Prostate cancer (PCa) disproportionately affects African American men (AAM) compared to European American men (EAM). For those AAM with the most common, indolent PCa, a whole food plant-based diet (WFPBD) may offer an active treatment with fewer side effects and numerous ancillary benefits compared to current standard of care. My research focuses on developing evidence to test whether a WFPBD can be a viable and effective treatment option for AAM with localized PCa.
