Cut Your Risk for Prostate Cancer Diagnosis In HalfProstate cancer diagnosis can be decreased significantly by simply eating more vegetables.

See the following from Best Life on prostate cancer.
Decrease Prostate Cancer Diagnosis
"Eating fruits and vegetables daily can reduce the risk of being diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer - the kind that metastasizes. According to a new study from researchers at the National Cancer Institute, most of this effect is due to cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.
Researchers tracked the diets of 29,361 men for four years and found that eating cauliflower once a week cuts the risk of prostate cancer in half. Cruciferous vegetables are rich in glucosinolates, compounds that boost the production of cancer-fighting enzymes."
This finding on prostate cancer diagnosis offers us a simple way to significantly decrease our risks as men for developing aggressive prostate cancer but it also offers a glimmer of hope for those that are not treating prostate cancer even though they have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
If the glucosinolates boost the bodies natural production of cancer-fighting enzymes then one could easily guess that their prostate cancer would be less likely to grow or metastasize... or at least the diet could slow the process if not completely stop the progression of prostate cancer. As we all know; slowing or stopping the progression of any disease will help with human longevity even if it is just a little.
