Joelle Reizes - November 30, 2012
Today marks the last day of Movember, a month-long campaign to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. We’ve decided to end the month with a bang and focus on some major prostate cancer headlines you should be aware of.
A healthy diet is a given when it comes to promoting health, no matter what condition you’re trying to avoid. With prostate cancer prevention, certain foods have been found to lower risk of developing the disease.
This Fox News article lists the top foods that prevent prostate cancer, how they help lower risk and how you should prepare them. Tomatoes are listed as the first prostate cancer-fighting food. Why? Former studies have shown a link between the vitamins and antioxidants in tomatoes and a lower risk of developing prostate cancer. Further studies on tomatoes and prostate cancer are ongoing.

Study: Drinking Soda Raises Prostate Cancer Risk
Previous studies have linked drinking large amounts of soft drinks can raise a person’s chances of becoming obese. One new study found that the fizzy drinks can also raise prostate cancer risk.
“Among the men who drank a lot of soft drinks or other drinks with added sugar, we saw an increased risk of prostate cancer of around 40 percent,” said Isabel Drake, a PhD student at Lund University. The study’s findings will be published in the upcoming edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
