Broccoli's the best defense against prostate cancer

Filed under: , ,

Hey guys, here's a great reason to put your distaste for broccoli aside and scarf some down at dinner tonight -- eating it regularly can significantly reduce your risk of prostate cancer. In fact, it's more effective against the cancer than any other food out there.

In a study, The US National Cancer Institute and Cancer Care Ontario in Toronto found that while regularly eating fruits and vegetables didn't necessarily reduce one's risk of prostate cancer, eating lots of leafy greens--particularly broccoli--was associated with a reduced risk of aggressive prostate cancer. Another healthy food that showed promising results? Cauliflower. So eat next time you're tempted to eat the meat and leave the veggies, don't--for your health's sake.
