Diet to Prevent, Manage Prostate Cancer

SYDNEY—A diet high in vegetables and fruits, and low in fat, excessive meat and excessive dairy may help prevent and manage prostate cancer, according to an evidence-based review by Robert Ma and K Chapman of the University of New South Wales. In the review (J Hum Nutr Diet. 2009 Jun;22(3):187-99; quiz 200-2), they call this diet a “cost effective and noninvasive means of reducing the risk of prostate cancer and its progression.”

They warn against taking an excessive amount of dietary supplements because of the adverse effect associated with over consumption.
