Pomegranate Juice May Fight Prostate Cancer

Filed under: Prostate Cancer Prevention

Their theory is that when someone drinks pomegranate juice, the juice releases ellagitannins, which get digested into chemicals called urolithins, which may fight prostate cancer.

The researchers had good results in mice and are hoping to have similar results in people. Ellagitannins are also found in other fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and muscadine grapes.

The lump on my prostate was discovered 15 years ago. I was 66. I'm almost 82 now and still going strong. I've been a vegetarian for about 10 years. During that time I learned about the benefits of crucifers. You can find my interesting story at my blog.
