According to the Hindustan Times report, researchers studied the eating habits of 15,296 people in Spain between 1992 and 1996.
The study found that “aggressive prostate cancer” developed in 609 people in this surveillance group who did not have healthy eating habits.
“The findings show that avoiding unhealthy eating habits may be the best nutritional strategy to prevent aggressive prostate cancer,” said Adela Castello-Pastor, one of the researchers.
Castello-Pastor emphasized that a healthy diet can also reduce the risk of developing other chronic diseases.
Unhealthy eating habits are known as consuming high-fat dairy products, processed meat and meat products, sweets and grain products, as well as calorie drinks.
On the other hand, in the study, it was pointed out that healthy eating habits did not have an effect on the risk of prostate cancer.
