Important Study for Men with Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men. So, this is a diet study that every man should know about!
This study let men with prostate cancer eat whatever they wanted and followed them for 7.4 years.
It found that the men who ate the most plant-based foods had a significant 52% reduced risk of their prostate cancer progressing and a significant 53% reduced risk of it recurring compared to men who ate the least.
Results from this new study are to be presented at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.
This study is the latest, but not the first, to highlight the importance of vegetarian diets for men with prostate cancer. A 1993 Harvard study of 48,000 men found that those who ate the most animal fat had a greater risk of developing a more advanced form of prostate cancer (J Natl Cancer Inst 1993;85(19):11571-79).
A Canadian study found that men who eat the most saturated fat have more than triple the risk of dying of prostate cancer than men who eat the least (Eur Urol 1999;35:388-91).
Another new study found that eating more plant-based food significantly lowers the risk of dying from prostate cancer. For men under 65, it also lowered the risk of advanced and metastatic prostate cancer (Am J Clin Nutr March 2022;115(3):662-70).
So, this new study convincingly adds to the evidence that when men with prostate cancer eat more plant-based foods, they reduce their risk of progression, recurrence and death from prostate cancer.
That’s an easy change to make, and it has lots of other health benefits.
