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.
