The pancreas is an oblong flattened gland in the digestive and endocrine system located in the abdomen.
The gland not only plays a critical role in aiding the digestive system to break down carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids by secreting pancreatic juice to the small intestine but also regulates the production of the hormone insulin to convert glucose to energy from the bloodstream.
Pancreatic cancer is a chronic and medical condition caused by cell growth disorderly in the pancreas innermost layer.
Pancreatic cancer found in the ducts (an exocrine component of the pancreas) that carry pancreatic juices with cancer of an epithelium that originates in glandular tissue accounts for over 75 – 90% of all cases of pancreatic cancers.
At the advanced stage, cancerous cells from the primary pancreas can also travel a distance away to infect other healthy tissue and organ, leading to secondary metastasis.
According to the statistics provided by the American Cancer Society, in 2019, approximately 56,770 Americans including 29,940 men and 26,830 women will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and pancreatic cancer will also cause the death of 45,750 Americans including 23,800 men and 21,950 women.
And the average lifetime risk of pancreatic cancer is about 1 in 64.
Most common symptoms of pancreatic cancer are
* Back pain is casued tumor grows in the back of the pancreas.
* Unexplained weight loss
Any unintentional weight loss over 10% may be a symptom of cancer.
* Loss of appetite
This is a general and common symptom in all forms of cancer.
* Pain and discomfort in the stomach area is a result of an oversized tumor that presses on the nerves in the area.
* Jaundice is a result of the oversized tumor that blocks the bile duct, causing bile back up to the liver.
* Fat in stool increase is a result of reduced bile that digests fat to the digestive system.
If you experience some of the aforementioned symptoms, please make sure that you check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.
The onion is a plant in the genus Allium, belonging to the family Alliaceae, a close relation of garlic. It is often called the “king of vegetables” because of its pungent taste and found in a large number of recipes and preparations spanning almost the totality of the world’s cultures.
Depending on the variety, an onion can be sharp, spicy, tangy, pungent, mild or sweet.
With an aim to find a potential compound for the treatment of pancreatic cancer, researchers conducted a population-based case-control study to investigate the association between vegetables and fruits and pancreatic cancer.
According to the results of 532 cases and 1,701 age- and sex-matched controls completed direct interviews between 1995 and 1999, onion showed a related risk ratio of 0.46 compared to 0.78 for citrus fruits and juice, 0.63 for dark leafy vegetables, 0.76 for cruciferous vegetables, 0.59 for yellow vegetables, 0.56 for carrots, 0.51 for beans.
In other words, the risk of pancreatic cancer is significantly lower in onion consumption compared to other healthy vegetables and fruits.
More precisely, included onion and garlic in your diet, the risk of pancreatic cancer was 0.49 (0.36-0.68) for more than nine servings per day compared to those of less than five servings per day of total vegetables and fruits combined.
The results strongly suggested that onion and garlic have a much strong effect on pancreatic cancer compared to other fruits and vegetable.
Taken altogether, onion used alone or combined with other fruits and vegetable may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of pancreatic cancer, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
