Following Eight Lifestyle Recommendations Lowers Risk Of Aggressive Prostate Cancer

June 29, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study of 2,212 African American and white men (aged 40 to 70) newly diagnosed with prostate cancer has found that those who adhere to fewer than four of the eight lifestyle recommendations from the World Cancer Research Fund have a significantly higher risk of an aggressive form of the disease. The recommendations call for lower body mass index, more physical activity, eating foods of low caloric density, more fruits and non-starchy vegetables, lower levels of salt, more legumes and unrefined grains, and less red meat. Men who adhered to fewer than four of the eight recommendations had a 38 percent greater risk of aggressive tumors compared with men who followed four or more recommendations.
