Lower your risk for prostate cancer

There’s no sure way to prevent prostate cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic staff, but here are their dietary recommendations.

Consider the following changes to your diet.

  • Reduce your intake of fat.
  • Limit fatty foods, or choose low-fat varieties.
  • Use plant-based fats in place of animal fats.
  • Eat more fruits and veggies.
  • Eat more salmon, sardines, tuna, and trout for their omega-3 fatty acid levels.
  • Reduce your intake of dairy products.
  • If you drink tea, consider choosing green tea.
  • Isoflavones are linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer – eat tofu, kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils, and peanuts.
