we had not heard of this as one of the lifestyle factors as possible contribution to this cancer. My husband is a lifelong non-smoker, rarely drinks alcohol and was never overweight. No family history of pancreatic ca. So, not only were we perplexed by the onset of his pancreatic ca but the insistence by those less educated that he 'must be a closet drinker'. He does, however, have very bad teeth/gums. Always has. We had never heard that there might be a link. Interesting. It is human nature to want to know WHY one has developed a cancer when one thinks their lifestyle has been non-contributory. Thanks for sharing this info.
