Nuts and Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer has a 5-year survival rate of only 6%. A 30 year follow-up of more than 75,000 women in the Nurses' Health Study found women who ate 2 or more servings (2 oz. or 56 g) of nuts per week experienced a 35% lower risk of pancreatic cancer, compared to those who ate few nuts. This finding was independent of risk factors such as diabetes, BMI and smoking.
