Consumption Of Whole Grains Not Linked To Prostate Cancer Risk

June 9, 2011: 11:06 AM EST
Researchers in Denmark could not find a link between greater consumption of whole grains and specific whole grain foods and the risk of prostate cancer. The prospective study looked at data from 26,691 middle-aged men (50 to 64 years old) who provided information about their diets and various risk factors associated with prostate cancer. Over 12 years of follow-up study, 1,081 prostate cancer cases occurred. But there was no statistical association found between prostate cancer risk and eating whole grains generally, or eating specific whole grain products such as rye bread and oatmeal, with the risk of prostate cancer.
