Hello fellas! It’s prostate cancer awareness time, and I know you have one burning question when it comes to this important manly part: “What is the best prostate cancer diet to prevent this disease?” Before we get into that, let’s address the elephant in the room: the increasing incidence of prostate cancer.

I was talking to a prostate cancer survivor a few weeks ago when he told me that several men he knows have been diagnosed in recent years, and he thinks this trend is increasing. Say it ain’t so! Is the incidence of prostate cancer increasing?

The answer is YES. However, part of this increase is due to the increasing use of the prostate-specific antigens (PSA) test. The PSA test is excellent for detecting prostate cancer; however, it will detect subclinical prostate cancer cases that might not have ever progressed to a clinical cancer case.

According to Stephens FO and Aigner KR in Basics of Oncology, “the PSA test is much less specific for prostate cancer; a raised index simply indicates increased prostate cell activity that may be due to benign prostate disease, latent prostate cancer…but “latent” prostate cancer may well remain non-invasive indefinitely.”


Studies are now showing one’s genes and race play a small part in prostate cancer development, with diet and lifestyle having a much more significant role than previously thought. The lowest incidence of prostate cancer is in African men from the continent of Africa as well as men in India and the Southeast Asia region. However, this same group of men (African and Asian) who have lived their entire lives in Western countries have a higher risk of the disease as compared to men in their home countries.

Medical researchers are now putting the puzzle together that lifestyle factors, including diet, weight, and exercise (all of which can be modified), are essential for prostate cancer prevention. Despite the above research, solid scientific evidence on an anti-cancer diet for prostate cancer is lacking. The few studies that are shedding light on the link between prostate cancer and diet suggest that natural cancer prevention, with a focus on a holistic approach, is the best approach to prevent this disease.

At The Cancer Detox, we educate people on natural cancer prevention, focusing on the latest scientific evidence. Here are the best cancer-fighting foods for prostate cancer prevention:

  • Vegetables – 20 servings a week (average of 2.8 servings a day) of any vegetable reduced the risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 41%
  • Cruciferous vegetables – 2.5 servings a week (0.3 servings a day) reduced the risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 27% (learn more about cruciferous vegetables here and why they are such significant cancer-fighting foods)

What foods cause prostate cancer? Here are the cancer-promoting foods to avoid:

  • Fruit juices – Eight servings a week (~1 serving a day) increases the risk of prostate cancer by 42%
  • French fries – One or more servings a week (0.1 serving a day) increases the risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 64% (Hardin J, Cheng I, Witte S. Impact of consumption of vegetable, fruit, grain, and high glycemic index foods on aggressive prostate cancer risk. Nutr Cancer. 2011;63:860-872)

So, based on this information, your prostate cancer diet for prevention would consist of eating at least 2.8 servings of all types of vegetables a day and 0.3 servings of cruciferous vegetables a day, plus avoiding French fries (they do appear to be the devil in food form) and fruit juices (though maybe an occasional fruit juice a month won’t drastically increase your risk).

I talk about another prostate cancer diet here where men with early-stage prostate cancer went on a vegan diet and did stress reduction techniques for one year, and at the end of that period, their PSA levels significantly decreased. Reference: Ornish D, et al. Intensive lifestyle changes may affect the progression of prostate cancer. J Urol. 2005;174:1065.
