Genetics and family history, for example, are beyond your control. If you're concerned about your risk of developing prostate cancer, there are some lifestyle adjustments you may do that are related with greater prostate health, such as dietary changes.
Here are the top items to avoid if you’re trying to reduce your risk of prostate cancer:
1. Sugary, sodas and drinks. High: Sugar consumption is linked to all malignancies, including prostate cancer. Sodas, especially sugary ones, can quickly raise your sugar intake to harmful levels. A modest serving of soda has between seven to eleven teaspoons of sugar; the American Heart Association recommends that males drink no more than nine teaspoons of sugar per day.
A study discovered that consuming more refined carbs, such as cakes, cookies, and sugary soft drinks, was associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. Another study of almost 22,000 men showed that "reducing sugar intake from beverages may be important in the prevention of prostate cancer."
2. Saturated fats: Saturated fat diets are linked to an increased risk of advanced or deadly prostate cancer. Saturated fat is found in fatty cuts of meat, dairy products, and coconut and palm oils. A tiny study from Laval University in Quebec discovered that lowering saturated fat moderately may lessen the risk of dying from prostate cancer.
3. Dairy: Is a fantastic source of calcium, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. According to one study, a high dairy diet may be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. Similarly, a meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition discovered that drinking more than one glass of milk per day increased a man's risk of acquiring deadly prostate cancer by doubling his risk.
4. Sodium: A high-salt diet has been linked to an elevated risk of numerous malignancies and chronic health disorders. A Canadian study discovered that routinely adding salt to food was associated with an increased risk of prostate and other cancers. The FDA recommends limiting sodium intake to 2,300 mg per day (about one teaspoon of table salt).
5. Red meat and processed meat: Eating red and processed meats has been linked to an increased risk of a variety of malignancies, particularly colon cancer. Processed meats such as sausages, bacon, and hot dogs may be especially hazardous. The same Canadian study that discovered that adding salt to food was associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer discovered that consuming processed meats is even worse, stating that they are significantly associated with a higher risk of numerous cancers, including prostate cancer.
To summarize, you cannot control all of the risk factors for prostate cancer, but eating a nutritious diet is one method to safeguard your prostate and general health.
