Diets against PCA

Several patients that I have met at my office, they are more likely loved to discuss about the dietary against the prostate cancer. Well, I just make an 2020 updated in order to response something that you have wonder in mind.

Diets which have confirmed on protective effects against prostate cancer.

5 Diets against prostate cancer
Lycopene in tomato has been confirmed as protection against prostate cancer
  1. Tomato – A tremendous study recently has shown that; Lycopene which is rich in tomato significantly capable to reduce the cancer risk rate. Furthermore, the effective dose-related is 2 mg that will help to increase Lycopene if can consume it regularly. Literally, it could decrease 1% of prostate cancer rate down there. But why Lycopene so works? – There is a theory explained that Lycopene doing the reduction of the genes expression involved with testosterone metabolism. Absolutely, testosterone hormone plays a major role in cancer’s natural history.
Green tea
Catechin in Green tea has been confirmed as protection against prostate cancer
  1. Green tea – There’s been a confirmation studies said that Catechin which is rich in green tea has an inhibitory effects on the cancer progression. A tremendous study from Japanese who were number one in green tea drinker primarily said that, drinking 5 or more cups of green tea for your daily routine, will actually can be reduced the cancer risk rate either way. Question is, do we believe that we just can take so much green tea regularly like that?

Diets which probably have protective effects against prostate cancer.

Vegetable oil
Unsaturated fatty acid in vegetable oil probably reduce prostate cancer risk
  1. Fish, vegetable oil – The unsaturated fatty acid might help reducing the cancer rate. Although, we have only a confirmed data that the High-Fat Diet can leads to several kind of cancers which prostate cancer is one among those. The studies in mice has shown that High-Fat diets are significantly increasing the cancer size. Anyway, we have no clear data on specifically unsaturated fatty acid diets against cancer.
Soy milk
Soy milk or Legumes probably protect us against prostate cancer
  1. Legumes (Soy milk) – Isoflavones which is abundant in Legumes and it plays very protective effects role on the cancer prevention. Isoflavones chemical structural is similar to Estrogen hormone, therefore, it can bind with estrogen receptor in prostatic tissue and might inhibit cancer cell growth.

Diet which still controversial on a protective effect against prostate cancer.

Prudent diet
“Having healthy food” is an unspecific term which still controversial in prostate cancer prevention
  1. Prudent pattern diets – Prudent pattern diets is roughly defined as rich in vegetable, fruits, fishes and legume diet. I believe that most doctors normally often advise patients to taking care a health and more likely to advise them to do modification on the food regiment, Prudent diet is in this kind of thing. By the way what is the exact meaning? It still no clear definition of Prudent pattern diets which is so vary among nationality – For example, prudent pattern diets in Japanese is totally different when we compare with European. The only data that we have now, a high red meat consumption, lots of processed meat intake, potatoes and high-fat dairy products are significantly increasing a prostate cancer risk.

Any questions, you can feel free to discuss with me. Good luck and stay safe from prostate cancer!

  1. Dear Dr. Pommy, I really enjoyed reading your article. I am trying to get on a regimen of fresh fruits and green vegetables.
