As part of a long-term study on preventing prostate cancer, researchers in Seattle analyzed the diets of thousands of men to see if they could identify any connection between what the men were eating and their risk of benign prostate hyperplasia. BPH is a non-cancerous inflammation of the prostate gland. Although BPH is by definition benign, it is very common condition and can be a major quality-of-life issue for men over 50. As well, having BPH increases the risk for eventually developing prostate cancer.
