Diet and Prostate Cancer
Sheila Dillon discusses the latest research linking diet and prostate cancer.
A man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK, but it is a slow growing cancer. This programme explores the findings that show a link between diet and this form of cancer.
Food campaigner Geoff Tansey, diagnosed with prostate cancer a year ago, has kept an audio diary relating his experience of the disease, the removal of his prostate, and his quest to discover the effects of diet.
Nutritional scientist Professor Margaret Rayman joins Sheila Dillon to discuss her findings, which show that the health of the prostate can be helped by eating a diet rich in certain foods and avoiding the harmful effects of others
Professor Rayman is joined in the studio by Professor Colin Cooper, of the Department of Molecular Biology at the Institute of Cancer Research.
