Meat, dairy products, refined cereals and sugar may present a risk for developing prostate cancer.

Italian scientists carried out a study by observing the different types of food consumed and their influence in developing prostate cancer. A total of 1,294 men with prostate cancer and 1,451 control subjects participated in the study.

Researches summarized the results of the study: “Our analysis reveals that consumption of animal products (meat and dairy products), as well as refined cereals and sugar play an important role in the development of prostate cancer.”

Provegan remark: Only a vegan diet based on the seven basic rules is healthy.


Prostate cancer is the common cause of death in males.
