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.
