STUDY: New scientific research shows plant-based diet promotes urological health

0

At the AUA conference, researchers presented findings on how plant-based diets were associated with a decreased risk of erectile dysfunction and lower rates of PSA, a marker of the risk of total and fatal prostate cancer.

SALLY HO: Three new scientific studies are connecting a healthy plant-based diet to better men’s health outcomes. Presented at the recent American Urological Association (AUA) virtual conference, the new studies show a link between plant-based food intake and better urological health in men, as well as a reduced risk of prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction.

The AUA has presented three new scientific studies highlighting the benefits of plant-based diets for men’s health—specifically urological health in men. At the virtual annual conference hosted by the organisation, researchers presented their findings on how plant-based diets were associated with a decreased risk of erectile dysfunction, lower rates of prostate-specific antigens (PSA), a marker of the risk of total and fatal prostate cancer.

All three studies have been published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Urology, the official medical journal of the AUA. During the conference, AUA conference moderator Stacy Loeb said the session could be “summarised succinctly” with the conclusion that men should “eat more plants for your prostate and your erections”…

In the first study presented, researchers found a link between higher intake of plant-based foods and PSA levels in men. Using data on the demographics, dietary habits and PSA levels of men enrolled in a national health and nutrition survey, the study found a significant correlation between those who consumed a healthy plant-based diet and lower PSA levels…

Another study… marked one of the first to link plant-based dietary patterns more specifically and the advantages it could have in preventing prostate cancer development… Involving more than 47,000 male participants for up to 28 years, the research found that overall higher rates of plant-based food consumption led to a significantly lower risk of fatal prostate cancer…

The third study presented at the AUA analysed the association between erectile dysfunction and over 2,500 men’s intake of plant-based foods through the overall healthful plant-based diet index. It found that those who ate a diet rich in healthy vegan foods had a decreased risk of erectile dysfunction…

The latest evidence adds to the overwhelming bed of data confirming the benefits of plant-based diets to human health, from reducing the risk of heart disease to bolstering the presence of gut microbes that are linked to lower obesity rates and diabetes. SOURCE…
