Pancreatic Cancer Number 2 Killer, Soon

There was some bad news released yesterday about a terrible form of cancer. Millions of Americans already know far too well how deadly pancreatic cancer has become in the world today, but it was reported recently that by 2030 pancreatic cancer will become #2 on the list of most deadly forms of cancer. Why pancreatic cancer is still so deadly is an open question. For many years, doctors have known that a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer turns out to be a death sentence for the vast majority of patients with the disease. However, few new promising treatments have been developed to battle this horrible disease. My own father died from pancreatic cancer back in 2001. From first hand experience, I saw how this form of cancer can take a life within six months time and leave nothing but a hollowed out shell when the body finally gives out. I have often wondered, if increasing levels of blood sugar in the American diet have anything to do with this increase in pancreatic cancer cases? Everyone should pray daily for a cure, so pancreatic cancer will not make it to the #2 position in the lifetimes of most of us.
