Red meat makes prostate cancer a killer
About the author: 

Most men will die with prostate cancer, but not from it

Most men will die with prostate cancer, but not from it. And to make sure the cancer isn't an aggressive killer, men should restrict the amount of red meat they eat, researchers have said this week.
Eating less than 500 grams of red meat a week can reduce the risk of an aggressive tumour by 38 per cent, a significant amount.
The red meat rule is the single most important lifestyle change a man with prostate cancer can make, say researchers from the University of California's Comprehensive Cancer Center.
But he can also help himself by exercising regularly, keeping his body-mass index (BMI) under control, and eating more healthy foods such as fruits, non-starchy vegetables and pulses.
These changes can determine whether the tumour is benign and slow-growing or aggressive, the researcher concluded after testing the ideas on 2,212 men, aged between 40 and 70 years, who had all recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
