If you are a black man in America, you are two and a half times more likely to die from prostate cancer, compared to white men. You therefore need to have nine servings of fruits and vegetables every day to keep the prostate happy. Don’t be overwhelmed by recommendations which seem difficult. Just aim to eat twice as many servings as you are eating now, and keep increasing your intake. Get a blood test - prostate specific antigen - which can tell you if you are at high risk. The good news is that some fruits and vegetables are more powerful at keeping the prostate healthy than others. Pink guavas, pink grapefruit, cooked tomatoes and watermelon protect the prostate gland from inflammation because they contain a red pigment called lycopene.
