Reduce Risk for Prostate Cancer

Fox news reports that Nearly half of men who undergo surgery to treat prostate cancer find themselves with greater incontinence problems and less sexual function than they had anticipated, according to a new poll.

Before the surgery, some men in the study had expected to get better urinary and sexual function a year after the procedure—a misbelief that the researchers say is out of step with the reality of prostate cancer surgery.

"Any intervention that you do to a patient, whether it be surgical or radiation, is never going to make the person (function) better than they are at the present time," Krupski said.
According to the American Cancer Society, one out of every six men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point.

Prostate cancer is nothing to take lightly. As anything else if it is at all possible to avoid getting any kind of cancer at all it's best to do it.

Here's some things that may help to lower risks for prostate cancer.

 Consume tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, green tea, and vitamins including vitamin E and selenium seemed to lead to a decreased risk of prostate cancer.

Avoid highly processed or charcoaled meats.

Get vitamin D from moderate sun exposure if possible.


Below are a large list of recommendations from Doctor Mercola's site for how to avoid and treat both types of cancer:

Optimize your vitamin D levels with appropriate sun exposure, and make sure to monitor your vitamin D levels to ensure you're within the optimal (as opposed to “normal” range).

Control your insulin levels.

Get appropriate exercise. One of the primary reasons exercise works is that it drives your insulin levels down. Controlling insulin levels is one of the most powerful ways to reduce your cancer risks.

Eat a custom designed diet for your unique biochemistry, and make certain you limit your intake of processed foods. Additionally, everyone would benefit greatly from eliminating:

High glycemic carbohydrates, such as sugar, pasta, potatoes, bread and most grains

All pasteurized dairy

Conventional grain and chemical fed animals

Most fish, due to high levels of mercury and PCB contamination

Get appropriate amounts of animal-based omega-3 fats such as krill oil or fish oil, and reduce your intake of poor quality, processed omega-6 oils. The imbalance between these two fats is a major cause of inflammation and disease.

IP6 (phytic acid) is a powerful tool to lower high iron levels (serum ferritin levels). Excess iron can be a major cause of many cancers.

Selenium - 400 mcg per day.

Consume freshly ground flaxseeds - two ounces every other day.

Vitamin E - 400 units per day. (Please note: Only natural vitamin E should be used, not synthetic. Additionally, mixed tocopherol is more preferable than alpha-tocopherol, as the gamma tocopherols are particularly useful antioxidants.)

Consume fresh vegetables or vegetable juice daily, including one small tomato, or some raspberries or watermelon, which are all good sources of lycopene.

Vegetables in the cabbage family, such as broccoli and broccoli sprouts will also help control excess estrogens, the real enemy of the prostate, in addition to all the other benefits mentioned above.

Eliminate sugar as much as possible as it's been shown again and again that sugar feeds cancer.

Eat broccoli or cauliflower sprouts, depending on your nutritional type.

Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. It is likely that this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here, so make sure this is addressed.

Two potent tools include a method called Recall Healing, and meridian tapping techniques.

Get enough high-quality sleep.

Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins and sources of heavy metals.

Boil, poach or steam your foods, rather than frying or charbroiling them.

Fortunately, prostate cancer can be easily controlled if caught early. And following these simple methods, along with getting your PSA screening after you turn 40, can provide excellent natural prevention against this relatively slow-growing cancer.
