In brief: Good question...

As far as we know, the best way to prevent prostate cancer is to eat a lower fat diet with a lot of fruits and vegetables.
The best way to prevent dying from prostate cancer is to get screened with a psa blood test and a rectal exam by your doctor. If you have a family member with prostate cancer, i would recommend starting this at age 40.
