  • Think beyond tomatoes. Tomatoes are often thought of as the richest food source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant. However, recent studies have shown that watermelon contains even more lycopene than tomatoes - about 40% more!
  • Keep watermelon in the fridge once cut. Experts say that the amount of lycopene won't change much over several days when the watermelon is kept cold, but the lycopene levels will drop if the watermelon is kept at room temperature.
  • Enjoy 2 servings of soy foods per day. In countries where people regularly eat soy foods, there is a lower risk of prostate cancer. Trials have hinted that eating soy protein or whole soy foods may lower levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a protein produced by the prostate, and may benefit prostate cancer survivors. 
  • What's a serving of soy food? 125 mL (½ cup) of edamame (cooked soybeans), 60 mL (1/4 cup) of soy nuts, 175 mL (¾ cup) of tofu or 250 mL (1 cup) of soymilk.
