The Odds Ratio (OR) is displayed in the column furthest right. An OR of 1 means this research supports the idea that this factor has no influence on the likelihood of of Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma, an OR of more than 1 means the research supports the idea that people in that group are more likely to have Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma, and an OR of less than 1 means the research supports the idea that the people in that group are less likely to to have Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma. Basically, the higher the OR the more likely it is people who meet the criteria will get Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma. The two biggest factors are Overweight and New-onset diabetes, so people who are in those groups should be vigilant and aware of their increased risk.
