Is There Any Dietary Change That Will Help Treat Your Prostate Cancer?

Question: Is there any dietary change that will help treat your prostate cancer?

Answer: I think the diet's an incredibly important element of living with prostate cancer, and there are dietary changes that many of us would recommend with a real principle of that which is good for your heart is probably good for your prostate.

So, over the years we've learned a lot about what would certainly be beneficial in the long run. And those are such things as reducing animal fats, eating less red meats, eating more fruits and vegetables -- those that are rich in colors like red, blue. So blueberries, raspberries, watermelon, pomegranate, tomatoes, are all sort of things which are rich in natural lycopene, which a lot of folks will supplement with pills when you can actually get them with natural products that we have on our grocery shelves.

Other things like eating more fish, eating more almonds, walnuts -- which have a lot of good omega-3 fatty acids -- green teas, soy products from the Asian diets have shown to slow prostate cancer down. So I think those are all natural things that we could add and help with food choices.
