We know now or should know by now that Lycopene in tomato sauce has been found to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Now there is a new sidekick here to help. Yeaup…Oregano.
ScienceDaily (Apr. 24, 2012) — Oregano, the common pizza and pasta seasoning herb, has long been known to possess a variety of beneficial health effects, but a new study by researchers at Long Island University (LIU) indicates that an ingredient of this spice could potentially be used to treat prostate cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in American men.
I must add that dairy from milk, cheese, yogurt and butter all increase the risk of prostate cancer.
So maybe next time you order some pizza you will switch to lots of veggies, tomato sauce, oregano and garlic over fatty heart clogging cheese. If your concerned about calcium stick to green leafy foods or foods that grow in n the ground because that is where the cow gets its calcium.
