Foods Reducing the Risk of Prostate Cancer. Tomatoes.

Introduction.

Lycopene, belonging to the carotenoids, is abundantly found in tomatoes and tomato-based products, pink grapefruit, and watermelon. Asparagus and parsley despite not having red or orange color, also are good sources of lycopene.  

Lycopene is a potent antioxidant-an important deactivator of reactive oxygen species. The human body cannot synthesize lycopene and therefore, it must be consumed with daily food. The absorbed lycopene is mostly stored in the testes, liver, adrenals, and prostate, with concentrations in the testes as high as 10 times that of other tissues. This may point to an exclusive biological role of lycopene in certain tissues.

How Does Your Sexual Activity Affect the Risk of Prostate Cancer?

Whole foods vs supplements in the prevention of chronic diseases

Introduction.

It has long been noted that the regular consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is correlated with a low incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, etc. Scientists began to attribute these health benefits of plant foods to various biologically active substances isolated from different parts of plants. However, the assumption that isolated individual antioxidants or phytochemicals can replace the intake of plant foods has proven to be erroneous, if not harmful. The results of clinical trials are not consistent as to the beneficial effects of the dietary supplements and cannot explain the observed health advantages of diets rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Dietary supplements in clean form may not work in the same way as the ingredients of the whole food and, in addition to having fewer useful effects, may also be potentially dangerous.

Carrots – a food with proven anti-cancer power

Introduction. 

Carrot is a gold mine in our kitchen rich in health-beneficial phytochemicals such as carotenoids, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and polyacetylenes. Throughout the history of carrot cultivation, people have intuitively used its beneficial qualities, widely including it in their daily diet. Nowadays, scientific evidence backing anticancer, cholesterol and cardiovascular disease lowering, anti-diabetic, anti-hypertensive, hepatoprotective, renoprotective, and wound healing benefits of carrot has been accumulating.
A person is often dismissive of what he is used to seeing every day in abundance. Therefore, many may not even suspect that they have at hand a product that can prevent or even cure many types of chronic diseases. This post will focus on the scientifically proven health benefits of carrots and especially their outstanding anti-cancer properties.

A Pesco-Mediterranean diet with intermittent fasting: an ideal diet for health and longevity

Introduction.

Diet is one of the pillars determining a person’s health and heart health, in particular. For the last three years, 25 leading American experts have ranked the Pesco-Mediterranean diet as the #1 among 35 other diets for overall health in terms of nutrition, safety, easiness to follow, effectiveness for weight loss, protecting against cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. American Dietary Guidelines and American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association endorsed the traditional Mediterranean diet as the best diet for human health and longevity.

Obesity

How does obesity affect prostate health?

Introduction.

Overweight and obesity are risk factors for many health problems such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint conditions, gallstones, and certain types of cancer among other issues.
Hereafter, we’ll discuss how obesity affects the health of the prostate, namely benign prostate enlargement and prostate cancer (PC). The aim is to educate and attract the attention of men to the adverse consequences that may have obesity on the male reproductive system in general and prostate health in particular.

Currently, prostate cancer is on the rise and so is obesity.
Only for the last five years, in the United States, registered PC cases have increased by 27% from 180,890 in 2016 to 248,530 in 2021.
The deaths from PC raised by 24% from 26,120 deaths in 2016 to 34,130 deaths in 2021.

Five years ago, an official forecast for PC was: 1 man in 9 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Now, it is 1 man in 8 already.

Don’t allow to be a part of these horrible statistics.

Prostate cancer: the role of estrogen

Introduction.

Despite the general belief that higher serum testosterone increases the risk of developing new and rapid growth of latent prostate cancer (PC), recently some scientists attribute testosterone only a secondary role. And the emphasis is being shifted onto its direct derivative-estradiol.

In a man’s body, enzyme aromatase converts about 0.3-0.4 % of testosterone (T) into estradiol (E2). Probably, the labeling of these compounds as the male’s and the female’s hormones allowed E2 to stay in the shade while the high T content and its well-known anabolic properties attracted much more attention regarding malignant cell growth. Moreover, for the last eight decades, there has been accumulating evidence directly pointing to T in fuelling prostate cancer.

This belief has resulted in a fear of T therapy for both cancer patients and all kinds of men suffering from low T. Evidence-based education of the general public about the true relationship between T, E2, and PC may help to change public consciousness and facilitate future progress in this demanding area. Let’s try to analyze the available data and understand how these two hormones affect the development of prostate cancer.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia: comparison of different ways of treatment

Introduction

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate enlargement develops in men over the age of 40 and may cause lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). In Europe, 30% (26 million men) and in the USA, 8 million men over 50 years of age are affected by LUTS. Besides LUTS, BPH can cause serious health issues too: acute urinary retention, bladder stones, urinary tract infection, hematuria, renal insufficiency, and upper urinary tract atrophy.

Any website of the medical clinique is trying to emphasize the benefits of the techniques available at this clinique, often downplaying the negative aspects of the procedure. Therefore, distributing the advantages and side effects of different ways of BPH treatments using clinical study results may play an important role in decision-making between patients and their healthcare providers.

Dubious testosterone boosters

Introduction.

If you feel some symptoms of low testosterone or want to fortify your workout results and are thinking about purchasing a testosterone-booster supplement, hold on for a moment and read what you may don’t know and what may help you save your money and health. Most of the so-called T-boosters available on the market today have nothing to do with testosterone and do not affect your hormonal status in any way. Furthermore, some of them even may have hidden adverse effects which will be felt over time.
Start from the eye-opening research results about T-boosters: can we trust the sellers’ claims and product reviews? and how to analyze the ingredients of the supplement you have chosen, for T-boosting capacity. You will know which ingredients are real, evidence-backed T-boosters and which are not.
