Superfoods target killer cancer in men

Have your say

specialists have discovered how a handful of so called “superfoods” can help fight prostate cancer.

Broccoli and pomegranate have been scientifically proven to help combat the disease, along with the spice tumeric and green

The ground-breaking findings by experts from Cambridge, presented at a cancer conference in Chicago, showed that prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels of those who took a capsule containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli were 63 per cent lower than those who did not.

The PSA is a level of the protein produced by the prostate gland which is an indicator of prostate cancer.

Although foods such as pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli have demonstrated multiple anti-cancer effects before, this is the first time they have firmly established an influence on markers of cancer progression within a scientifically robust evaluation.
