Prostate Cancer Prevention and Survival with Healthy Nutrition

Early Detection

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is very clear when it comes to screening for prostate cancer:

The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of prostate cancer screening in men younger than age 75 years.

The USPSTF recommends against screening for prostate cancer in men age 75 years or older.

Yet, this does not stop several doctors from recommending PSA screening.

Prevention

According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, below are 10 strategies for preventing prostate cancer

1. Eat lots of cruciferous vegetables.
2. Reduce consumption of animal protein.
3. Eat lots of tomatoes.
4. Eat plenty of Allium and yellow/orange vegetables.
5. Confirm adequate vitamin D levels with a blood test.
6. Do not rely on PSA screening as a method of “early detection” to prevent prostate cancer.
7. Avoid supplemental folic acid
8. Avoid dairy consumption.
9. Exercise at least 3 hours a week.
10. Supplement with zinc.

American Cancer Society

Here is what the American Cancer Society has to say about cancer:

  • For most Americans who do not use tobacco, the most important cancer risk factors that can be changed are body weight, diet, and physical activity.
  • One-third of all cancer deaths in the United States each year are linked to diet and physical activity, including being overweight or obese, while another third is caused by tobacco products.
  • Although our genes influence our risk of cancer, most of the difference in cancer risk between people is due to factors that are not inherited.
  • Avoiding tobacco products, staying at a healthy weight, staying active throughout life, and eating a healthy diet may greatly reduce a person’s lifetime risk of developing or dying from cancer.
  • These same behaviors are also linked with a lower risk of developing heart disease and diabetes.
