(Seattle-AP) -- Another reason why men should eat their vegetables.

Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle have found that eating three servings of vegetables a day
can cut a man's risk of prostate cancer nearly in half.

Researcher Alan Kristal says broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are the best. Scientists believe they contain
chemicals that help the body detoxify cancer-promoting compounds.

The study of 12-hundred Seattle-area men is published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
