CAPE CORAL, Fla. — September is prostate cancer awareness month.
The prostate cancer foundation says 30-percent of cancers are preventable through lifestyle changes, including eating better. Each day on Fox 4, we'll profile a superfood you can incorporate into your diet. The challenge is called the "Eat It To Beat It."
Today's superfood is flaxseed.
Flaxseeds are rich in omega-three fatty acids, manganese, and Vitamin B-1.
They have phyto-estrogen that provides the strongest benefit against prostate cancer and other cancers that are hormone-linked.
You can add flaxseeds to cereal or a smoothie.
Flaxseeds can also be purchased in the form of an oil supplement.
