Risk Of Prostate Cancer Lowered By Eating Certain Vegetables

30 09 2007

The risk of prostate cancer may be reduced by consuming more than one serving per week of broccoli, cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables, according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

This research conducted among over 29,000 men has found that men who ate broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, and turnips were 40 percent less likely to be diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer compared to men whose diet included very little of these vegetables.

The study found that men who consumed cauliflower more than once a week were 52 percent less likely to be diagnosed with extraprostatic prostate cancer compared to those who ate cauliflower less than once a month. Men who consumed broccoli more than once a week were 45 percent less likely to be diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer.

Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli or cabbage, contain numerous powerful anticarcinogens called glucosinolates. The results found in this and previous studies have suggested that a healthy diet should regularly contain servings of this group of vegetables.
