Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go: Mediterranean Diet’s Association With Localized Prostate Cancer

February 2, 2021
Matthew Fowler

CancerNetwork®’s podcast features Justin Gregg, MD, lead author of a study investigating the Mediterranean diet and how it impacts men with localized prostate cancer.

In the latest episode of “Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go,” CancerNetwork® spoke with Justin Gregg, MD, about a study published in Cancer titled, “Adherence to the Mediterranean diet and grade group progression in localized prostate cancer: an active surveillance cohort.”

Gregg, an assistant professor of urology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the lead author of the study, explained that the Mediterranean diet was associated with a lower risk of Gleason Grade group progression among men with localized prostate cancer on active surveillance. Larger follow-up studies are still necessary to verify the patient- and cancer-specific effects of adherence to the Mediterranean diet.
