The amount of active testosterone in men decreases with age. This results in a higher proportion of estrogen in their blood, leading to prostate enlargement. 1 in 3 men over 40 has prostate problems.

The inevitable risk factors for prostate enlargement (BPH) and cancer are heredity, race, and aging. The most controllable risk factor is diet. High fat diet increases risk for prostate problems, thus, making them more common in countries where meat and dairy products are dietary staples. However, there are low fat, "healthy" foods that can trigger prostate enlargement as well.


Farmed salmon are usually fed with fishmeal that is high in contaminants like PCBs, brominated flame retardants, dioxin, and DDT. They are also given antibiotics and are colored with artificial pink dye. These chemicals when absorbed by your body trigger prostate growth. They also lower vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids in the fish.

Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed oil is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a form of omega-3 fatty acid. It is vital for the development of the nervous and cardiovascular systems. However, high intake of ALA omega-3 fatty acid stimulates the growth of prostate tumors. It has also been proven to increase risks of prostate enlargement.


Potatoes are considered nonfat high-fiber food. However, non-organic potatoes are exposed to many herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides. These chemicals are absorbed into the flesh of the potato which can't be removed by washing or cooking. All of these chemicals are harmful to your prostate and overall health.


Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that promotes prostate health. However, canned tomatoes can endanger your prostate. The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A (BPA), a synthetic estrogen that increases prostate cancer risks. Tomatoes are acidic, thus, they can easily absorb BPA.


Popcorn is considered a good diet food and good source of fiber. However, microwave popcorns contain perfluorooctanoic acid in the lining of their bags. This chemical has been linked to prostate cancer and several other types of cancer.
