Consuming more vegetables may benefit men who have received positive PSA tests for prostate cancer. A group of researchers is saying that plant foods may help slow the progression of tumors and stop prostate cancer from metastasizing.
Investigators from the University of California, San Diego told 10News that preliminary testing indicates that men with prostate cancer who ate the most vegetables each day experienced the slowest tumor growth.
While all of the results of the trial are not in, the researchers said that there appears to be a strong correlation between vegetable consumption and prostate cancer improvements.
"What we're hoping [and] what we're thinking is that this intervention… this high vegetable diet is going to keep the cancer from progressing," Kellogg Parsons, who participated in the study, told the news source.
The findings could have implications for millions of men. Prostate cancer remains the most common form of the disease among men and nearly 30,000 individuals die from the condition every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
