"Prostate cancer generally affects men over 50, and is rarely found in younger men. It is the commonest type of cancer in men. Some ethnic groups have a higher chance of developing prostate cancer than others. For example, black African and black Caribbean men are more likely to develop prostate cancer than white men. Asian men have a lower risk of developing it."
I have been researching into prostrate cancer for few months now and it is refreshing to know that some vegetables/fruits we eat can help in the fight against this dreadful cancer: Macmillan cancer support Pomegranates and Prostate Health: A Research Report I was reading yesterday's newspaper when I came across this
Eat tomatoes with broccoli to fight prostate cancer: Tomatoes and broccoli are both known to help fight cancer, but together their impact is even more powerful.
Apparently, the combination of these colourful vegetables are effective in reducing the growth of the tumour. Tomatoes contain lycopene which is more effective when heated Broccoli contains polyphenols. Make your dish even more colourful with the addition of yellow [sweet] bell pepper which is a good source of antioxidant.
