If you are a man, then you should care about the health of your prostate as you get older. The reason is that prostate cancer is one of the major cause of death in men. Due to our modern diet, more and more men are being diagnosed with prostate cancer. If you love eating unnatural, processed foods, I recommend you to stop eating them now and switch to a healthier choice of diet. There are plenty of foods that fight cancer cells. Here are the 8 top foods that I eat to prevent prostate cancer.
Broccoli might not be tasty but it certainly can help you fight prostate cancer. It is rich in a substance called sulphoraphane and it helps your body to get rid of the excess testorsterone. Besides it helps preventing prostate cancer, it also helps you to prevent other types of cancers.
Many studies have shown that garlic is powerful when it comes to preventing cancers, especially prostate cancer in men. Moreover, garlic contains a substantial amount of selenium which is also good at cutting the risk of prostate cancer.
3. Whole grains
If you liked white breads, switch to brown breads from now on. Whole grains are good for preventing cancers because it offers your body vitamin E, fibre, selenum and phytochemicals.
A lot of men I know do not like tomatoes. Tomatoes actually contain a powerful cancer-fighting antioxidant called lycopene. Studies have found that men who eat tomatoes regularly have lower risk of developing prostate cancer.
I never really enjoyed eating beans before but since I learned that beans are rich in fibre and it helps a man’s body to get rid of excess testosterone, I have made it a major part of my diet. Beans are also rich in antioxidant and therefore great at preventing prostate cancer.
6. Green tea
Green tea is rich in antioxidant which helps your body to prevent prostate cancer. If you do not drink enough green tea, you may take green tea capsules if you want. I drink at least one cup of green tea per day.
7. Soy milk
If I were you, I would stop drinking cow milk and switch milk from now on. Cow milk actually increase the chances of you developing prostate cancer. On the other hand, soy milk decreases the risk of prostate cancer.
Many gentlemen I know do not eat enough fish. Studies have shown that eating fatty fish can reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer. Japanese men tend to have lower risk of having prostate cancer because fish is part of their major every day diet. Therefore, I recommend you starting eating lots of tuna, salmon and whatever fish you like.
