Healthy diet may reduce risk of prostate cancer metastasis

Category: Prostate

One of the best ways for men who have received PSA tests indicating they have prostate cancer to reduce their risk of suffering serious complications as a result of the condition is to eat a healthy diet, according to a new study.

A team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles showed that prostate cancer cells grew much slower in men who ate low-fat diets and took omega-3 supplements than those who consumed a traditional Western-style diet.

"The finding that the low-fat, fish oil diet reduced the number of rapidly dividing cells in the prostate cancer tissue is important because the rate at which the cells are dividing can be predictive of future cancer progression," said lead researcher William Aronson. "The lower the rate of proliferation, the lesser the chances that the cancer will spread outside the prostate."

Aronson added that people really are what they eat. He hopes the findings will show individuals that there is a very simple way to significantly reduce their risk of suffering prostate cancer complications.
