Green tea and broccoli 'can fight prostate cancer'

Laura Donnelly

GREEN tea and broccoli can help fight prostate cancer, a British study has suggested.

Sufferers of the disease were given a capsule containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli. After the trial, levels of PSA – a protein that is an indicator of the cancer – were 63 per cent lower than in those who took a placebo.

Previous research has suggested such foods have an anti-cancer effect, but the British study is the first to demonstrate such an impact on sufferers of prostate cancer.

Professor Robert Thomas, a consultant at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, England, will present the results to the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago.

He said: "We hope this will help millions of men combat the onset of prostate cancer."
