Eat one or more servings of broccoli every week can reduce the risk of prostate cancer, and the risk of cancer located that it is increasingly aggressive.
For the first time, a research group in the Research Institute of Food led by Professor Richard Mithen has provided an explanation of how to eat broccoli could reduce the risk of cancer on the basis of studies in men, as opposed to try to extrapolate from animal models.
The prostate cancer is the most common skin cancer for men in the western countries.
For the study men who are at risk of developing prostate cancer, ate 400 g of broccoli or 400 g of peas per week, in addition to its normal diet more than 12 months. Of tissue samples were taken from his prostate gland before the start of the trial and after 6 to 12 months, and the expression of each gene Affymetrix measured using the technology of microarrays.
Previous studies have suggested that 50 percent of the population who have a gene GSTM1 can get more benefits to eat broccoli, that those who lack this gene. The study showed that the presence of the gene GSTM1 has a profound effect on changes in the gene expression caused by eating broccoli. Read the rest of this entry »
