September 16 2005

Daily consumption of raw green and yellow vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer of the pancreas exactly twice. This is the conclusion, scientists from the University of California at San Francisco. They found that drinking five or more servings per day of sweet potatoes, corn, carrots, onions and other similar vegetables is directly related to reduced risk of this disease.

No less useful, and green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and cruciferous such as broccoli.

"The fact that ordinary life preferences can provide significant protection from pancreatic cancer, may become one of the easiest ways to reduce the number of diseases," - said Professor epidemologii and Biostatistics Elizabeth Holly.

According to studies, green vegetables and tomatoes were slightly less useful. Full report of research will be published in the medical journal Cancer, Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention in September.
