New research released at this year's American
Society of Clinical Oncology conference has explored whether
giving men who have been treated with radiotherapy or surgery for
prostate cancer a capsule
containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli
can improve their outcomes.
Dr Kate Holmes, Head of Research at Prostate Cancer UK said:
"There is increasing evidence showing that men who have a healthy
lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, have
better prostate cancer outcomes than those who do not. At this
stage however we simply do not have enough evidence to suggest that
any particular foods or supplements have a significant impact and
these should certainly not be substituted for conventional
"We would not encourage any man with prostate cancer to start
taking Pomi-T food supplements on the basis of this research.
Anyone with any concerns about prostate cancer should discuss them
with their doctor or call Prostate Cancer UK's helpline."
