Green tea and broccoli ward off prostate cancer

Laura Donnelly London

Green tea and broccoli can help fight prostate cancer, researchers have discovered.

Men who had been treated for the disease were given a capsule containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli.

At the end of the trial, levels of PSA – a protein that is an indicator of the cancer – were 63pc 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 Bedford Hospital and Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, England, said: "We hope this will help millions of men combat the onset of prostate cancer." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
