Abstract:Increasing evidence suggests that diet influences the initiation and progression of prostate cancer. Herein, we review associations of specific foods and nutrients with prostate cancer, summarizing important and clinically relevant emerging data on this complex topic. Foods and nutrients associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer include lycopene, soy, cruciferous vegetables, vitamin E and selenium. Although prospective clinical trials of dietary supplements and dietary modification to prevent or control prostate cancer are underway, definitive clinical evidence is currently lacking.
