Dietary – Prostate Health

Additional studies on prostate health conclude that although some prostate health is genetic and perhaps environmental, the largest component to prostate health is food choice.

“It turns out that a diet that is really emphasizing plant-based foods – fruits, vegetables, grains, beans – that’s going to be your most protective diet. It seems that a diet that is heavy in animal products and simple carbohydrates is probably an increased risk factor for prostate cancer, not to mention a whole host of other diseases.” While nothing is all or nothing, a diet rich in veggies can lower your risks, and slow the progression of the disease if you do have prostate cancer.”
