In a report on their findings that is published in The Journal of Urology, the researchers write that guidelines for preventing prostate cancershould aim to "consider whole dietary patterns instead of individual foods."
Lead investigator Dr. Beatriz Pérez-Gómez, from the Instituto de Salud Carlos III at the University of Alcalá near Madrid, Spain, explains that key elements "such as fish, legumes, and olive oil" should likely be included when suggesting a diet to prevent aggressive prostate cancer.
This is because their results "suggest that a high intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains might not be enough."
Prostate cancer occurs because of the uncontrolled growth of cells in the prostate, which is a gland in the male reproductive organs that produces a fluid that forms part of semen. It sits just below the bladder and surrounds the urethra, the tube that urine passes through on its way out of the body.
