As one of the most prevalent cancers, prostate cancer has enormous public health significance and prevention strategies would attenuate its economic, emotional, physical and social impact. Until recently, however, we have had only modest information about risk factors for this disease, apart from the well-established characteristics of age, family history and place of birth. The large worldwide variation in the incidence of prostate cancer and the increased risk in migrants who move from low… Expand
Diet strategies for prostate cancer control
TLDR
This review critically addresses the natural products with the greatest potential to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, including, honey, vitamin E, selenium, soy, tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables and green tea. Expand
A Perspective on Prostate Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention
TLDR
Prostate cancer is a slowly developing cancer which offers opportunities for preventive interventions, but there are no known dietary or life style interventions that will have a major impact on prostate cancer risk. Expand
Chemoprevention of Prostate Cancer with Cruciferous Vegetables: Role of Epigenetics
TLDR
The ability of SFN, I3C or DIM to target aberrant epigenetic patterns, in addition to their effects on detoxification/carcinogen metabolism, may make them effective chemoprevention agents at multiple stages of the prostate carcinogenesis pathway. Expand
Prostate cancer and the influence of dietary factors and supplements: a systematic review
TLDR
From the wealth of evidence available, many recommendations can be made although more randomised control trials are required and these need to be carefully designed due to the many confounding factors and heterogeneity of the population. Expand
Antioxidants for prostate cancer chemoprevention: challenges and opportunities.
TLDR
It is proposed that for effective use of antioxidants for prostate cancer prevention, further high impact translational research is needed with special attention on selecting those patients who will benefit from such intervention, and it is important to validate predictive biomarkers from successful trials and combine this with knowledge of preclinical characterization of antioxidants that will eventually facilitate the development of 'personalized prostate cancer chemoprevention'. Expand
The Risk Factors of Prostate Cancer and Its Prevention: A Literature Review.
TLDR
The results of epidemiological, In vivo, in vitro, and early clinical studies suggested that selected dietary products and supplementation may play a role in PCa prevention. Expand
Future directions in the prevention of prostate cancer
TLDR
The clinical and preclinical evidence for dietary and pharmacological prevention of prostate cancer is discussed and an overview of future opportunities for chemoprevention is given. Expand

This review presents current scientific evidence outlining farm-to-fork effects on fruit and vegetable bioactive compounds in order to aid the development of new and reasonable strategies for cancer prevention. Expand
Food-based natural products for cancer management: Is the whole greater than the sum of the parts?
TLDR
The critical need for rigorous comparative research is suggested to identify which one of the two or both entities from nature would be best qualified to take on the mantle of cancer management. Expand

Role of diet in prostate cancer development and progression.
TLDR
Until further clinical trial data are available on specific supplements and prostate cancer prevention, it would be prudent to emphasize a diet consisting of a wide variety of plant-based foods and fish; this is similar to what is recommended for the primary prevention of heart disease. Expand
Dietary Agents in the Chemoprevention of Prostate Cancer
TLDR
This article summarizes epidemiological, clinical, and mechanistic studies and the significance of plant-derived dietary agents such as flavonoids, indoles, isothiocyanates, phenolics, monoterpenes, and complementary and alternative agents in the management of prostate cancer with recommendations for future studies to advance this area of research. Expand
Selenium and prostate cancer: biological pathways and biochemical nuances
TLDR
The in vitro and in vivo efficacy of selenium, mechanism of anti-carcinogenic action and synergy with micronutrients including its possible function in chemoprevention are discussed. Expand
Dietary fat and prostate cancer: current status.
TLDR
It is concluded that dietary fat may indeed be related to prostate cancer risk, although the specific fat components that are responsible are not yet clear. Expand
Cancer of the prostate: a nutritional disease?
TLDR
The evidence that nutritional factors play a role in the progression rate of prostate cancer and may help to explain the geographic variation in the incidence is reviewed. Expand

TLDR
Understanding the mechanisms by which various dietary nutrients exert their effects on PCa may make it possible to design effective drugs for treating PCa and to promote better nutrition and lifestyle changes in those at risk for PCa. Expand
Prostate cancer prevention
TLDR
The evidence and scientific data of a variety of prevention strategies including dietary fat reduction and supplementation with vitamins D and E, and selenium, and Dietary intake of soy, green tea, and tomato‐rich products (lycopene) are reviewed. Expand

Clinical trials in cancer prevention: current results and perspectives for the future.
TLDR
Nutritional science can play an important role in this effort through the use of new and emerging technologies to better understand the influence of bioactive food components on the genes, proteins, and cellular processes that are associated with cancer risk. Expand
Dietary intervention in the management of prostate cancer
TLDR
The strongest evidence regarding diet and prostate cancer relates to energy balance, and Urologists aspiring to best clinical practice should encourage their patients to achieve a healthful body weight through regular exercise and a healthfully plant-based diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
