A new review published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics assessed whether certain modifications in diet have a beneficial effect on the prevention of prostate cancer.
Results suggest that a diet low in fat and animal protein and high in vegetables and fruit is beneficial in preventing and treating a cancerous prostate.
Robert W.-L. Ma and K. Chapman conducted an evidence-based review of dietary recommendations in the prevention of prostate cancer as well as in the management of patients with prostate cancer.
The researchers found that a diet low in saturated fat, high in vegetables and fruit, and avoiding high energy intake, excessive animal protein, and excessive dairy products and alkalizing calcium intake may be helpful in preventing prostate cancer, and for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Specifically, consumption of tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, and vitamins, including Vitamin E and selenium, seemed to propose a decreased risk of a cancerous prostate. Consumption of highly processed or charcoaled meats, dairy products, and saturated or trans fats seemed to be correlated with a cancerous condition, including a cancerous prostate.
"Although not conclusive, results suggest that general dietary modification has a beneficial effect on the prevention of prostate cancer," the authors conclude. "In patients with prostate cancer, dietary therapy allows patients to be an active participant in their treatment."
According to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center, "any cancerous condition, including a cancerous prostate is the result of poor elimination of dietary and/or metabolic acids through the four channels of elimination - lungs, bowels, kidneys and skin. To achieve extraordinary health and fitness you must maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet I call the pH Miracle Plan."
