Prostate cancer is a common prostate disease among men. With the continuous improvement of living conditions, men with prostate cancer still have an increasing trend. How to prevent the occurrence of prostate cancer? Diet health has always been the key to prevent disease, so what are the diets for preventing prostate cancer?
There are many foods to prevent prostate cancer. There are many foods in life that are not good or bad. Only the right way to eat them needs everyone to know.
1. Vitamins in diet
Research shows that the concentration of vitamin A in normal prostate is 5-7 times higher than that in prostate cancer tissue, indicating that vitamin A plays an important role in preventing the occurrence of prostate cancer. In addition, studies have shown that adequate intake of vitamin D can significantly reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Vitamin C and E, as important antioxidants in the body, can inhibit the growth and differentiation of prostate cancer. Therefore, middle-aged and elderly men should appropriately eat more foods rich in the above vitamins.
2. Fat in diet
There is a significant difference in the dietary structure between the people in the high and low incidence areas of prostate cancer. The Chinese food in the low incidence areas has less fat content, and more grains, vegetables, and soybean products, while the high incidence areas have the opposite. This phenomenon suggests that the fat in the food is one of the possible causes of prostate cancer. The fat in food mainly comes from beef, pork and other meat and vegetable oil.
3. Calories in diet
High calorie diet is a stimulating factor for prostate cancer. High calorie can accelerate cell mitosis, accelerate cell proliferation and lead to tumor formation. The incidence rate of prostate cancer in the high calorie diet group is 70% higher than that in the low calorie diet group.
4. Other in diet
Research shows that men who often eat beans have a lower probability of developing prostate cancer than men who do not often eat beans. An obvious example is that in Asia, where beans are widely eaten, the incidence rate of prostate cancer is far lower than that in Europe and the United States. Experts pointed out that phytoestrogens contained in bean foods can reduce the risk of androgens causing cancer. Many foods in nature contain phytoestrogens, such as soybeans, soybeans, peanuts, etc., so you can eat more appropriately. In addition, tea also contains rich substances that inhibit the prostate, such as flavonol catechuic acid, which has the effect of preventing prostate cancer, so you can drink more appropriately.
