My husband did not have diabetes when he was diagnosed with pancreatic
cancer. His father had been diagnosed with it several years before he died.
I have read that more people with diabetes will get pancreatic cancer than
any other group of people. My husband and an abnormal appetite for sugar
however. I used to say to him when he would pour sugar in his coffee that he
was going to exhaust his pancreas and he probably already had pancreatic
cancer when I was saying that as it didn't get diagnosed until he was deep
into stage IV. He lived 7 months after diagnosis but everyday spiraled down
to the end.
His cancer changed my life in that I've been grieving for him for 10 years
now as well as our four children. I fear that one day one of them may get it
and it has changed my way of eating. Reading about PC and other cancers you
soon find out that refined white sugar and most sugar substitutes and flour
and the standard American diet does contribute to bad health and reasons for
our cells to mutate and multiply and lead to various illnesses. Quality of
life comes from eating quality foods. There is much to be learned before
condemning such a statement. WE are responsible for our own health, we are
what we eat.
