For many men with prostate cancer, prostate cancer is not that scary. Prostate cancer is just one of the most abominable diseases in men's prostate. The most important thing to do for this abominable disease is to actively receive treatment and fight against the disease to the end. At the same time, dietary therapy for prostate cancer is also very good.
The reason why I recommend dietary therapy for prostate cancer is that a healthy diet is more beneficial for patients to maintain physical strength and fight disease, and can also help them fight disease together.
In addition to using some professional treatment methods to treat prostate cancer in clinical practice, of course, some auxiliary treatment methods will also be added, and the most commonly used is dietary therapy. Now, let's briefly introduce the matters needing attention in the dietary treatment of prostate cancer:
Fat inhalation is positively correlated with prostate cancer, especially saturated fat. Many studies have shown that excessive inhalation of animal fat, meat, and dairy products can increase the risk of prostate cancer. It is worth noting that these diets tend to have high levels of total and saturated fat. It is difficult to separate these related variables individually, and it is also difficult to directly associate one of these food lists with the risk of prostate cancer. In traditional North American diets, about 40% of the calories come from fat, while the recommended diet contains no more than 30% of the calories from fat.
Vitamin D can prevent prostate cancer. Prostate epithelial cells contain vitamin D receptors. Normal vitamin D levels in the blood can inhibit the continued differentiation of established cancer cells. Therefore, vitamin D deficiency can lead to an increased risk of prostate cancer. As long as dietary intake of vitamin D is at or near the recommended level, the risk of prostate cancer is normal. Numerous studies have shown that intake of vitamin D above recommended levels does not reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Vitamin E for prostate cancer has not been widely studied. Some researchers say that lower levels of vitamin E in the blood are associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. There are also studies that say there is no relationship between the two. In another study, someone investigated 2. Ninety thousand Finnish smokers who inhale 50 milligrams of vitamin E supplements per day have a 30% to 40% lower risk of prostate cancer or death. Vitamin E can affect some prescription drugs. For the vast majority of people, the upper limit for the safe intake of vitamin E is 1000 milligrams per day. Beyond this number, vitamin E can act as an oxidation enhancer rather than a protective antioxidant.
Vitamin A and β Carotene
So far, there is no clear link between prostate cancer and vitamin A inhalation. Some studies have shown that vitamin A deficiency can lead to an increased risk of prostate cancer, while others have shown that vitamin A supplements neither provide protection nor increase the risk of prostate cancer. The source of vitamin A is important. In Asia, vitamin A mainly comes from vegetables, while in North America, vitamin A mainly comes from fat. β Carotene is a type of carotene that can be converted into vitamin A. Just like vitamin A, β The relationship between carotene inhalation and the risk of prostate cancer is also unclear.
Inhaling more than 2000 milligrams of calcium per day can triple the risk of prostate cancer. However, for the sake of bone health and prevention of osteoporosis, an appropriate amount of calcium per day is necessary. It is recommended to inhale 1000 to 1200 mg of calcium per day.
The above is a brief introduction to the role of various vitamins and calcium in the treatment of prostate cancer. Of course, in addition to this, foods containing zinc can also play a significant role in the treatment of such diseases. Therefore, it is recommended that patients should also pay attention to their daily diet.
The above vitamins and calcium are all nutrients needed by patients with prostate cancer. Although dietary therapy for prostate cancer cannot cure prostate cancer, it is the most necessary partner for men with prostate cancer to overcome prostate cancer disease, and also a comrade fighting side by side. Therefore, I hope that patients with prostate cancer will recover as soon as possible.
