Association between cholesterol intake and pancreatic cancer risk: Evidence from a meta-analysis.
A significant elevation in pancreatic cancer risk is associated with high consumption of cholesterol-rich foods.
Researchers observed high occurrence rates of pancreatic cancer among consistent consumers of foods high in cholesterol. Pancreatic cancer risk was found to increase by 8% for every 100mg of cholesterol consumed per day. The authors of this study concluded that regular intake of diets high in cholesterol-containing foods may be a contributing factor to the development of pancreatic cancer.
