Men With Prostate Cancer Should Eat Healthy Vegetable Fats

UC San Francisco-led Study Finds Consuming Olive Oil and Nuts May Improve Survival

Men with prostate cancer may significantly improve their survival chances with a simple change in their diet, a new study led by UC San Francisco has found.

By substituting healthy vegetable fats – such as olive and canola oils, nuts, seeds and avocados – for animal fats and carbohydrates, men with the disease had a markedly lower risk of developing lethal prostate cancer and dying from other causes, according to the study.

The research, involving nearly 4, 600 men with non-metastatic prostate cancer, could help with the development of dietary guidelines for men with the disease. While prostate cancer affects millions of men around the world, little is known about the relationship between patients’ diets following their diagnosis and progression of the disease.

The study was published online on June 10 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

“Consumption of healthy oils and nuts increases plasma antioxidants and reduces insulin and inflammation, which may deter prostate cancer progression, ” said lead author Erin L. Richman, ScD, a post-doctoral scholar in the UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

“The beneficial effects of unsaturated fats and harmful effects of saturated and trans fats on cardiovascular health are well known, ” Richman said. “Now our research has shown additional potential benefits of consuming unsaturated fats among men with prostate cancer.”

Analyzing Intake of Fats from Various Sources

Nearly 2.5 million men in the United States currently live with prostate cancer and another quarter-million men are expected to be diagnosed this year. One in six men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with the disease during their lifetime.

In recent years, evidence has indicated that diet might be an important way for men with prostate cancer to take an active role in determining their disease outcome and overall health. Research on advanced prostate cancer has suggested that fat intake may be relevant to disease progression, but this is the first study to examine fat consumption post-diagnosis in relation to risk of lethal prostate cancer and overall survival.

The new paper analyzed intake of saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and trans fats as well as fats from animal and vegetable sources.

The data were derived from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, which began in 1986 and is sponsored by the Harvard School of Public Health and is funded by the National Cancer Institute.

The fat intake study involved 4, 577 men who had been diagnosed with non-metastatic prostate cancer between 1986 and 2010. During the study timeframe, 1, 064 men died, primarily from cardiovascular disease (31 percent), prostate cancer (21 percent) and other cancers (nearly 21 percent).

The authors uncovered a striking benefit: Men who replaced 10 percent of their total daily calories from carbohydrates with healthy vegetable fats had a 29 percent lower risk of developing lethal prostate cancer and a 26 percent lower risk of dying from all causes.

Health dangers of GMO foods

by Tek_Jansen

Hasn’t research shown GM foods to be safe?
No. The only feeding study done with humans showed that GMOs survived inside the stomach of the people eating GMO food. No follow-up studies were done.
Various feeding studies in animals have resulted in potentially pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, smaller brains, livers, and testicles, partial atrophy or increased density of the liver, odd shaped cell nuclei and other unexplained anomalies, false pregnancies and higher death rates.
But aren’t the plants chemically the same, whether or not they are GM?

We need to eat plants to live

by qveggie4life

That's just nature, and I have no problem with harming non-sentient life to survive. We don't need to use animals for food in our modern society, so the choice that will minimize harm to animals, the environment, human health and provide the maximum sustainability for the world's food supply is obvious.
We seem to have the same priorities - the food I eat is also very tasty, and is much more nutritious and healthy than animal-source foods, which contribute to cancer (primarily colon, prostate and breast), diabetes (I & II), heart disease, poor bone health, obesity and many other health problems.
