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.

No not really: moderate alcohol intake while receiving RT for prostate cancer is not likely to give you problems if it is consistent with your normal routine.

Need more info: I don't know what cancer you are talking about. Alcohol and tobacco can increase the risks of lots of cancers.
