A study just published in the British Journal of Nutrition reported that higher intakes of antioxidants may reduce oxidative stress in men with prostate cancer. This comes on the heels of a growing body of evidence that oxidative stress plays a role in the development and progression of prostate cancer.
The researchers from several US institutions concluded that the study indicates more research is needed to determine the underlying mechanisms as to how dietary antioxidants may affect prostate disease severity, progression and recurrence.
Given that chia is a good source of natural antioxidants, this would indicate that eating chia could have a positive effect in terms of controlling/reducing prostate cancer.
