Meta analysis of the association of cholesterol with pancreatic carcinoma risk.

A surge in pancreatic cancer risk is associated with regular consumers of high cholesterol-containing foods and individuals with high plasma levels of cholesterol.

This study examined the correlation between serum levels of cholesterol and consistent consumption of cholesterol-rich foods and the odds of developing pancreatic cancer. Researchers analyzed the nutritional data, medical records, and plasma cholesterol levels of thousands of subjects who participated in 19 studies conducted in Europe, Asia, and North America.

The team of researchers found out that both subjects with high plasma levels of cholesterol and regular consumers of foods with high cholesterol content had greater risk of developing pancreatic cancer than subjects with low serum concentrations of cholesterol and those who rarely or totally avoid consuming these types of foods. The results of this study suggest that high dietary ingestion of cholesterol-rich foods may accelerate the growth and development of cancerous cells and tumors in the pancreas.
