Tomatoes and Prostate Cancer
 In opposition to the popular opinion, lycopene, an antirust one found in tomatos, aid not to prevent the cancer with the prostate, a new study has found.

The new results of the investigators in center of investigation of cancer of E.E.U.U. Fred Hutchinson (FHCRC) contradict a theory for a long time that touts lycopene like magical bullet for the cancer of the prostate, according to the application of May the epidemiolog'a, the Biomarkers and the prevention of the cancer of the newspaper. In fact, a product upper of the betacaroteno, another antirust one found in many vehicles and of general use like dietetic supplement, appear to increase the risk of the aggressive cancer of the prostate.

The investigators listed to 28,000 men in the prostate, the lung, the Colorectal, and the ovarian investigation of the test cancer and gathered data therefore. All the men did not have any previous history of the cancer of the prostate. At the outset they defended them for the disease of the test in 1993, and later they were followed with the regular investigation until the first occurrence of the cancer of the prostate or the death for the end of the test in 2001. During the course of the test, 1,320 boxes of the cancer of the prostate were diagnosed.

The equipment did not find any significant difference in levels of the blood of lycopene between the men who had cancer of the prostate and those that did not do it. In fact, they upper found an association between the increasing risk of the aggressive cancer of the prostate and a product of the betacaroteno. The betacaroteno also has leagued together to an increasing risk of the lung cancer and to the cardiac disease between smokers, according to the results. The new study 'prevents our enthusiasm for the beneficial effect of lycopene,' said to author Ulrike Peters, professor of the lead of the assistant of investigation in the FHCRC. The 'tomatos, and the tomato found in tomato sauce and pizza, do not reduce the risk of the cancer of the prostate,' she added. 'People must be very cautious on taking high doses from the suplemental betacaroteno,' she said.

To live a form on active life, heals is the best strategy to prevent the cancer, the study suggests. To put its faith in a particular food is not effective in the prevention of the cancer, the study adds. 'Our guidelines suggest it people mainly eats a plant-based diet with a variety of vehicles and of fruits,' Marji McCullough, greater epidemi'logo in the American society of the cancer said. 'We did not recommend taking from multivitamins or other supplements, specially supplements of the betacaroteno,' she said.
