Diet may minimize prostate cancer risk, review concludes

June 18, 2009 by  

Diet may minimize prostate cancer risk, review concludes According to a new article, dietary adjustments may help prevent or treat prostate cancer.

The article, published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, is based on a new review study conduced in Australia which confirms a diet low in fat and red meat and high in fruits and vegetables has beneficial effects.

In particular, consumption of tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, green tea as well as Vitamin E and selenium supplementation seemed to correlate with a lower risk of cancer.

By contrast, high intake of processed or charcoaled meats, dairy products and fats appeared to be related to a higher risk.

To arrive at the conclusion, the researchers reviewed dietary recommendations in the prevention and management of the prostate cancer, and found that those who successfully managed or avoided the disease also had lower dairy consumption and calcium intake.

Stressing the results are not conclusive, the authors nonetheless believe a "general dietary modification has a beneficial effect on the prevention of prostate cancer."

"In patients with prostate cancer, dietary therapy allows them to be an active participant in their treatment," they emphasize.

    Somebody mentioned chinese medicine , Their was a alternate treatment for protate health , evreybody bragged about, my doctor , doctor Douglas from georgia reccomended this He didnt know what was in it but it sure could knock your PSA test way down , mine was about twenty so I finally ordered some . Secret chinese and vienam herbs , only grown on special mountian soil , My PSA droped , any time I took my medicine , My Urologist couldnt opperate on a dropping PSA . I’am sure my alternative doctor thought I was cured . My regular doctor wanted to get some of this stuff himself . Untill I found out what was in it . A little diethyl stebestrole , Than my regular doctor said we used to use that , but the patients always died quicker .. So a lot of these alternative treatments turn out to be old remedies just repackaged as new tricks . beware of foreign secret formulas from old indians or chinese especialy if they really work .
