Super foods proven to help fight prostate cancer

Published on 10/06/2013

Super foods broccoli, turmeric, pomegranate and green tea have been scientifically proven to fight prostate cancer, according to British researchers.

Scientists argue on the benefits of green tea

For the first time the study proves that these super foods help fight prostate cancer after a six-month research in Bedford involving 203 men, all of whom had prostate cancer.

The research was presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology and was conducted by Professor Robert Thomas from Cambridge University Hospitals.

The trial showed that those who took capsules containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli had significantly lower levels of PSA.

The PSA is a level of the protein developed in the prostate gland which is a significant indicator of prostate cancer. The men who took the rich food pill called Pomi-T saw a decrease of PSA by 63% compared to those who took a placebo pill.

Over 10,000 men die each year from prostate cancer and is the most common cancer in men, according to Cancer Research UK.

Previous studies have focussed on extracting minerals and vitamins from foods and putting them into supplements but most found that usually they did more harm than good.

Professor Thomas said: “Healthy eating and lifestyle is the main way of helping to combat the development of cancer but men can now also turn to a whole food supplement which has been shown to work.”

This landmark study was presented in Chicago alongside other prestigious research but whilst other studies can have multi-million pound funding, this study worked on a budget of £15,000.

“Our experience in offering high-quality clinical care, collaboration with cancer charities and world-class research with the University of Cambridge has resulted in findings which will have a world-wide impact.

“We hope this will help millions of men to help combat the onset of prostate cancer,” Thomas said.

A recent survey by Macmillan found that nearly one in two of UK residents will develop cancer in their lifetime by the year 2020.

Private health insurance can reward you for eating a healthier diet and some policies can give comprehensive cancer care.
