New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 4, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 18 a Herald2eituna O Wednesday October Prostate cancer slowed by lowfat diet research shows WASHINGTON AP Eating lean could become a key part of treat ing prostate cancer if clinical studies confirm laboratory findings that a low fat diet cuts the rate of tumor growth by at least half A study published today in the Jour nal of the National Cancer Institute showed that human prostate cancer tumors in mice fed lowfat food grew at a markedly slower rate than did tumors in mice fed a diet enriched with the fat levels typically consumed by American men What we found was astonishing to said Dr William R Fair a mem ber of a research team at Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York Tumors didnt disappear but the decrease in growth was really Prostate cancer generally is slow growing said Fair and if it can be slowed even more by reducing fat then it is possible that many men wouldnt need anything more than dietary Most prostate cancers develop around the age of 60 said Fair and if we are able to a tell a 60yearold that he could do something to slow growth of the cancer for 30 years thats the same as a cure for most In the mouse study Fair and his col leagues injected prostate cancer cells into special laboratory mice that can grow human cancers The mice at the time were being fed a corn oil diet that included percent fat about the same fat content as the diet of the average American male adult Once the prostate cancer tumors started growing in the mice the ani mals were divided into four groups and each group started receiving dif ferent levels of fat ranging from a high of percent to a low of percent fat per calorie After 11 weeks the mice were killed and tumor growth was measured along with blood chemistry Tumor growth was 2 times greater in mice on the highfat diet than for mice on the lowestfat diet For mice on a percent fat diet the tumor growth was about half that of the mice on the highestfat diet Fair said the mouse study is unique because it showed the growth of ejcist ing prostate tumors could be slowed by switching from a highfat to a lean diet Dietary effects also were reflected in tested levels of prostate specific anti gen or PSA in the rodents blood High levels of PSA often indicate can cer growth Mice on the leanest diet had PSA counts about 35 percent of the level of mice on the highfat diets Dr J Michael Gaziano and Dr Charles H Hennekens both of Harvard Medical School said in a Journal edi torial that the findings have con tributed important and relevant data to an emerging body of evidence on dietary fat and risk of prostate can World Nation Briefs Iraqi deserter captured by Kuwaiti soldiers i KUWAIT AP Police have
