My guess is that if you are reading this post then you or a loved one has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Further, you’ve been told by your oncologist that your therapy choices are limited.
I disagree. I am a long-term survivor of an “incurable cancer” called multiple myeloma. Just because conventional oncology considers a type of cancer to be incurable doesn’t mean that it is incurable. You may have to work harder to manage your pancreatic cancer. And you will have to think outside-the-box- evidence-based therapies but non-conventional therapies based on research. If I can live for 20 + years with my “incurable” cancer then so can you.
Don’t misunderstand what I am saying in this post. Cruciferous veggies and onion and/or garlic are not a silver bullet cure of your cancer. What evidence-based, anti-pancreatic cancer therapies will do is fight your cancer. I fight my cancer daily with nutrition, supplementation, bone health, lifestyle and other therapies. No silver bullet cures, just chopping away at my incurable cancer each and every day.

“Sulforaphane [1-isothiocyanato-4-(methyl-sulfinyl) butane)], an isothiocyanate derived from cruciferous vegetables, has been shown to possess potent chemopreventive activity. We analyzed the effect of sulforaphane on the proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells.
Sulforaphane inhibited pancreatic cancer cell growth in vitro with the IC50‘s around 10-15 μM and induced apoptosis. In pancreatic cancer xenograft mouse model, administration of sulforaphane showed remarkable inhibition of tumor growth without apparent toxicity noticed. We found that sulforaphane induced the degradation of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) client proteins and blocked the interaction of Hsp90 with its cochaperone p50Cdc37 in pancreatic cancer cells. Using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) with an isoleucine-specific labeling strategy, we overcame the protein size limit of conventional NMR and studied the interaction of sulforaphane with full-length Hsp90 dimer (170 kDa) in solution. NMR revealed multiple chemical shifts in sheet 2 and the adjacent loop in Hsp90 N-terminal domain after incubation of Hsp90 with sulforaphane.
Liquid Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) further mapped a short peptide in this region that was tagged with sulforaphane. These data suggest a new mechanism of sulforaphane that disrupts protein-protein interaction in Hsp90 complex for its chemopreventive activity…”
“Background-Previous studies regarding the association between cruciferous vegetable intake and pancreatic cancer risk have reported inconsistent results. We conducted a meta-analysis to demonstrate the potential association between them…
Results- Four cohort and five case–control studies were eligible for inclusion. We found a significantly decreased risk of pancreatic cancer associated with the high intake of cruciferous vegetables (OR 0.78, 95% CI 0.64–0.91). Moderate heterogeneity was detected across studies (P = 0.065). There was no evidence of significant publication bias based on Begg’s funnel plot (P = 0.917) or Egger’s test (P = 0.669).
Conclusions- Cruciferous vegetable intake might be inversely associated with pancreatic cancer risk. Because of the limited number of studies included in this meta-analysis, further well-designed prospective studies are warranted to confirm the inverse association between cruciferous vegetable intake and risk of pancreatic cancer…”
“Background: Interest in the potential benefits of allium vegetables, in particular, onion (Allium cepa) and garlic (Allium sativum), has its origin in antiquity, but the details of these benefits are still open to discussion.
Conclusions: This uniquely large data set from southern European populations shows an inverse association between the frequency of use of allium vegetables and the risk of several common cancers. Allium vegetables are a favorable correlate of cancer risk in Europe.”
