Summary:

Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men. It is estimated that approximately 164,690 men are diagnosed yearly, and 29,430 will die. Although the primary risk factors are age, race, and family history/genetics, additional identified risk factors may respond to dietary changes and exercise. Healthcare professionals as a team can play a role in educating the patient with prostate cancer about sound nutritional advice that will benefit the patient and may have a significant impact on the treatment and prevention of prostate cancer. Learn which foods and nutrients may be of benefit and which may do harm.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education course is to provide registered dietitian nutritionists, health educators, and physical therapists with a summary of the current research on prostate cancer, including the disease’s prevalence, risk factors, and the role of diet in its prevention and treatment. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the primary risk factors for prostate cancer
  • Identify the current evidence for common nutrients and dietary compounds associated with decreasing the risk of prostate cancer
  • List two supplements that may increase the risk of prostate cancer
  • Describe how inflammation and obesity contribute to the development of prostate cancer
