Mediterranean Diet May Help Men With Prostate Cancer

Grapes are a time-honored component of the Mediterranean diet

The traditional Mediterranean diet lowers the risk of several cancers, one of which is prostate cancer. Now we have evidence that the diet can help prevent progression of early-stage prostate cancer.

In a study to examine a Mediterranean diet in relation to prostate cancer progression in men on active surveillance, researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center found that men with localized prostate cancer who reported a baseline dietary pattern that more closely follows the key principles of a Mediterranean-style diet fared better over the course of their disease.
