A new study shows that eating dairy products could possibly increase the chances of developing prostate cancer while a plant-based diet could reduce it. The dairy product consumption and development of prostate cancer are being scrutinized as the disease is found to be prevalent in the Western countries on a higher scale. The dairy products including milk and cheese are found to contain lot of calcium and thus, their consumption has to be limited to a certain extent. The Asian countries show fewer incidences of prostate cancer as dairy foods are consumed much less there.
The study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association was conducted by the researchers at the Mayo Clinic. The study shows plant-based diets to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer. The animal products, especially dairy products are found to double the chances and thus, resorting to vegan regimes is more preferred. Around 174,650 cases of prostate cancer on an annual basis are found to be prevalent among women compared to skin cancer. In the US, the second-largest rate of death is found to be caused by this type of cancer. African Americans are found to be the most affected. Our lifestyle of no exercise, more dairy product consumption, and smoking can all trigger cancer. Till date, no permanent cure for prostate cancer has been developed and thus, focusing on the diet is only assumed to help lower the risks. Another study had shown mushrooms to help prevent prostate cancer.
The type of food consumed is found to play an important role in keeping diseases away. On a similar note, a study published in Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases has shown men with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), especially ulcerative colitis, to have to be at a higher risk of prostate cancer. According to Yuqiu Ge from Jiangnan University, the IBD tends to change microbiomes and, in turn, increase prostate cancer risks.
