How to prevent prostrate cancer

How to prevent prostrate cancer
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men in the United States. The risk of developing prostate cancer progressively increases with age. Out of every 100 men over the age of 60, six will have prostate cancer before their 70th birthday, according to the CDC.
The prostate itself is an organ located under the bladder that produces semen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
There’s no absolute prostate cancer prevention, but evidence suggests diet plays a key role. Keep reading for diet tips and more information.

 Red Foods

 Tomatoes and other red foods

Tomatoes, watermelon, and other red foods owe their bright color to a powerful antioxidant called lycopene. Studies show that men who consume this fruit and tomato-based products have a lower risk of prostate cancer than those who don’t.
Other findings suggest that cooking tomatoes makes it easier for your body to absorb lycopene. The redder the tomato, the better because lycopene accumulates during ripening. That means that pale, store-bought tomatoes that are picked too early have less lycopene than vine-ripened tomatoes.

Fruits and Veggies 

 The power of fruits and veggies

Nutrients and vitamins contained in fruits and vegetables may lower your risk of getting prostate cancer. Green vegetables contain compounds that help your body break down cancer-causing substances called carcinogens. A nutrient-rich diet may also help slow the spread of cancer.
By eating fruits and vegetables throughout the day, you’ll be less likely to fill up on processed junk food.

Fish

Feast on fish

Fatty acid, known as omega-3, may help reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer. Omega-3 is found in certain fish including sardines, tuna, mackerel, trout, and salmon.

When compared to a high-fat diet, eating a low-fat diet and taking fish oil supplements has been found to slow the growth of prostate cancer cells. It’s easier to treat cancer that hasn’t yet spread outside the prostate.

Soy and tea

Soybean and tea

A nutrient called isoflavones has been linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Isoflavones are found in:
  •     tofu (made from soybeans)
  • chickpeas
  • lentils
  • alfalfa sprouts
  • peanuts
Some studies have shown that men who drink green tea, or take green tea extract supplements, have a lower risk of prostate cancer than those who don’t.
