SUPPLEMENTS

  • vitamin D3 supplement of 2000 IU daily
  • long-chain n-3 fatty acids
  • linoleic acid

Conclusions: Higher blood levels of long-chain n-3 fatty acids, mainly found in marine foods, and of linoleic acid, mainly found in non-hydrogenated vegetable oils, are associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. The direct associations of linoleic acid metabolites with prostate cancer risk deserve further investigation.

========================================================
seed

  • Canola oil

stem

  • Asparagus (carotenoids + asparagine -)

whole grains

  • Unprocessed whole grains such as oats, brown rice, barley

cayenne, spur or Tabaco peppers, and green or red chili peppers (? prostatitis <- capsaicin but some say causes apoptosis of prostate cells so beneficial )
beef liver (carotenoids)
Turkey (zinc)
arachidonic and α-linolenic acids
Omega-3 (good in fish but not capsules ??)

  • Cold-water fish (zinc + selenium +) – poached, baked or grilled better

    • sardines
    • trout
    • tuna

leaves

  • light green lettuce and dark leafy green vegetables – one study said they were bad
  • wheat -> prostatitis (choline)

seeds

  • rice (arsenic)

Red and Processed Meat

  • Heme iron intake,
    nitrite and nitrate consumption, and
    grilling and barbecuing all were associated with higher risk. (heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons)

Poultry with skin
Dairy

  • Butter
  • Cheese – high or low fat
  • Milk – high or low fat (some say low fat slightly better ?)

Sodium
Eggs
Omega-6 Fatty Acids (linoleic acid -> arachidonic acid)

  • corn oil

  • sunflower oil
  • cottonseed oil
  • soybean oil
  • other polyunsaturated oils

Trans-fatty Acids (trans isomers of oleic and linoleic acids)

  • margarines
  • microwave popcorn
  • fried and some baked foods

The highest choline-rich foods are:

  • Egg yolks (egg whites are fine)
  • Organ meats
  • Wheat germ
  • Chicken
  • Pork
  • Beef
  • Cow milk and related products (butter, yogurt, etc.) (Ca ?)

seaweed
γ-linolenic and dihomo-γ-linolenic acids, fatty acids resulting from the metabolism of linoleic acid
