Eating tomatoes may lower the risk of prostate
cancer, research suggests.
Men who consume more than ten portions of
tomatoes each week reduce their risk by about 20
per cent, according to a UK study.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer
in men worldwide, with 35,000 new cases and around
10,000 deaths in the UK every year.
Cancer experts recommend eating a balanced diet
which is high in fruit and vegetables and low in red
and processed meat, fat and salt.
The Bristol team analysed the diets and lifestyles
of around 20,000 British men aged between 50
They found men who
consumed more than ten
portions of tomatoes each
week---such as fresh toma-
toes, tomato juice and
baked beans---saw an 18
per cent reduction in
prostate cancer risk.
Eating the recommend-
ed five servings of fruit or
vegetables or more a day
was also found to decrease
risk by 24 per cent, com-
pared with men who ate
"Our findings suggest that tomatoes may be impor-
tant in prostate cancer prevention," said Vanessa Er,
from the School of Social and Community Medicine
at Bristol University.
"However, further studies need to be conducted
to confirm our findings, especially through human
"Men should still eat a wide variety of fruits and
vegetables, maintain a healthy weight and stay active."
The cancer-fighting properties of tomatoes are
thought to be due to lycopene, an antioxidant which
can protect against DNA and cell damage.
The researchers also looked at two other dietary
components linked with prostate cancer risk---sele-
nium, found in flour-based foods such as bread and
pasta, and calcium, found in dairy products such as
milk and cheese.
Men who had optimal intake of these three dietary
components had a lower risk of prostate cancer, they
Commenting on the study, Dr Iain Frame of
Prostate Cancer UK said there was not yet enough
evidence to make concrete recommendations on
which specific foods men should eat to reduce their
risk of prostate cancer.
"What we do know is that men shouldn t rely too
heavily on one type of food, such as tomatoes," he
"A healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit
and vegetables, together with regular exercise is by
far the best option."
Tom Stansfeld of Cancer Research UK added:
"While eating foods rich in lycopene---such as toma-
toes---or selenium may be associated with a reduction
in the risk of prostate cancer, this has not been
proven, and this study can t confirm whether there
is a link between diet and prostate cancer risk.
"Diet and cancer prevention is a complex issue
with few black and white answers; we encourage
everyone to eat a balanced diet which is high in fruit
and vegetables and low in red and processed meat,
fat and salt."
The research, published in the journal Cancer Epi-
demiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, was carried
out in collaboration with the Universities of Cam-
bridge and Oxford. (BBC)
