What steps can a man take to reduce his risk for prostate cancer?

Though there isn’t a way to directly prevent prostate cancer, there are a variety of risk factors that can be controlled to help reduce the risk, according to the American Cancer SocietyOff Site Icon (ACS).

The ACS recommends:

  • be physically active
  • eat a well-balanced diet, including at least 2.5 cups of fruits and vegetables a day
  • maintain a healthy weight

Premier Health Specialists’ physicians say that following a heart-healthy diet promotes good prostate health.
