Prostate cancer cut by antioxidant rich diet
Would you like to lower your risk of aggressive prostate cancer? Eat more vegetables.
What did this study discover?
- 1,900 patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer were studied
- Those whose diets included the highest amount of flavonoids were 25% less likely to have been diagnosed with the fastest-moving and harshest form of the disease compared to those who had been taking in the fewest flavonoids
Flavonoids are only available in plant foods.
“What we are seeing here is the impact of flavonoids on reducing the risk for aggressive prostate cancer”
