Broccoli Prevents Development of Prostate Cancer – Dr Oz and Roizen

Two well known medical doctors in the US, Dr. Mehmet Oz of the popular  TV program “The Dr. Oz Show” and Dr Mike Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute have provided insights into how eating foods that constitute broccoli can help to prevent  and reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer in men.

In study they carried out, it has been revealed that men who eat broccoli and diet full of vegetables and fruits helps to cut down on the risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer by 25%. More details on this study are provided below:

When Dana Carvey auditioned for “Saturday Night Live” (in 1986!), he won a slot on the show with a satirical impression of a rock star singing “Choppin’ Broccoli.” Little did he know that power ballad could one day become the theme song for the war on prostate cancer. So, move over lettuce and tell potatoes the news (with apologies to Chuck Berry)!

Seems broccoli and a shopping cart full of fruits and veggies are packed with flavonoids (phytonutrients that reduce inflammation and prevent and repair cellular damage). And guys who eat flavonoid-packing foods slash their risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer by 25 percent. About 11 percent of diagnosed cases of prostate cancer are “aggressive,” but until recently it was difficult to be sure if you had a wait-and-watch form of the disease or one that called for surgery. There’s now a blood test that can pick out biomarkers for aggressive forms of the disease early enough to make treatment more effective. But the best situation is to stop prostate cancer before it starts!

How? Walk 10,000 steps a day; meditate in the morning and at night; avoid all tobacco; and chow down on a smorgasbord of fruits and veggies. The guys who benefited the most in the study favored cooked greens, citrus fruits and juices, such as oranges and grapefruits, and grapes, strawberries and onions. Other good sources of phytonutrients include: apples (the flavonoids are in the skin), blueberries, cabbage, capers, dark chocolate, all kinds of tea and, of course, (as Dana sang it) brrrrrocccccoli.

Dr. Mehmet Oz is host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” and Dr. Mike Roizen is chief medical officer at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute. For more information go to www.RealAge.com. Source.

So, if you are at risk of developing prostate cancer, it may be right for you to take advantage of the benefits of broccoli and other foods that contain flavonoids.

These can help reduce cell inflammation and also repair those that are damaged. It is good to know that these food substances can easily be sought in the market place and you really don’t have excuse not to get them.

With improved diagnostic method of detecting aggressive cancer of the prostate, it becomes more necessary to take these nutrients and prevent this cancer before it starts.
