Brassica vegetables and prostate cancer risk: a review of the epidemiological evidence.

​Frequent consumption of brassica vegetables may protect men from developing prostate cancer.

Brassica vegetables, also known as cruciferous vegetables, are a family of vegetables that include broccoli, cabbage, mustards, collard greens, and bok choy. This study examined the effect of increased dietary intake of brassica vegetables on prostate cancer risk. A team of cancer experts from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, reviewed information from 12 published studies that analyzed the relationship between the consumption of brassica vegetables and prostate cancer risk.

The team of scientists observed an inverse association between high dietary ingestion of brassica vegetables and prostate cancer risk. The findings of this study lend further support to the evidence that brassica vegetables may be beneficial in the prevention of prostate cancer development.
