Beta-Carotene Can Cut Risk of Prostate Cancer

Vital Information:

  • Men with low levels of beta-carotene may be able to reduce their risk of prostate cancer by taking supplements every other day.
  • Beta-carotene is an antioxidant found in many fruits and vegetables, including carrots, squash, yams, peaches, apricots, spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, and broccoli.
  • Trials supporting beta-carotene to prevent other types of cancer have been inconsistent, and more research is needed.
