In brief: Unfortunately...

There does not appear to be a silver bullet to prevent prostate cancer.
Recent studies have ruled out vitamin e, selenium, & 5-ars as convincing chemoprevention agents. We do know that a diet high in animal fat, low in vegetables and soy increases your risk, as does obesity, diabetes, & smoking. It is suggested physical activity lowers your risk, as does drinking coffee. Seek a healthy lifestyle.
