"A large study demonstrated that the combination of smoking, long-standing diabetes and a poor diet increases the risk of pancreatic cancer beyond the risk of any one of these factors alone".



“Now in order to help patients fight and survive this disease more attention and awareness are needed,” Trebek said.

He also urged people to wear purple for the month of November and to spread the word on social media.

I've grown up with him on my TV in the afternoons. I haven't always watched the show every single day, but knowing that he's gone hurts. This year has been rough for so many reasons. This one doesn't help that fact. He will be missed.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. And I mean it. I literally just gasped out loud at this and my husband thought a family member had died.

I remember watching that one with the NFL category. I was yelling at the TV! You could kind of tell when Alex was thinking, Dumb!, but he never let on.

So sad to hear. He was great at what he did and beloved by all. Insert Final Jeopardy theme song here (see attachment).

Here's a touching moment from the show during Final Jeopardy.
