Protect Against Prostate Cancer with Nutrition

By Stewart Hare
One of the most common male cancers is prostate cancer, 50% to 70% of men in their 70’s have evidence of prostate cancer but only one in ten develop prostate cancer symptoms. The exact cause of prostate cancer is not known, but it is linked to age, diet and lifestyle and testosterone metabolism.

Because prostate cancer is slow growing the initial symptoms do not show, later symptoms such as frequent urination especially at night, slow urinary stream, pain whilst urinating, a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder after urination, dribbling after urination and sometimes blood in the urine are all signs of prostate cancer. If prostate cancer is left to spread other symptoms include weight loss, pain in the bones, fatigue and anaemia.

A change in diet can help with and to protect against prostate cancer. Cut down on animal fats, include plenty of fibre in the diet and consume lots of fruit and vegetables. Anti-prostate cancer foods are soy products, rice, green and yellow vegetables, seafood such as oysters, bran, whole grains, shiitake mushrooms, pulses, garlic, pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, nuts, seeds (flaxseed), cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and oily fish.
