In this book I have: Professional Guide to Diseases it says,"Pancreatic adenocarcinoma occurs most often among blacks, particularly in men ages 35-70. Geographically, incidence is highest in Isreal, the US, Sweden and Canada;lowest in Switzerland, Belgium and Italy. Predisposing factors are chronic pancreatitis, diabetes and alcohol abuse. It's linked to inhalation or absorption of carcinogens which are then excreted by the pancreas: cigarette smoking, diets high in fats and protein, food additives, exposure to industrial chemicals betya-naphthaline, bezidine, and urea.
