When you put together all the research on diet and prostate cancer, what do you find? . . .  This just completed review of the studies found that when you eat more plant foods, you protect yourself against prostate cancer. It found an especially strong benefit when you eat more lycopene rich foods like tomato and watermelon and when you eat more cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale. Soy and foods rich in selenium and vitamin E also protect you. On the other hand, meat (especially when grilled or processed), dairy and animal and saturated fats increase your risk of prostate cancer. So there's more evidence that moving towards a vegetarian diet is good for preventing cancer.
