Guys, what can you do to prevent Prostate Cancer?


Do you have risk factors for developing Prostate Cancer? If you are at risk, then you need to change your lifestyle!

When it comes to diet, a more nutritious diet may help prevent the development of Prostate Cancer. Research shows that a compound called lycopene, which gives some foods their deep colour, may decrease the risk of Prostate Cancer.

Vitamin E is another nutrient which may help reduce risk.

Include these foods in your diet:

- Tomatoes in any form – fresh, tinned whole tomato for sauces & stews, tomato sauce & tomato juice

Papaya, watermelon and ruby grapefruit

- Green leafy veg e.g. dark lettuce for salad, spinach & kale

Nuts, seeds and olive oil

- Follow a balanced diet with a low salt and low alcohol intake
