Brief Answer:
Prostat cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking

Although nutrition plays a role in the development of prostate cancer, no specific diet can prevent or eradicate this disease. Prostate cancer, like other cancers, is an extremely complex process. No single factor (eg, diet) can explain the various facets of this disease. Nevertheless, the use of diet and dietary supplements for reducing the risk of developing prostate cancer or for treating prostate cancer continues to engage the interest of patients and researchers.

It’s the combination of all these elements that seems to bring health benefits, but one of the key aspects is the inclusion of healthy fats
