Leading researchers to reveal comprehensive dos and don'ts for prostate cancer
Date:10/13/2007

is a prostate cancer disease management option that monitors prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels as well as the grade and stage of the tumor until a more aggressive treatment option may become necessary. One-quarter to one-half of all cases of diagnosed prostate cancer in the U.S. and Europe are considered candidates for this kind of approach, which researchers hope leads to better outcomes for patients with low-risk disease. One aspect of this management approach may include specific dietary modifications such as minimizing intake of red, processed or well-done meats.

Angelo De Marzo, M.D., Ph.D., along with colleague William G. Nelson M.D., Ph.D. of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, have been studying one of the most high profile issues around diet and prostate cancer: dont overheat your meat. Weve known since the 1980s that ingesting meat cooked at very high temperatures can cause cellular mutations, some of which can lead specifically to prostate cancer. What weve found now in the rodent prostate is that the specific areas within the organ that develop cancer after exposure to the meat compounds also first become inflamed and develop a form of atrophy that resembles damaged areas in the human prostate that are likely a very early indicator of a problem. According to De Marzo, if scientists can develop markers of damage and dietary exposures it may be possible for doctors to intervene before cancer ever develops in the prostate.

De Marzo also has some practical advice: If youre going to eat meat cooked at high temperatures, like I still enjoy, flip your hamburgers more often so the outside does not burn, marinate the meat in ingredients (such as teriyaki sauce) that dont create a crust, precook it in the microwave, or at the least scrape off the charred material. De Marzo also suggests replacing chicken, beef, veal or lamb with soy protein or fish, taking a page from the Asian diet where disease rates are ve
