New study finds a link between low-fat diet and lower risk of prostate cancer

A new study has found that a diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables and low-sodium and salt diets may lower your risk of developing prostate cancer by about 20 percent.

The study, published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, found that men who followed a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet for eight weeks were at a higher risk of becoming prostate cancer.

A low-glycemic index diet is also a great way to lower your sugar intake and also lower your blood pressure, the authors said.

They also said that a lower risk is possible because the study subjects followed a very low-calorie diet and also a low salt diet.

They said that the risk reduction from low-SOD diets was similar to a diet low in saturated fat and high in fiber.
