Carrots Cut Men’s Prostate Cancer Risk by 50%: A new meta-study out of China has just shown that eating one large carrot (100 grams) daily may decrease prostate cancer risk by a stunning 50% in men. The study noted a 5% risk reduction for every 10 grams eaten daily, or full serving eaten weekly. But it’s not the beta-carotene that’s doing it. It’s the alpha-carotene (carrots are the richest source). This is confirmed by another very recent study out of Japan showing that men with the highest intake of alpha-carotene from all sources had 54% less risk of prostate cancer. And yet another study out of the USA showed men with the highest alpha-carotene intake were 51% less likely to have high PSA levels – a marker for prostate cancer. In both those studies, beta-carotene was found to offer no protection. Alpha-carotene is a powerful antioxidant: it’s also been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer, bladder cancer, lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer in large population studies. Carrots are the single richest source of alpha-carotene in our diets, but pumpkin and winter squash (butternut, hubbard) are also good sources. It makes good sense, then, to get more of these low calorie super-vegetables (preferably organic) in our daily cuisine as part of a well-balanced, healthy diet including plentiful other organic vegetables, fruit and whole foods.<br /><br />
