    A multicountry ecologic study of risk and risk reduction factors for prostate cancer mortality.
    Grant WB.
    Eur Urol. 2004 Mar;45(3):271-9.
    PMID: 15036670

    CONCLUSIONS: These results are consistent with insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), being an important risk factor for prostate cancer, with alcohol and calcium being less important risk factors, and with allium family vegetables, and, to a lesser extent, vitamin D being important risk reduction factors. These results should provide guidance for additional studies on dietary and environmental links to prostate cancer.
