Prostate Cancer and the Diet                                  

Every year prostate cancer killed 31,500 American, One of every six American  will be diagnosed of prostate cancer in his lifetime.

Suggested diet:

 1). Eat less red meat ( beef, pork, lamb, or veal).   Harvard researchers reported that men who ate red meat (beef, pork, lamb, or veal) most frequently had more than double the risk of advanced prostate cancer compared to men who ate those meats least often.

2). Don't take calcium more than  2,000 milligrams a day.  Vitamin D may protect the prostate. However, it’s safe to have Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs)—1,000 mg a day for men 50 or younger and 1,200 mg for men over 50. 

3).Take selenium (200 micrograms a day, such as  high-selenium yeast) and vitamin E (400 IU of alpha-tocopherol) daily might lower the risk of prostate cancer in healthy men.  NIH is launching a 7- 12 years clinic study of prostate cancer prevention (SELECT -Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial). To be a volunteer, you must have a PSA no higher than 4 and must be at least 55 years old (at least 50 if you’re African American). For more information, call the NCI’s Cancer Information Service (1-800-4CANCER).

4). Eat tomato-rich meal at least twice a week.  It has been found a higher blood lycopene levels in men can low risk of prostate cancer.   Men who consumed tomato sauce two to four times a week had a 34 percent lower risk of prostate cancer than men who ate no tomato sauce. 

5). Eat more soy products and take soy isoflavones supplement.   The isoflavones in soy inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells in animals study and people in Asia who consumed soy product as regular food have low prostate cancer incidence.

6). consumer fish three to four time a week to replace red meat.  Try to take omega-3  fatty acid supplements (deep sea fish oil).   Latest study showed that  the men who consumed more fish—especially deep sea fish (Salmon and tuna) —had a lower risk of prostate cancer. these fish are  good sources of fats and seem to be protective.

7). Eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains with different colors (that indicate their content of specific phytochemicals that have preventive health benefits), eat less meat and animal fat  may help for cancer.

8). Take anti-oxidants, Lycopene please go to  cancer prevention page for more information.
