Dietary Patterns Can Influence Prostate Cancer Risk

Dietary Patterns Can Influence Prostate Cancer Risk
prostate cancerA team led by researchers at Duke University Medical Center published a review analyzing the link between diet and prostate cancer in the journal BMC Medicine. The study is entitled “Nutrition, dietary interventions and prostate cancer: the latest evidence.” Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, with almost one million new cases diagnosed every year worldwide. It is a curable cancer that can range from slow-growing tumors (more common) to rapidly progressing aggressive tumors. An early diagnosis of the disease is crucial. Prostate cancer was found to have a six-fold higher incidence in Western than in non-Western countries, where factors related to lifestyle, diet, genetics and environment are thought to play a role. This review focused on the potential role of dietary patterns in prostate cancer incidence and development. Researchers found that low refined carbohydrates intake and an increased consumption of omega-3 fat, soy protein, green teas, coffee, pomegranate, resveratrol (present in raspberries, blueberries, grapes and wine), tomatoes and tomato products may reduce the risk for prostate cancer.
