Vegan is the best diet to protect against prostate cancer

Vegan is the best diet to protect against prostate cancer image

Vegans are less likely to develop prostate cancer.

Vegans are less likely to develop prostate cancer. The diet reduces the risk by around 35 per cent compared to a meat-based diet and even a vegetarian diet that includes milk and eggs, a new study has discovered.

A vegan diet, which excludes all animal products and by-products such as milk, eggs and cheese, is the best one to follow if you re worried about developing prostate cancer, researchers from the Loma Linda University in California have found.

In a study of 26,346 men and their diets, the researchers found that the incidence of prostate cancer was far lower in the 8 per cent following a vegan diet.

It seemed to offer a greater protection than any other diet, including a vegetarian diet, which allows the consumption of eggs, cheese and milk, a fish-only diet and a semi-vegetarian diet, where only white meat is occasionally eaten.

The overall protection of the vegan diet was 35 per cent, the researchers estimate. They think that eating fibre, soy and anti-inflammatory antioxidants from fruits and vegetables and eating less saturated fat, animal protein and serum insulin-like growth factor 1 from dairy products combine to create the most protective diet.
