Pancreatic cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to treat. So clues on how to prevent it are incredibly valuable.

A new study followed 23,658 people between forty and seventy-four for ten years. They found that . . .  the ones who got the most selenium in their diet had only about half the risk of getting pancreatic cancer of the ones who got the least. People who got the most vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium had a full 67% reduction in risk compared to those who got the least of those three antioxidants.

The study suggests that a diet rich in the antioxidants selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E could greatly reduce the risk of getting pancreatic cancer.
