The prostate is a walnut-sized gland in the male reproductive system. Relatively high concentrations of zinc are found in the prostate, and it is considered an important mineral for prostate health.
Prostate cancer is very common in the United States and Europe, usually affecting men over 50 years old. Extensive research has shown that adding certain foods to the diet helps prevent and reverse prostate cancer.
|Avocado||Contains a complex matrix of carotenoids and tocopherols, as well as the monounsaturated fat to help assimilate these vitamins, that inhibits the growth of prostate cancer cells.|
|Broccoli||Weekly consumption of broccoli dramatically reduces risk of advanced-stage prostate cancer. When eaten in combination with tomatoes, broccoli is even more effective at fighting prostate cancer. Eat only organic, raw or lightly steamed broccoli for cancer-fighting effects.|
|Cauliflower||Weekly consumption of cauliflower dramatically reduces risk of advanced-stage prostate cancer. When eaten with turmeric, cauliflower significantly reduces tumor growth and the spread of cancer cells. Eat organic, raw or lightly steamed broccoli for strongest cancer-fighting effects.|
|Hot Peppers||The capsaicin in hot peppers has been shown to cause prostate cancer cells to destroy themselves.|
|Pumpkin Seeds||Shown to effectively treat prostate inflammation and other prostate ailments.|
|Tomatoes||Reduce the risk of prostate cancer, especially when eaten in conjunction with broccoli or green tea.|
