What you eat may affect your risk of developing prostate cancer. Learn which foods are better than others.
We all know that a diet low in fat and calories and rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is good for our health. But if you have prostate cancer, what you eat may play a role in how your cancer progresses, and your dietary choices might even influence whether you ever develop the disease at all.
Diets high in red meat, dairy products and animal fat have frequently been connected with the development of prostate cancer. Red meat (such as beef, pork, and lamb) is particularly tied to aggressive prostate cancer.
Regular consumption of sugary foods and beverages is one thing that can develop into prostate cancer. This is because cancer cells feed on sugar.
Getting enough vitamins and minerals with a healthy, balanced diet may be one of the keys to warding off prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 41 will die of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it.
