Pomegranate Juice May Fight Prostate Cancer

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.

Selenium and Vitamin E Reduce Prostate Cancer Risk

Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle report that higher dietary intake of selenium reduces prostate cancer risk when combined with high vitamin E intake.

Overall, the researchers found no association between serum selenium and prostate cancer risk. However, higher serum selenium correlated with a lower likelihood of prostate cancer in men who reported a high vitamin E intake (more than the average of 28 IU per day) and those taking multivitamins

Tomatoes and Broccoli Fight Prostate Cancer Together

Tomatoes and broccoli, both powerful cancer fighters, appear to be especially effective against prostate cancer when eaten together.

"To get these effects, men should consume daily 1.4 cups of raw broccoli and 2.5 cups of fresh tomato, or 1 cup of tomato sauce, or 1/2 cup of tomato paste. I think it’s very doable for a man to eat a cup and a half of broccoli per day or put broccoli on a pizza with 1/2 cup of tomato paste," said Canene-Adams.
