What factors do and do not have an impact on reducing the risk of pancreatic cancer?

ANSWER

Other factors such as coffee and alcohol consumption and use of aspirin and NSAIDs have not been consistently shown to increase (or decrease) the risk of pancreatic cancer.

Exercising, keeping a healthy weight, and not smoking should somewhat reduce the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
