A Diet to Decrease PSAs

The Prevention of Prostate Cancer | What Men Should and Should Not Eat to Prevent Cancer of the Prostate


>

High levels of PSAs (Protein Specific Antigens) are a common denominator in men with Prostate Cancer.  Surgery reduces the levels to zero (0) but this diet reduces it and so the risk of developing Prostate Cancer and the need for surgery.


>

A Vegan diet reduces PSAs but, unless diagnosed with Prostate Cancer or opting to eat Vegan for animal welfare reasons, most men would find the Vegan option too radical.  However, men can still reduce their chances of Prostate Cancer by cutting down on dairy products and red meats.  If they cannot do that they should at least cut down or eradicate processed meats from their diets.

There are also food which should be included or prepared differently if already included.  Garlic, for instance, should be crushed, chopped or sliced and then – most importantly – left for ten minutes before use. This allows the beneficial components in garlic to develop.


Also, as widely known, tomato sauce is beneficial and cooked tomatoes are better than raw tomatoes.  In fact, tinned tomatoes might not taste as good but they are better for you.


>

Red foods and any vegetable containing Beta Carotene are good for health generally, but particularly good for men.  These too (like the tomatoes above) are better cooked – something to do with the absorption of the beneficial components.


>

Pomegranate juice, as well as being absolutely delicious, is another daily food for men.  Sweet potatoes should also be on their menus as often as possible.


>

Lastly but not least, didn’t your mother always tell you to eat your broccoli?  Well, eat your broccoli and your cabbage.  These should be steamed and not boiled to maximise their goodness.
