Eating right can help maintain a healthy prostate & reduce cancer risk.
Start the year right by eating a low-fat diet to help maintain a healthy prostate. Load up on crunchy cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. Consume fish high in omega-3 fats like salmon, sardines and tuna. Love lycopene, which is found in tomatoes, tomato-based produced, red grapefruit and watermelon. Add soybeans and soy-based products to your diet. They, as well as lycopene, can help reduce risk of prostate cancer. Soy contains a nutrient called isoflavones, which have an estrogen-like affect and are believed to offset the male hormone, testosterone. Testosterone promotes prostate cancer cell growth. Chow down, eat right and talk to your physician about healthy food choices.
