Healthy lifestyle: Nothing specific. But in general what you can do is to avoid cigarette/tobacco, avoid alcohol. Have an active and healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly, have a well balanced diet, increase your fibre, vegetable and fruits intake and decrease intake of processed red meat, carbohydrates. Pomegranate may be beneficial specifically in prostate cancer prevention.
