10 Foods That Fight Prostate Cancer
There is strong evidence that eating certain foods can significantly cut a man's risk of prostate cancer. Here's a list of
ten powerful prostate protectors:
Cruciferous Vegetables
Eating three or more servings of cruciferous vegetables like
cauliflower, broccoli, kale, mustard greens, and Brussels sprouts
per week may reduce the risk of prostate cancer by almost half.
Pomegranate Juice
Research shows that pomegranate juice slows the growth of
prostate cancer in mice.
Turmeric
Studies show that turmeric may prevent prostate cancer and slow
its progress, especially when eaten with cauliflower.
Flaxseeds
Studies in mice indicate that flaxseeds may prevent and slow the
spread of prostate cancer.
Green Tea
In several studies, green tea has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer.
Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts are one of the best natural sources of selenium, a mineral that is strongly preventative against prostate
cancer. Experts say that taking an extra 200mcg of selenium per day will reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 50
percent. Just a handful of Brazil nuts per day will meet this requirement.
Garlic Garlic has been shown in several studies to cut the risk of prostate cancer by
as much as 53 percent. Garlic also contains a good amount of selenium.
Scallions
One study showed that eating just 1/10 an ounce of scallions per day cut men's risk
of prostate cancer by as much as 70 percent.
Tomatoes
Tomatoes are one of the best sources of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant which has
been shown in several studies to have a protective effect against prostate cancer. Though one recent study has
created some doubt about the protective effect lycopene has against prostate cancer, the National Prostate Cancer
Foundation says the earlier studies are still valid and continues to recommend that men eat plenty of foods
containing lycopene.
