A new study published in the Journal of Urology, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health, has found that the blood of those following a vegan diet is almost eight times more effective at combating prostate cancer cells than the blood of those following a typical American diet that includes the regular consumption of meat, dairy and eggs.
For the study, researchers at the University of California-San Fransisco took the blood of those following a vegan diet (for at least a year), and those following a diet with meat, dairy and eggs, and pitted it against cancer cells. It was found that the vegan blood was drastically more effective at suppressing cancer cells (almost eight times more effective, in fact).
The study concludes by saying that; “Intensive lifestyle changes [A.K.A. switching to a vegan diet] may affect the progression of early, low grade prostate cancer in men. Further studies and longer term followup are warranted.”
