Veggies Kick Out Cancer
New research concludes that a diet high in vegetables can reduce the risk of prostate cancer. The research, recently published in the online edition of Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, reviewed available literature, including 29 cohort studies, 69
case-control studies, and 4 randomized clinical trials.
The researchers analyzed a number of plant foods and point to antioxidants as the primary mechanism of this effect, protecting against DNA and cell damage. Among the foods analyzed are tomatoes, yellow orange vegetables, as well as cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower brussels sprouts, cabbage, bok choy, collard greens and kale. Researchers also noted that consumption of legumes, including soy and soy products, provides protection against prostate cancer.
