Protect Your Prostate

According to The Journal of the National Cancer Institute, a diet that includes a daily dose of garlic, shallots, scallions, chives, leeks, and/or onions may help cut a man's risk of prostate cancer in half. Scallions (a bulbless onion) leads the pack as being the most protective.

So the next time you prepare a vegetable dish, sprinkle some garlic powder or sauté some onions to add flavor and prostate-protecting power to your dining experience. Your friends may have to stand at arm’s length, but they’ll have you around to enjoy for many more years to come.
