Eating Healthy Vegetable Fats Reduces Risk Of Developing Lethal Prostate Cancer

June 10, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who collected data on 4,600 men diagnosed with non-metastatic prostate cancer found that substituting healthy vegetable fats in the diet for animal fats significantly reduced the risk of developing lethal prostate cancer. Healthy vegetable fats include those found in olive and canola oils, nuts, seeds and avocados. Researchers followed the men from 1986 to 2010, during which time 1,064 men died from cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer and other cancers. The authors found that men who replaced 10 percent of their total daily carb calories with healthy vegetable fats had a 29 percent lower risk of developing lethal prostate cancer.
