High Fiber Diet Retards Prostate Cancer In Mouse Study

January 9, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study in mice with prostate cancer has found that consuming a diet high in fiber kept tumors from creating new blood vessels – a process known as angiogenesis – and slowed down metabolization of energy in the form of glucose. According to the researchers, the findings suggest the possibility that a diet rich in fiber might be a way to control the progression of the disease, at least in early-diagnosed patients. The mice in the study were fed inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), a major component of high-fiber diets. MRI was used to monitor the disease in these and control mice.
