Low fat, low red-meat diets prevent, treat prostate cancer

A new study published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics shows that diets low in both fat and red meat, low in dairy and calcium, but high in fruits and vegetables, can both prevent and treat prostate cancer.

The Spartan Diet matches all this criteria, and then some. The Spartan Diet is low in fat, and gets nearly all fat from "good fat" sources, including raw nuts, avocados, olive oil and other plant sources. Red meat is limited on the Spartan Diet, and domestic animal meat banned altogether. There is no dairy on the Spartan Diet at all. And the diet is loaded with very high varieties of fresh, whole, organic fruits and vegetables.

In other words, this study shows that the Spartan Diet is ideal for maximum prostate health.
