Prostate CancerProstate Cancer and the Importance of Diet

Obese men diagnosed with prostate cancer suffer from more aggressive forms of the cancer and are more likely to suffer a relapse than their thinner counterparts. A recent study conducted on 3,162 men between 1987 and 2000 found that a body mass index >= 30 kg/m2 predicted a higher grade of cancer as well as a higher recurrence rate of the cancer. The researchers also found that black men in the study, who had higher BMIs than white men in the study, had a higher rate of recurrence than white men.

Another study was conducted on a population of 628 men in the Seattle area. A high rate of vegetable consumption was associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. The men, who all had recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, were given food-frequency questionnaires covering the 3- to 5-year period before diagnosis.

Based on the questionnaires, the researchers developed odds ratios for prostate cancer risk associated with the consumption of foods and nutrients. Men who ate 28 or more servings of vegetables per week, particularly cruciferous vegetables, experienced a reduced risk of developing prostate cancer than men who ate fewer than 14 servings per week. No associations between fruit in-take and prostate cancer risk were found.
