Prostate Cancer

It is estimated that about 16% or 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. The 2nd most common cancer among men (behind skin cancer), the causes of Prostate Cancer are not fully understood.

Men most at risk for Prostate Cancer include:

Prostate Cancer often displays no symptoms in the early stages. More advanced symptoms may include:

  • Need to urinate frequently during the nighttime
  • Little warning before needing to urinate

Prostate Cancer prevention: One of the best things a man can do to protect against Prostate Cancer is to eat a healthy diet that is low in high-fat foods or processed meats and high in fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods.

I thought this was very interesting: http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-eating-cancer-prevention-20140610-story.html

It sounds like men that eat a lot of dairy (or, at least a lot of calcium) may be at increased risk of developing prostate cancer.
