A simple juice can slow the progress of prostate cancer – and it could even work as an effective preventative, new research has revealed this week.
Pomegranate juice slows the progress of the cancer in men who’ve already received treatment, and it could also be a preventative, experts have heard.
A clinical trial involving 48 men who had been treated for prostate cancer discovered that the juice reduced the level of the protein PSA – an indicator of prostate cancer – by 60 per cent. Researchers believe the juice would especially help men whose cancer treatment had been unsuccessful.
