may suppress the proliferation of the Cancer cells involved in Pancreatic Cancer (by inhibiting the Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) enzyme). references

Lipids

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) may facilitate the apoptosis of Pancreatic Cancer cells. references
Limonene may prevent the development of Pancreatic Cancer and causes the regression of existing Pancreatic Cancer. references
Perillyl Alcohol may inhibit the ability of carcinogens to cause Pancreatic Cancer. references

Microorganisms

Bifidobacteria bifidus may inhibit the further development of Pancreatic Cancer. references

Minerals

Selenium may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references

Organic Acids

Inositol Hexaphosphate may be useful for the treatment of Pancreatic Cancer (according to anecdotal reports). references

Pharmaceutical Drugs

Aspirin may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
COX-2 Inhibitors may help to prevent and treat Pancreatic Cancer. [more info]
Octreotide has stabilized the condition of some Pancreatic Cancer patients (and is presently undergoing further clinical trials for the treatment of Pancreatic Cancer). [more info]

Rubitecan may prolong survival in Pancreatic Cancer patients. references

Polyphenols

Curcumin may inhibit the growth of Pancreatic Cancer. references
Genistein may help to prevent and treat Pancreatic Cancer. references
Quercetin may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer and stimulates the apoptosis (cell death) of Pancreatic Cancer cells. references

Resveratrol may help to prevent and treat Pancreatic Cancer (due to its ability to stimulate the apoptosis (cell death) of Pancreatic Cancer cells. references

Proteins

Lactoferrin may suppress the growth of Pancreatic Cancer cells. references

Quinones

Coenzyme Q10 may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer and increases the life expectancy of Pancreatic Cancer patients. references

Vitamins

Folic Acid may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
Vitamin B6 may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
Vitamin C may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
Vitamin D may help to prevent/treat Pancreatic Cancer. references

Vitamin E may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
Vitamin K may facilitate the apoptosis (cell death) of Pancreatic Cancer cells. references

These Foods/Herbs may Alleviate or Prevent Pancreatic Cancer

Animal-Derived Supplemental Foods

Bovine Cartilage may be capable of inhibiting Pancreatic Cancer and may cause the regression of the cancerous Cells involved in Pancreatic Cancer. references
Shark Cartilage may be an effective treatment for Pancreatic Cancer (the use of Shark Cartilage for the treatment of Pancreatic Cancer has not yet been studied in clinical trials but it is known that Shark Cartilage inhibits the formation of new Blood Vessels (a process known as angiogenesis) that “feed” solid tumors - Pancreatic Cancer is regarded as a solid tumor):
-Caution: The use of Shark Cartilage for the treatment of Cancer is controversial. Some clearly unbiased natural medicine researchers have concluded that Shark Cartilage is ineffective for the treatment of Cancer and a recent clinical trial adds support to this counter-argument. references

Fruits

High consumption of Fruit may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer: references

-Citrus Fruits may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer: references
-Grapefruit may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
-Oranges may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references

Herbs

Aloe vera may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
Graviola may help to prevent and treat Pancreatic Cancer. references
Greater Celandine (Ukrain derivative administered via injection) may increase survival time in Pancreatic Cancer patients. references

Korean Ginseng may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references
Tea (especially Green Tea) may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer (due to the high Tea Polyphenols content of Green Tea). references
Turmeric may inhibit the growth of Pancreatic Cancer (due to the Curcumin content of Turmeric). [more info]

Mushrooms

Shiitake Mushrooms (6,000 mg of Lentinus Edodes Mycelial Extract (LEM Extract) per day) may be an effective treatment for some cases of Pancreatic Cancer. [more info]

Oils (dietary Oils)

Fish Oils may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer, may inhibit the rate of growth of Pancreatic Cancer and may prolong survival in Pancreatic Cancer patients. It may also stimulate the Apoptosis of Pancreatic Cancer cells. references

Vegetables

High consumption of Vegetables may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer. references

Tomato may help to prevent Pancreatic Cancer (due to the Lycopene content of Tomato). references

These Substances may Increase the Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

Enzymes - Excessive Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) production/activity may cause Pancreatic Cancer. references

Hormones - Elevated Insulin levels may increase the risk of Pancreatic Cancer. references

Lipids - Excessive consumption of dietary Fats may increase the risk of Pancreatic Cancer.

Recreational Drugs - Excessive consumption of Alcohol (ethanol) may increase the risk of Pancreatic Cancer by 100%.
Tobacco smoking may cause Pancreatic Cancer. references

These Ailments may Increase the Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

Digestive System

Chronic Pancreatitis may increase the risk of Pancreatic Cancer.

Metabolism

Obesity may increase the risk of Pancreatic Cancer. references

Side Effects of Pancreatic Cancer

Metabolism

Pancreatic Cancer patients are particularly prone to Cachexia (more so than other forms of Cancer).
