Carbs and Prostate Cancer

PositiveTips

Individuals with the highest carbohydrate intake experienced a 70% lower risk of prostate cancer (PC) compared with those who ate the least of these foods. This preliminary report analyzed veterans' medical records and strongly supports the benefits of a diet rich in complex carbohydrates (unrefined) and dietary fiber. This was true in both black and white men and equally applied to the risk of low-grade and high-grade PC.

PositiveTip: Eating whole grains, vegetables and fruit may significantly reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
