Soy Plus Tomato May Help Prevent Prostate Cancer

Eating tomatoes and soy products together was found to be more effective in preventing prostate cancer than eating each one alone, says a University of Illinois professor, John Erdman. Erdman and his group conducted a study using genetically engineered mice which were divided into four groups with different diets: (1) fed with 10% whole tomato powder; (2) with 2% soy germ; (3) with tomato powder and soy germ; (4) control, no tomato no soy germ; starting from the time the animals were 4 to 18 weeks old. Erdman found out that all mice in the control group developed the disease […]

Selenium Reduces Risk of Advanced Prostate Cancer

New research shows that men who have high selenium levels may have a lower risk for developing advanced prostate cancer than those who have low levels of the mineral. Selenium is an essential mineral found in plants or vegetables grown in selenium-rich soil, Brazil nuts, meat and seafood. Milan Geybels, author and a doctoral candidate in cancer epidemiology at Maastricht University, Netherlands, reports at the American Association of Cancer Research, found that men with the highest selenium levels had more than a 60% reduced risk for advanced prostate cancer. Geybels’ team looked into the selenium levels of almost 60,000 men […]

Researchers reveal that moderate levels of exercise may reduce the risk for prostate cancer for elderly men. However, data shows that this was true only for Caucasian men and not for those of African American descent. Lionel Bañez, MD, of the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Durham N.C., and colleagues analyzed data gathered from questionnaires regarding physical activity levels in 307 men with an average age of 64 years.  They were patients who were suspected of having prostate disease. They compared the results with biopsy findings on their prostates, and found that there may be a link between activity […]

Fried Foods Linked to Prostate Cancer

Researchers found that weekly consumption of deep-fried foods such as French fries, fried fish, fried chicken and doughnuts increases the risk of prostate cancer in men by 30 to 37 percent and likewise poses a slightly greater risk of more aggressive prostate cancer. Janet L. Stanford, Ph.D. and colleagues Marni Stott-Miller, Ph.D. and Marian Neuhouser, Ph.D., all from Hutchinson Center’s Public Health Sciences Division, published their findings online in The Prostrate. For the study, the research team analyzed data from two prior case studies, which involved a total more than 1,500 men with prostate cancer and a similar number of […]

High Fiber Diet Reduces Prostate Cancer Progression

Prostate cancer occurs in similar rates among people in Asian and Western countries, but studies show that the disease tends to progress more among Westerners that Asians. Komal Raina, PhD, researcher at the University of Colorado Cancer Center reveals that for many years, scientists have been looking at genetic variations that could explain the difference in prostate cancer progression rates between different cultures.  Their study, which was recently published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research, shows that dietary factors may play a significant role in this issue. The study suggests that a high-fiber diet may have the potential to control […]
