Must-Read: Anti-Prostate Cancer Munchies
It’s Movember still — have you been growing your mustache, guys? — so our mind is definitely still on prostrate cancer and our ability to get it. And if you’re a guy, well, this should also be on your mind. But instead of just looking for ways to treat this once you get it, you should focus on prevention and how to keep the horrific prostate cancer from getting inside of your butthole and devastating your body. There are ways to actually keep prostate cancer from becoming a thing you have to deal with by avoiding, or eating, certain foods.
So, today, we’re heading on over to AskMen.com where they chat about four foods that have been proven to keep prostate cancer from getting into your body. For example, among the four that they provide, is:
Lycopene, an antioxidant
Why eat them?
Lycopene is an antioxidant compound, a carotenoid, which gives tomatoes their color. It is also one of the most widely studied anti-cancer agents. A 2004 review of all the studies to date on tomatoes found a slight reduction in the risk of developing prostate cancer in men with high blood levels of lycopene or with diets rich in tomatoes. In 2007, however, the largest study of its kind disputed these results. Fortunately, further studies of greater quality are currently underway that will hopefully put any doubt to rest. Notwithstanding those results, tomatoes are still chock-full of other beneficial vitamins and antioxidants and, thus, this little red fruit (yes, it’s a fruit) should be a part of any healthy diet.
Head on over to the link above to check out the other foods that will help you avoid prostate cancer, and then get on over to the grocery store as soon as possible in order to make sure that you do your best to ward off this scary, scary, scary disease.
