A low-fat diet in combination with supplementation with omega-3 rich fish oil may be associated with lower levels of pro-inflammatory substances and reduced cell progression scores in men with prostate cancer, research has suggested.
Research by DSM Nutritional Products provides further evidence of
the mechanism behind lycopene's protective role against prostate
cancer, giving extra support for its use in functional foods and

cancer - can reverse pre-cancerous...
After confirming that a combination of vitamin E and lycopene has a
positive effect on the growth of prostate tumours in mice,
scientists in the Netherlands have initiated a trial in men
suffering from the disease.
Scientists in Wales today suggested they have found a way to slow
down the metabolism of vitamins A and D, giving them the staying
power to help men with advanced prostrate cancer that no longer
responds to hormone therapy.
Lycopene, the tomato-derived antioxidant thought to fight prostate
cancer, may also help to inhibit benign tumours of the uterus,
which cause painful symptoms for millions of women, say
researchers, reports Dominique Patton.
Lycopene, the carotenoid found in tomatoes, may reduce the risk of
prostate cancer by inhibiting the male hormone's effect on the
prostate, report researchers from DSM this week, writes
A diet rich in vitamin E appears to protect against both prostate
cancer and bladder cancer, according to new research that lifts
hopes for the vitamin after disappointing recent studies, writes
Oil from the seeds of an Asian plant, already shown to fight
leukaemia, also appears to kill prostate cancer cells and shrink
human tumours grown in mice, report US researchers. Human trials

the plant-derived compounds.
Obese men with prostate cancer are more likely to have aggressive
tumors and to experience cancer recurrence after surgery compared
to men of normal weight or those who are overweight but not obese,
according to two new studies.
New research from UK-based Institute of Food Research reveals that
two food components recognised for their ability to fight cancer
are up to 13 times more powerful when put to work together. The

A low-fat, high-fibre diet rich in fruits and vegetables has no
impact on prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in men over a
four-year period, and does not affect the incidence of prostate
cancer, according to a study by US researchers.
Men diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer should try to reduce
the levels of fat and calcium in their diet in order to delay the
onset of a more serious form of the disease, according to research
from the US - a dilemma for those...
The polyphenols in red wine have already been shown to help lower
the risk of heart disease, but the latest research from Spain - one
of Europe's largest wine producing nations - shows that it can also
help fight the onset of...
A high level of lycopene in the blood serum is linked to a lower
risk of prostate cancer in new research from the US. The findings

Medical School has published a new epidemiological survey review
that confirms earlier studies suggesting that the consumption of
lycopene-rich foods can reduce...
A component of tomato sauce may help reduce DNA damage in the
prostate, a new study suggests. This may have implications for the
prevention or treatment of prostate cancer. The active ingredient
appears to be lycopene, an antioxidant...
