AICR research shows that eating plenty of fruit is one of the ways to lower risk of oral cancers, such as mouth, pharynx and larynx. Now a study highlighted at our conference this week hones in on how one type of fruit – black raspberries – may reduce oral cancers, at least in rodents.

The study, not yet published, found that black raspberries slowed the development of oral cancers in rats and identified cancer-related genes that were affected.

    Lycopene lowering prostate cancer risk – ways to eat your lycopene

    By Posted on Leave a comment on Lycopene lowering prostate cancer risk – ways to eat your lycopene

    A new study presented today at AICR’s 25th Research Conference suggests that lycopene-containing foods may lower prostate cancer risk. That would be good news for cancer risk, but also because these foods provide an abundance of nutrients, like vitamins C, A and other phytochemicals.

    Americans get lycopene mostly from tomatoes and tomato products like sauce, juice and pizza. But try other delicious choices like red and pink grapefruit, red carrots, papaya, guava and watermelon.

    Although evidence isn’t strong enough overall to say foods with lycopene lower prostate cancer risk, AICR is working to tease apart how food and other lifestyle factors affect different types of this cancer. In the meantime, eating more of these foods contributes to an overall cancer-protective diet.
