I have recently been diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer and have altered my diet in accordence with this.
I now eat more vegetables than I used to but due to a dislike of fruit, I have now started drinking fruit juices either blended by myself or store purchased but all 100% pure juice.
My question concerns my daily intake of juice. I was under the impression that due to fruit containing natural sugars I would be ok to have a reasonable amount of juice per day but after glancing through the Cancer Research website it states I should only consume 150ml of juice per day because of it sugar content. I have reduced my sugar intake in my diet, and only use sweeteners, and rarely consume products with added sugar. I have been drinking three small glasses (250ml) of juices per day pomegranate(POM), self blended blueberry and a banana/strawberry smoothie purchased from the shop so I am concerned that this sugar intake maybe worsening my condition.
I would be most grateful if you confirm what a safe limit of fruit juice intake is? I realise that as with vegetables, fruit contains antioxidents that are an essential part of any cancer patients diet.
I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
