For men with prostate cancer, consuming vegetable fats — like those found in olive oils, nuts and avocados — instead of animal fats or carbohydrates may bring a longer life, according to new research.
In the study, prostate cancer patients who substituted 10 percent of their daily calories from carbohydrates with vegetable fat were 29 percent less likely to die from prostate cancer over an eight-year period. They were also 26 percent less likely to die of other causes.
And an extra serving (1 ounce) of nuts per day was linked with an 11 percent lower risk of death from any cause, the researchers said.
