Background: Although hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance have been hypothesized to be involved in pancreatic carcinogenesis, studies that have examined glycemic load or individual dietary components that influence glucose concentrations have yielded inconclusive results. Objective: Our objective was to investigate whether dietary insulin load and dietary insulin index are associated with the risk of pancreatic cancer. Design: We prospectively followed 86,740 women and 46,147 men who were… CONTINUE READING
