Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the developed world and is
increasing in incidence in the developing world. Its long latency and
geographical variation (some populations are less prone to dying from it)
suggest the possibility of prevention or postponement by dietary modification.
In a case control study 130 prostate cancer patients were compared to 274
hospital controls. Increasing levels of consumption of Green Tea decreased the
risk of prostate cancer. Green Teas protective effect was powerful decreasing
the risk of developing prostate cancer by 86% after adjusting for the intake of
fruits and vegetables and other factors. If the men consumed the highest
quantity of Green Tea and also consumed Lycopene the protection was even
greater. The study was performed at the School of Public Health, Curtin
University of Technology, Perth, Australia, and is published in the current
issue of the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2007;16 Supplement.
