The Tomato Effect: Lycopene curbs cancer cell growth

Lycopene is a nutrient found in tomatoes and other fruits that has been researched for its preventative effects in both cardiovascular disease and cancer. A recent study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food demonstrated that lycopene supplements decreased the proliferation of prostate cancer cells. Researchers treated human prostate cancer cells with a lycopene supplement [...]

Shedding Light on Prostate Cancer: Vitamin D from sun found to decrease risk

In the largest such study to date, a research team from three cancer centers measured sunlight exposure in men and found that increased exposure to sunlight may decrease the risk of prostate cancer. The researchers, led by Esther John, PhD, of the Northern California Cancer Center, found that men with high sun exposure had half [...]

Can new diet kick prostate cancer?

Men with early stage prostate cancer who make intensive changes in diet and lifestyle may stop or perhaps even reverse the progression of their illness, say researchers at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). The research team studied 93 men with biopsy-proven prostate cancer who had elected not to undergo conventional treatment. They [...]

Pomegranate for Prostate: Extract combats cancer cells, say researchers

The extract or juice of the pomegranate shows major promise to combat prostate cancer, say researchers at University of Wisconsin Medical School. Earlier research has shown that the pomegranate is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, and is effective against tumours in mouse skin. In fact, pomegranate juice has higher anti-oxidant activity than do red [...]

Selenium cuts two common cancers

A new study says that higher intake of selenium may reduce colorectal cancer risk. In the past, selenium has been associated with cancer protection, particularly prostate, lung and colon cancers. To gain better insight into selenium’s anti-cancer role, researchers from the University of Arizona analyzed data from three completed clinical trials, each with several hundred [...]

Green Tea and Cancer: Study finds supplement cuts prostate cancer risk

After a year's oral administration of green tea catechins (GTCs), only one man in a group of 32 at high risk for prostate cancer developed the disease, compared to nine out of 30 in a control, according to a team of Italians led by Saverio Bettuzzi, PhD. "Numerous earlier studies, including ours, have demonstrated that [...]

Good Fats Good for Prostate: Omega-3s appear to slow tumour growth

Researchers investigating the role of fatty acids in the aggressiveness of early stage prostate cancer have found that higher concentrations of polyunsaturated fat, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, were linked to less aggressive tumour growth. “Research has shown that populations with a low-fat diet have lower rates of prostate cancer, although studies about [...]

Diet Kicks Prostate Cancer: Vegan diet with supplements can inhibit tumours

Men with early stage prostate cancer who make intensive changes in diet and lifestyle may stop or perhaps even reverse the progression of their illness, say researchers at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). The research team studied 93 men with biopsy-proven prostate cancer who had elected not to undergo conventional treatment. They [...]

The E Factor: Gamma-tocopherol, form of vitamin E, has anticancer power

The form of vitamin E found in many plant seeds might halt the growth of prostate and lung cancer cells, according to a Purdue University study. A team led by Qing Jiang has found that gamma-tocopherol, which occurs naturally in walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, and in corn and sesame oils, inhibits the proliferation of lab-cultured [...]

Slow Prostate Cancer: Tea compounds inhibit tumour growth

Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles were able to detect tea polyphenols in prostate tissue after a very limited consumption of tea. More importantly, the scientists found that prostate cancer cells grew more slowly when placed in a medium containing blood of men who had consumed either green or black tea for [...]
