Prostate Cancer Prevention Superfoods: Nuts, Berries and Tea!
As part of male health awareness for the month of November, we’re looking at the main detriments to men’s health and how they can be prevented. The Movember movement, an initiative dedicated to male health, is working hard to reduce the number of men who die prematurely from either suicide, prostate cancer, or whose lives have been affected by testicular cancer. When looking at men’s physical health, a lot of focus is put on recognising the symptoms of both prostate and testicular cancer in order to catch them at their early stages, as well as doing the utmost to prevent cancer in males entirely. Whether it is doing manual checks, going to the doctor for regular tests, or by simply making sure to live a healthy lifestyle and eating cancer prevention superfoods, every little bit is important.
Part of this healthy lifestyle also includes a balanced diet that reduces processed foods and includes certain ingredients which are believed to have cancer-fighting properties. Here are our top picks:
Nuts, especially Brazil nuts, are believed to help fight cancer as a result of the chemical selenium. Although research is still inconclusive, nuts are still considered a source of healthy fats and are a great in-between meal snack.
Like nuts, there are such a variety of berries available providing numerous choices for those who are not keen on all berry types. Whether it’s strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries, all these berries are rich in antioxidants which amongst many other benefits, are believed to reduce the risk of cancer. The best thing about berries, is they’re not only a filling mid-day snack, but they can very easily be transformed into smoothies, or even added to salads.
Green Tea is a welcomed addition to any diet. It lowers cholesterol and can be an easy way to prevent prostate cancer. It can be consumed easily or flavoured to add variety.
The food items we choose to incorporate into our healthy diets must be easy to eat and consume, as otherwise one may not be inclined to eat them as regularly. Whilst there are other ingredients thought to be cancer prevention superfoods, nuts and berries are brilliant for quick snacks which also have cancer-fighting properties, whilst green tea is an easy hot drink to warm you up whilst protecting you from the inside too.
