    • Soy products, like tofu and soy beans.
    • Tomatoes and foods that contain tomato sauce.
    • Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
    • Fish, like salmon, albacore tuna, and sardines.
    • Walnuts and flaxseed, and their oils.

    Being physically active and staying at a healthy body weight also can help reduce the risk of prostate cancer.4
