Every year prostate cancer killed 31,500 American, One of every six
American will be diagnosed of prostate cancer in his lifetime.
1). Eat less red meat ( beef, pork, lamb, or veal). Harvard researchers
reported that men who ate red meat (beef, pork, lamb, or veal)
most frequently had more than double the risk of advanced
prostate cancer compared to men who ate those meats least
2). Don't take calcium more than 2,000 milligrams a day. Vitamin D
may protect the prostate. However, it’s safe to have Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs)—1,000 mg a day for men
50 or younger and 1,200 mg for men over 50.
3).Take selenium (200 micrograms a day, such as high-selenium yeast)
and vitamin E (400 IU of alpha-tocopherol) daily might lower
the risk of prostate cancer in healthy men. NIH is
launching a 7- 12 years clinic study of prostate cancer
prevention (SELECT -Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention
Trial). To be a volunteer, you
must have a PSA no higher than 4 and must be at least 55 years
old (at least 50 if you’re African American). For more
information, call the NCI’s Cancer Information Service
4). Eat tomato-rich meal at least twice a week. It has been found a
higher blood lycopene levels in men can low risk of prostate cancer.
Men who consumed tomato sauce two
to four times a week had a 34 percent lower risk of prostate cancer
than men who ate no tomato sauce.
5). Eat more soy products and take soy isoflavones supplement.
The isoflavones in soy inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells in animals
study and people in Asia who consumed soy product as regular food have low
prostate cancer incidence.
6). consumer fish three to four time a week to replace red meat. Try to
take omega-3 fatty acid supplements (deep sea fish oil).
Latest study showed that the men who consumed more
fish—especially deep sea fish (Salmon and
tuna) —had a lower risk of prostate cancer. these fish are good sources of fats
and seem to be protective.
7). Eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains
with different colors (that indicate their content of specific phytochemicals that have preventive health
benefits), eat less meat and
animal fat may help for cancer.
8). Take anti-oxidants,
