Carrots – a food with proven anti-cancer power


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 carrot has been accumulating in terms of anticancer, cholesterol and cardiovascular disease lowering, anti-diabetic, anti-hypertensive, hepatoprotective, renoprotective, and wound healing benefits.
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 carrots’ scientifically proven health benefits, particularly their outstanding anti-cancer properties.

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


Diet is one of the pillars determining a person’s health, particularly heart health. 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, protection 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 humanhealth and longevity.

How does obesity affect prostate health?

  • by


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 that one man in 9 would be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Now, it is one man in 8 already.

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

Prostate cancer: the role of estrogen

  • by


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 have attributed testosterone only a secondary role. And the emphasis is being shifted onto its direct derivative-estradiol.

The enzyme aromatase converts about 0.3-0.4 % of testosterone (T) into estradiol (E2) in a man’s body. 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, evidence has directly pointed to T in fuelling prostate cancer.

This belief has resulted in fear of T therapy for 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 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

  • by


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


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 may even have hidden adverse effects that 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 chose for T-boosting capacity. You will know which ingredients are real, evidence-backed T-boosters and which are not.

Testosterone boosters: Zinc

Zinc – a master element to optimize testosterone in men.

Zinc (Zn) is humans’ most abundant trace metal after iron. It cannot be deposited in the body, the extra Zn is excreted together with sweat and other discharges. Therefore, regular dietary intake of the mineral is required. The human body contains 2–4 grams of Zn; most of it (nearly 90%) is found in muscles and bones, with the highest concentrations in the prostate and semen. Zn is the key element in the male reproduction system determining prostate gland function and growth of reproductive organs. Zinc is a component of over 300 enzymes and 1000 transcription factors and is involved in almost all physiological functions of our body: growth, immune response, reproduction, DNA synthesis, expression of genes, and cell division. Here we will focus on how Zn stimulates testosterone production and thereby defines the reproductive health in men.
