Diet can have effect on prostate cancer

June 16, 2009 A study in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics suggests men may be able to lower their risk of developing prostate cancer, or slow it's progression at least, by watching their diets.

Australian researchers found that diets high in fat, processed or grilled meats or dairy products were linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer.

In contrast, men who regularly eat their vegetables and consume greater amounts of vitamin e, soy, fish and omega-3 fatty acids seem to have a relatively lower risk of developing the cancer.

The review also found there is evidence that eating healthier may help slow tumor progression in men who have prostate cancer.
