Tips on How to Prevent Prostate Cancer
One of the most common cancers affecting millions of men today is prostate cancer. According to the CDC, in 2012 over 177,000 men were diagnosed and over 27,000 died.
So how do we prevent that? Well, there are a few ways. One of them is to avoid – or strictly limit – dairy in male diets.
In a 10-year study of nearly 21,000 male doctors, those who consumed at least 2.5 servings of dairy food per day were 30 percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than doctors who consumed less than half a serving.
According to Cancer.org, diets high in calcium have a greater risk of developing prostate cancer. This means that consuming dairy, which is high in calcium, increases the risk. And it’s been studied and discovered that rates of prostate cancer are low in countries where diary is not consumed as much as it is in the U.S.. A study at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo, NY, found an increased risk of prostate cancer with the daily consumption of three or more glasses of whole milk, compared to never drinking milk.
Are there other tips for decreasing ones risk for prostate cancer? I’m glad you asked! Here are some natural tips for prostate cancer prevention:
- Regular sun exposure for the vitamin D
- Increase omega-3 oils
- Consume foods and drinks like flaxseed, tomatoes, green and black tea
- Exercise regularly
