Reduced Risk of Prostate Cancer

By May 21, 2019 May 27th, 2019 News

A recent report in the International Journal of Cancer looked at lifestyle information for 142,239 men participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. Over an average follow up of 14 years, there appeared to be a small but significant reduction in the risk of a prostate cancer diagnosis among the men with the highest fruit intake, particularly citrus fruit. A similar effect with vegetable intake could not be identified. Although higher fruit intake appeared to reduce the risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer, it did not appear to reduce the risk of dying from prostate cancer.
