(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Seonggan Han = Research has shown that avoiding dairy products and meat and eating a vegetarian diet is helpful in reducing the side effects of prostate cancer treatment, such as erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

A research team led by Dr. Stacey Lev, a urologist at New York University School of Medicine, analyzed data from a study (HPFS) conducted between 1986 and 2016 on 3,505 patients with prostate cancer whose cancer cells had not metastasized (average age at diagnosis: 65 years). As a result, this fact was revealed, HealthDay News reported on the 21st.

Of these, 48% underwent prostatectomy and 35% received radiation therapy. Both of these can lead to complications such as erectile dysfunction, urethral stricture, and urinary incontinence.

They also received a survey about their eating habits once every four years.

The research team analyzed the relationship between eating habits and side effects of prostate cancer treatment.

Overall, it was found that patients who ate more vegetarian diets had better sexual function, urinary function, and quality of life.

The group with the highest percentage of vegetarians had 8-11% higher sexual function evaluation scores and up to 14% higher urinary health evaluation scores than the group with the lowest vegetarianism.

In addition, the score for hormone-related symptoms such as lethargy, depression, and facial flushing was also 13% better.

In particular, the research team found that consumption of red meat, such as beef, was the worst in managing prostate cancer.

The research team also pointed out that studies have shown that men who eat a vegetarian diet centered on vegetables, fruits, grains, and nuts have a lower risk of prostate cancer.

This research paper was published in the latest issue of Cancer, the American Cancer Society journal.
