Tomato-rich diet helps prevent prostate cancer

LONDON, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Men who eat over 10 portions a week of tomatoes have an 18 per cent lower risk of developing prostate cancer, a new research by British scientists suggests.

According to researchers, the study, published Wednesday in the medical journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, is the first of its kind to develop a prostate cancer "dietary index".

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide, and the rates are higher in developed countries, which some experts believe is linked to a Westernised diet and lifestyle.
