Prostate cancer is one of the most common male cancers in Western countries, yet the incidence Of this fatal disease remains low in Asian Populations. Environmental factors such as diet play an important role in hormone-dependent cancer etiology, and a high phytoestrogen intake may be one factor contributing to the low prostate cancer mortality in Eastern Populations. In India, cancer of the lung followed by the oro and oropharyngeal malignancies is the predominant cause of oncological mortality.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common male cancers in Western countries, yet the incidence Of this fatal disease remains low in Asian Populations. Environmental factors such as diet play an important role in hormone-dependent cancer etiology, and a high phytoestrogen intake may be one factor contributing to the low prostate cancer mortality in Eastern Populations. In India, cancer of the lung followed by the oro and oropharyngeal malignancies is the predominant cause of oncological mortality.
