Researchers at the UT Health Science Center injected immune-deficient mice with human prostate cancer cells.  Within three to four weeks, tumors typically started to grow in a large number of these mice.  The study asked whether a walnut-enriched diet versus a non-walnut diet would be associated with reduced cancer formation.

18 percent of the mice eating the walnut-enriched diet developed prostate tumors, compared with 44 percent on the non-walnut control diet.  Also of note, the final average tumor size in the walnut-fed animals was roughly one-fourth the average size of the prostate tumors that developed in the mice eating the control diet.
