Vegetable Fats Can Extend Age Prostate Cancer

A recent study showed that adding healthy vegetable fats into the diet can extend the life of patients with prostate cancer. Based on research at the University of California, San Francisco, replacing carbohydrates and animal fats with vegetable fats such as avocados, olive and canola oil, and nuts can lower the risk of lethal prostate cancer patients with or died from other causes.

Health Benefits of Switch Animal Fats to Vegetable Fats for Prostate Cancer Patient

The study included patients with non-metastatic cancer, with the goal of helping the development of prostate cancer through diet program. By Erin L Richman, researchers from the USCF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

"In addition to the benefits of unsaturated fats and harmful effects of saturated fat on cardiovascular health are well known, we study this time shows other potential benefits of the consumption of unsaturated fats for people with prostate cancer."

The researchers examined the intake of saturated fats, unsaturated and trans fats from both animal and vegetable sources. Data they can derive from previous studies that began in 1986. 

Studies on fat intake included 4,557 men who had been diagnosed with non-metastatic prostate cancer from 1986 to 2010. During the study period, 1064 people died and the majority of deaths are caused by cardiovascular disease (31%), prostate cancer (21%) and other types of cancers (nearly 21%).

Of the study the researchers found that the new fact: Men who replace 10 percent of total daily calories carbohydrate them with vegetable fats have a risk of lethal prostate cancer and a 29% lower risk of death 26% lower. Consumption of healthy oils and nuts are believed to increase plasma antioxidant which can prevent the development of prostate cancer. 

The researchers claim by adding a teaspoon of oil (olive or colada) into your diet each day may lower the risk of lethal prostate cancer by 29 percent and reduce the risk of death by 13 percent. While consuming one serving of nuts (28 g) per day may reduce the risk of lethal prostate cancer by 18 percent and decrease the risk of death by 11 percent.

Richard added overall, their research suggests prostate cancer patients to follow a heart-healthy diet program where carbohydrate calories switch with unsaturated oils and nuts to lower their risk of death.
