Reducing Pancreatic Cancer
As your Portland personal Trainer here is a great article about reducing pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer has risen dramatically in the past 50 years, and this is, in part, likely tied to the enormous increase in sugar consumption. The pancreas secretes not only digestive enzymes, but also insulin, which is responsible for getting sugar from the bloodstream into our cells, where in can be converted into energy which is ATP. Insulin is a growth hormone that can stimulate the growth of cancer, so the single most important way to avoid pancreatic cancer is to avoid high carb binging like alcohol, other high carb foods and the bodies resulting overproduction of insulin. A little alcohol, caffeine or sugar is fine but too much can cause problems in your pancreas.
