B Vitamins Inhibit Pancreatic Cancer

Researchers looked at the dietary intake of B vitamins and their relationship to pancreatic cancer. In the study, published in Cancer, Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention, 63,257 subjects from the Singapore Chinese Health Study were examined for an average of 16 years of follow-up.

Among subjects whose intake of vitamin B6 was in the top 20th percentile, there was a nearly 50 percent lower risk of developing pancreatic cancer, compared to the lowest 20th percentile of B6 intake.

Similarly, higher choline intake was associated with a 33 percent decline in pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer kills nearly 40,000 Americans each year. Conventional medicine has little to offer in treatment once the diagnosis is made. And it is a horrific illness.

Choline is part of the B vitamin family. It is needed for cell membrane integrity and methylation. It can be found in wheat germ, fish, spinach, broccoli, and eggs.

Symptoms of choline deficiency include fatty liver disease, which currently affects a large percentage of Americans.

Vitamin B6 is needed for neurotransmitter and hemoglobin synthesis, as well as glucose and lipid metabolism.

Vitamin B6 can be found in milk, grains, pork, turkey, potatoes, pistachios, and bananas. Processing markedly lowers vitamin B6 content in food.

It is important to eat a healthy diet that supplies the body with the proper nutrients. Over the years, I have checked thousands of patients for their vitamin and mineral levels.

Unfortunately, I can report that most of my patients have nutrient deficiencies.
