Walnuts Slow Prostate Cancer Growth

Guys did you know eating about 500 calories in walnuts a day could possibly save your life one day? Scientists have done studies on mice that show that eating walnuts could help slow down the growth associated with prostate cancer. It is not clear what in the walnuts may be assisting in this process, but speculation is that the omega-3 fatty acids, mineral and even some proteins may play a role. They also believe other foods such as tomatoes, pomegranates, selenium-rich foods and tea can slow down or prevent the growth of a tumor. Scientists say that it may not be a cure, but they are well on their way to finding one.

I found this article very interesting because I know someone that had prostate cancer and won the fight. I think if we had this information before we could have prevented the cancer or made it easier to fight. I hope that scientists can find a cure for cancer because it would save many lives. Currently 1 in 6 men will end up with prostate cancer. I also found this topic interesting because it could happen to me or any other guy and we should be informed about it.
