Dr. David Samadi Spotlights Mediterranean Diet To Diminish Cancer Risks

Dr. David Samadi, Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital, is an advocate of healthy nutrition, which can reduce the risk of prostate cancer. A group of researchers say that unbalanced diets could be one of the risk factors in the increase in tumor aggressiveness.

Experts agree that the Mediterranean diet, thanks to the combination of the beneficial properties of different foods, could prevent the risk of cancer. Dr. Samadi says doctors have noticed that the incidence of tumors is lower in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea than in the northern countries, the United States and the UK. The Mediterranean diet seems to be related to a lower probability of contracting some types of cancer and lower cancer mortality, which becomes obvious that people should pay more attention to their diet.

A high consumption of vegetables, fresh and dried fruit, legumes, whole grains and fish, a prevalence of monounsaturated fatty acids compared to saturated fats , and a reduced consumption of processed red meat and dairy products seem to be a rising star when it comes to diminishing cancer risks.

The Properties Of Certain Foods

The protective effect of fruit and vegetables on the development and progression of the tumor may depend on the high content of flavonoids with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic and antiproliferative properties says Dr. David Samadi.

• Fish consumption is recommended due to the content of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can inhibit carcinogenesis and perform protective action against tumor progression

• Fibers can prevent the development of some forms of cancer; in particular this has been shown in the case of colorectal cancer, because their intake increases the size of the stool and consequently reduces the time it stays in the body, thus decreasing the impact of potentially carcinogenic substances in the colon

• Vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, green radicchio, spinach, papaya, mango, chicory, and red peppers contain carotenoids that protect against the action of free radicals

Besides becoming a renown, celebrated urology doctor, Dr. David Samadi has performed extensive research on holistic therapies throughout his career. He has always advocated for proper nutrition that reduces cancer and cell mutations. Dr. Samadi often speaks of this as a news correspondent for Fox News and his AM radio show.

After earning his Bachelor’s and Medical degrees at Stony Brook University, Dr. Samadi completed an oncology residency at Memorial Sloan Cancer Center in 2001. He then went on to obtain a specialization in Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery in France, at the Henri Mondor Hospital.
