Artificial compounds duplicating lycopene found naturally in tomatoes has been found to slow the growth of human prostate tumors in mice by 50% over 42 days. Lycopene combined with vitamin E, slowed tumor growth by up to 73%. Further research on humans is needed to confirm the benefits of these compounds. Men should ensure their diet contains foods rich in vitamin E and lycopene e.g. tomato products, papayas, pink grapefruit, watermelon, wheat germ, whole grain, mangoes, leafy green vegetables, nuts and olive oil. 21,300 men develop prostate cancer in Britain annually.
