Vegetarian low-fat diet increases quality of life

A diet based on low saturated fats, high vegetable proteins and low levels of animal protein could be associated with a serious increase in prostate-specific antigens. A diet of this type could increase quality of life. The study investigated 36 men with prostate cancer .
Dr. Carmody leading the study reportedly commented: “Although no significant change was found in the rate of PSA increase between the two groups, the mean PSA doubling time for the intervention group was substantially longer at the 3-month follow-up visit than that of the controls.”
He reportedly continued: “Future clinical trials should examine the effect of a similar diet on clinical disease markers of disease progression with a larger sample of men followed for a substantially longer period.”
