Green tea and broccoli ward off prostate cancer
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)
