Study Links Periodontal Disease Bacteria to Pancreatic Cancer Risk

More than 50 000 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, and because the disease is often not diagnosed until an advanced stage, less than 10% of those diagnosed will still be alive in 5 years (http://1.usa.gov/1wOVy73).
