Dietary Carotenoid Intakes and Prostate Cancer Risk: A Case-Control Study from Vietnam.

Eating more carotenoid-containing foods, such as tomatoes and carrots, may help to protect men against prostate cancer.

​This study evaluated the relationship between regular ingestion of carotenoid-rich foods and the tendency to develop prostate cancer among Vietnamese men. The frequency of consumption of dietary carotenoids and incidence of prostate cancer among a study population comprising of 652 Vietnamese men were assessed using dietary questionnaires, face-to-face interviews, and hospital records.

Researchers observed that the probability of acquiring prostate cancer was low in men on diets high in tomatoes, carrots, and other lycopene-containing foods. Data from this study show that habitual intake of carrots, tomatoes, and other foods packed with lycopene may help curb the rising incidence of prostate cancer in Vietnam.
