MEAL Study

Many men with early-stage, non-aggressive prostate cancer choose to take a “wait and watch” approach to the disease, undergoing active surveillance — regular monitoring — instead of entering treatment right away.

Several years ago, my colleagues and I wondered about the impact of dietary practice and its role in prostate cancer. We wanted to further examine the potential link between nutritional intake and this disease. With that in mind, the Men’s Eating and Living (MEAL) Study was created.
