A number of studies over the past few decades have shown a definitive connection between diet and a man's risk of developing prostate cancer.
“A growing number of studies show that improving nutrition along with the addition of special nutrients can dramatically reduce risk,” says Dr Russell Blaylock, a well-recognised neurologist and nutrition expert in the United States.
This means that even if members of your family with prostate cancer, you can put the odds of remaining cancer-free on your side by following a healthy diet. Read on to learn about three common nutrients that stop prostate cancer in its tracks.
Three nutrients that help ward off prostate cancer
Lycopene is an antioxidant that gives tomatoes and watermelon their bright red colour. A body of research has shown that lycopene can reduce the risk of prostate cancer
by up to 35%. One study found that men with precancerous changes in their prostate
who took 4 mg of lycopene twice a day cut the risk of their condition progressing to prostate
cancer. For additional prostate cancer-fighting benefits, cook your tomatoes in a small amount of oil. This makes the lycopene in tomatoes become even more biologically active, according to a study at the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom.
The healing secret big pharma doesn’t want you to know!
“I may be politically incorrect and stepping on the toes of big pharma, but, my test results for my aggressive prostate cancer in consistently getting better and better. I have gone from surgery, chemo and radiation suggestions to my doctor’s suggestion of wait-and-see, as improvement has been quite dramatic. I have only been on my daily regimen for 9 months.” ~ John Duffy

#2: Vitamin D
Men who are deficient in vitamin D are much more likely to develop prostate cancer than men with healthy levels of the sunshine vitamin, a recent study from the National Institutes of Health and the US Department of Defense found. The risk of aggressive prostate cancer shot up by up to 500%, the researchers noted. So how much vitamin D is enough to keep your prostate healthy? Experts recommend at least 5,000 international units daily or at least 15 minutes of summer sunshine without sunscreen.
#3: Indole-3 carbinol
Indole-3 carbinol is created from the breakdown of compounds found in cruciferous vegetables like cabbage and broccoli. “Studies have shown that combining lycopene in a dose of 20 mg to 30 mg with indole-3 carbinol – extracted from broccoli – can dramatically shrink a swollen prostate and greatly reduce the risk of prostate cancaer,” says Dr Blaylock. This nutrient also benefits men who already have prostate cancer by keeping cells from growing and spreading, a study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry
