The Men's Eating and Living (MEAL) Study is a clinical trial that aims to explore and understand the correlation between the dietary practices of men and prostate cancer.
Research has shown that a diet high in plant products may help decrease the risk of prostate cancer, whereas a diet high in animal products is associated with an increased risk. These diets may also be similarly associated with the overall course of prostate cancer.
Strong evidence is needed to reinforce our suspicions. This clinical trial was created to help us evaluate whether diet actually affects the course of early prostate cancer.
James Marshall, PhD, discusses the MEAL Study's eligibility requirements and explains how to get involved.
