Prostate Cancer Prevention

Also indexed as:Cancer, Prostate
Gain added protection against prostate cancer by living a healthy lifestyle and by learning more about the causes of this common disease. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

The right diet is the key to managing many diseases and to improving general quality of life. For this condition, scientific research has found benefit in the following healthy eating tips.

RecommendationWhyGet started
Go fishFish eaters have been reported to have a low risk of prostate cancer, possibly due to fish's high omega-3 fatty acid content.
Go for cruciferous veggiesCruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower, may protect against prostate cancer.
Sample some soyGenistein, found in soy foods, has been shown to inhibit growth of prostate cancer cells, help kill these cells, and exhibit other anticancer actions in test-tube studies, more research is needed to confirm these findings
Team up with tomatoesTomatoes may protect against a variety of cancers, and their protective effect seems to be stronger for prostate cancer than for most other cancers.
Try a low-fat dietMen who ate a high-fat, low-fiber diet were reported to have higher levels of testosterone, which might increase prostate cancer risk.
Avoid beerAlthough the effect of drinking alcohol on prostate cancer risk appears weak, some association between beer drinking and an increased risk may exist.
Watch the meatResearch suggests that frequently eating meat, well-done steak, or cured meats may increase prostate cancer risk, though the association between prostate cancer and other meats has not been confirmed.
