New research released at this year's American Society of Clinical Oncology conference has explored whether giving men who have been treated with radiotherapy or surgery for prostate cancer a capsule containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli can improve their outcomes.

Dr Kate Holmes, Head of Research at Prostate Cancer UK said: "There is increasing evidence showing that men who have a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, have better prostate cancer outcomes than those who do not. At this stage however we simply do not have enough evidence to suggest that any particular foods or supplements have a significant impact and these should certainly not be substituted for conventional treatments.

"We would not encourage any man with prostate cancer to start taking Pomi-T food supplements on the basis of this research. Anyone with any concerns about prostate cancer should discuss them with their doctor or call Prostate Cancer UK's helpline."
