Citrus salmon with spinach, broccoli and peas
The UK charity Prostate Cancer Foundation recommends that eating oily fish may help to prevent prostate cancer. Oily fish is a good source of omega 3 fats that have been shown to be beneficial for maintaining healthy cells. There was recently some media controversy on the potential of fish oil supplements increasing prostate cancer risk, however, most health professionals continue to recommend that oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and fresh tuna remain part of a healthy diet for men.
