High Saturated Fat Diets Have Negative Effects Prostatectomy
A new study showed that men who consumed a high saturated fat (HSF)
diet were significantly more likely to have a biochemical failure
following prostate cancer removal and a shorter biochemical-failure-free
survival than men on a low saturated fat (LSF) diet. The study included
309 white patients at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer
Center treated with prostatectomy. Five years after surgery, 80 percent
of men who consumed an LSF diet were disease free, compared to 65
percent of men who consumed a HSF diet.
