This study investigated the association of dietary fat and the risk of pancreatic cancer. The study included 111,416 participants, aged 55 to 74 years, who were followed for 8.4 years.
The study found:
(a) Those who consumed the most dietary fat had a 30% reduced risk of pancreatic cancer compared to those who consumed the least dietary fat.
(b) Those who consumed the most saturated fat had a 36% reduced risk of pancreatic cancer compared to those who consumed the least saturated fat.
