If you haven’t heard of Movember, you’re probably very confused about the increased abundance of moustaches you’ve been seeing for the past month. While men are doing their part to raise prostate cancer funds and awareness, I thought I would do mine and share some of the best foods to prevent issues with the prostate.

1. Tomatoes: Tomatoes contain a component called lycopene which is a strong anti-oxidant and has been shown in research to prevent prostate cancer.

2. Broccoli: Broccoli has a constituent in it called sulphoraphane which helps support detoxification and is a strong antioxidant. Other veggies that are great for cancer prevention include others in the broccoli (brassica) family such as kale, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, swiss chard etc..

3. Pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc which is an essential mineral for prostate health. Try eating 2 tablespoons of freshly ground seeds/ day.

4. Cut Back on the Dairy: Studies have found that men who consume large amounts of dairy to be at increased risk for prostate cancer- so staying away from milk, cheese and butter can likely help with prevention.
