Reducing your risk of prostate cancer may be as easy as making smarter seafood selections, new research suggests.
A recent study published in the journal Environmental Research examined the effects of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)-harmful compounds found mostly in farm-raised fish-and their role in prostate cancer.
In this study, serum samples were taken from healthy men and men with prostate cancer. The serum samples were evaluated for 30 PCBs. Researchers found that the odds of prostate cancer among men with the highest concentrations of PCBs were over two times higher than the men with the lowest concentration.
Catch the benefits of fish without reeling in health-harming PCB's by going for wild-caught fish. Because most seafood in restaurants is “farm-raised”, your best bet is to buy fresh, frozen or canned seafood labeled “wild”, like those offered from Vital Choice.
Cut Prostate Cancer Risk by 48%
The Physicians’ Health Study evaluated more than 20,000 men and found that those eating this food five times a week had a 48% lower chance of death from prostate cancer than the men who ate less than one weekly serving.
