Prostate Cancer Drugs In Your Supermarket

Who knew?

Adding common foods like apples, watermelons, cranberries, tomatoes and more to your diet can help you avoid developing — prostate cancer.

Researchers discovered that several natural compounds found in foods starve cancerous tumors of the nutrition they need to thrive.

The most promising active ingredients can be found in apple peels, rosemary, turmeric, red grapes, berries and green tea.

Lycopene, the pigment that gives tomatoes and watermelons their bright red color, has been shown to decrease the risk of prostate cancer by up to 35 percent.

Going on a high-fiber diet may be able to stop tumors from growing, according to a recent study published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.
