Cruciferous Vegetables (Sulforaphane) and Prostate Cancer: A Comprehensive Analysis


Prostate cancer (PC) is a disease typically associated with old age, although anomalies in the prostate tissue can be observed in men as young as their twenties or thirties. PC is generally considered to be slow-growing cancer. The long, relatively silent period of prostate cancer suggests that various therapies could potentially slow disease progression or prevent disease onset, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for invasive surgical procedures such as prostatectomy.

In the previous posts, we discussed various food ingredients such asLycopene in tomatoes, Polyacetylenic oxylipins in carrots, Vitamin K2 in sauerkraut, and nattothat have proven anti-cancer activities. This article will address the potential cancer-fighting properties of another natural gift – broccoli.

Foods Reducing the Risk of Prostate Cancer. Tomatoes

  • by


Lycopene, a member of the carotenoid family, is generously found in tomatoes and tomato-based products, pink grapefruit, and watermelon. Interestingly, despite their lack of red or orange color, asparagus, and parsley are also substantial sources of lycopene.

As a potent antioxidant, lycopene is vital in neutralizing reactive oxygen species. The human body, however, cannot synthesize lycopene alone; it must be supplied through our daily diet. Once absorbed, lycopene is primarily stored in the testes, liver, adrenal glands, and prostate. Its concentration in the testes is up to ten times higher than in other tissues, suggesting a unique biological role in these areas.

Whole foods vs supplements in the prevention of chronic diseases


It has long been noted that the regular consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is correlated with a low incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, etc. Scientists began attributing plant foods’ health benefits to various biologically active substances isolated from different parts of plants. However, the assumption that isolated individual antioxidants or phytochemicals can replace the intake of plant foods has proven to be erroneous, if not harmful. The results of clinical trials are not consistent with the beneficial effects of the dietary supplements and cannot explain the observed health advantages of diets rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Dietary supplements in clean form may not work in the same way as the ingredients of the whole food and, in addition to having fewer useful effects, may also be potentially dangerous.

Carrots – a food with proven anti-cancer power


Carrot is a gold mine in our kitchen, rich in health-beneficial phytochemicals such as carotenoids, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and polyacetylenes. Throughout the history of carrot cultivation, people have intuitively used its beneficial qualities, widely including it in their daily diet. Nowadays, scientific evidence backing carrot has been accumulating in terms of anticancer, cholesterol and cardiovascular disease lowering, anti-diabetic, anti-hypertensive, hepatoprotective, renoprotective, and wound healing benefits.
A person is often dismissive of what he is used to seeing every day in abundance. Therefore, many may not even suspect that they have at hand a product that can prevent or even cure many types of chronic diseases. This post will focus on carrots’ scientifically proven health benefits, particularly their outstanding anti-cancer properties.

Nothing is more convincing than your own experience. So, following the detailed scientific background of the Mediterranean diet’s benefits, the technology of the diet itself, and intermittent fasting, in a previous post, this short message will focus on why I ponder the Mediterranean diet as a decent diet to follow; my own experience. Here you can find out how I came to the idea of changing the diet, whether the Mediterranean diet fit with hard physical work or sports, and how the diet affected my weight and overall well-being and health.

A Pesco-Mediterranean diet with intermittent fasting: an ideal diet for health and longevity


Diet is one of the pillars determining a person’s health, particularly heart health. For the last three years, 25 leading American experts have ranked the Pesco-Mediterranean diet as the #1 among 35 other diets for overall health in terms of nutrition, safety, easiness to follow, effectiveness for weight loss, protection against cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. American Dietary Guidelines and American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association endorsed the traditional Mediterranean diet as the best diet for humanhealth and longevity.

Testosterone boosters: Zinc

Zinc – a master element to optimize testosterone in men.

Zinc (Zn) is humans’ most abundant trace metal after iron. It cannot be deposited in the body, the extra Zn is excreted together with sweat and other discharges. Therefore, regular dietary intake of the mineral is required. The human body contains 2–4 grams of Zn; most of it (nearly 90%) is found in muscles and bones, with the highest concentrations in the prostate and semen. Zn is the key element in the male reproduction system determining prostate gland function and growth of reproductive organs. Zinc is a component of over 300 enzymes and 1000 transcription factors and is involved in almost all physiological functions of our body: growth, immune response, reproduction, DNA synthesis, expression of genes, and cell division. Here we will focus on how Zn stimulates testosterone production and thereby defines the reproductive health in men.

Vitamin K2 Prevents Prostate Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, and Bone Weakness

  • by


It has long been noticed geographical or national differences in prostate cancer susceptibility. These variations were mostly attributed to the specificity of the diet and culinary preferences of different cultures. And this, in turn, suggests that some foods or ingredients of food may have chemoprotective properties against cancer cells. Lycopene, selenium, vitamins C, D, E, and K, green tea, silymarin, pomegranate, and Resveratrol are well-known dietary components that attracted considerable attention from scientists in terms of their anticancer potential. Here I’ll focus on vitamin K2 and its varieties as the natural food components capable of stopping the development of prostate cancer or slowing down its progression.
