Practice shows that the representatives of a strong half of humanity is much more difficult to monitor their diet than women. Slim figure Men care less about health they care less. However, perhaps the latest research evidence will convince them if you do not give up, then strongly reduce the amount of saturated fat in their diets. Meat, fat milk and sweets can cause the development of more aggressive prostate cancer.
According to the health info with reference to MK.RU, to the conclusion reached by scientists from the University of North Carolina, recently published the shocking article in the journal "of the prostate Prostate cancer and disease? (Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases). According to them, this is the power component as saturated fats, which are found mainly in animal products, seriously aggravate the course of prostate cancer.
It was found that when the diet male saturated fat, it enhances the level of cholesterol in the blood, which in turn is associated with progressive views of prostate cancer. This conclusion came to the study's author, Emma Ellott University of North Carolina.
The project for the study of prostate cancer in North Carolina, Louisiana, who investigated how linked prostate cancer and fats in the diet, involved 1854 patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Among these, 321 persons (or 17%) was diagnosed with a "very aggressive" cancer. Men are asked to respond to questions about their eating habits; what medications they take, what kind of life they are, how old they are and what they are doing. Scientists estimate the level of saturated fat in the diet of each person, and the number of mono- and polyunsaturated fats - healthy fats, which in turn reduce the level of bad cholesterol in the blood. Recently, we recall, found in vegetable oils and fish.
It was found that patients with more aggressive prostate cancer receive daily more calories and cholesterol. In addition, the proportion of calories they get from fat, very high. Among men with a more aggressive prostate cancer proportion of saturated fat in the overall intake of fats was higher and polyunsaturated - lower than that of males with less aggressive cases.
The researchers concluded that a diet with high in saturated fat by 51% increases the risk of an extremely aggressive cancer compared with diets in which the percentage of saturated fat was minimal. In addition, among patients who were not taking statins to lower cholesterol, the risk of aggressive cancer increased by 71% when a diet with high in saturated fat. For those who took statins, the risk increased by only 16 percent.
