Low Carb and Prostate Cancer

A study done on mice by the University of Alabama found that mice on low carb diets only had 1/3 chance of prostate cancer vs those on a high carb diet.

The study ran for 23 weeks on mice that were genetically set to get prostate cancer. When the study was over, 32% of the mice on the high carb diet had died from prostate cancer. However, only 10% of the mice on the low carb diet had passed on.

Scientists are now trying to do investigations to match these results up with humans. Low carb diets have been found to be healthy in many other ways, and it appears that helping to fight prostate cancer will be one of its many benefits.
