Prostate Cancer

Prostate CancerStatistics say that every year 3,000 Australian me die of the disease out of 18,700 that are diagnosed. This makes prostate cancer the second largest cause of male cancer deaths after lung cancer. One in eleven men will develop cancer during his lifetime. One of the most worrying aspects is that many prostate cancers develop without men experiencing ANY SYMPTOMS.

Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they may include:

The exact causes of prostate cancer are unknown. However, the chance of getting prostate cancer increases:

Prostate cancer occurs when some of the cells of the prostate reproduce far more rapidly than in a normal prostate, causing a swelling or tumour. prostate cancer cells eventually break out of the prostate and invade distant parts of the body, producing secondary tumours, Once the cancer escapes from the prostate, treatment is possible but “cure” becomes impossible.

In the past Prostate cancer was encountered in men over 70 and many of those men died of other causes before their prostate cancer could kill them, that is certainly is not true today. It is usually one of the slower growing cancers

Three important factors changed this situation considerably:

Prostate cancer in younger men often tends to be more aggressive and hence more life-threatening within a shorter time.

Soy Consumption Decreases Risk of Prostate Cancer

A recent review of all the studies that have looked at soy intake and prostate cancer was just reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (April 2009). The researchers reviewed 15 epidemiologic studies that had previously looked at soy intake and prostate cancer. They concluded that the intake of soy foods is associated with a reduction in prostate cancer. Here is another study that shows a positive health benefit of having soy in your diet. I always recommend the highest quality soy and to be sure you balance the intake of soy with intake of other sources of protein. In other words, you don’t just want to have soy as your only source of protein in your diet.

As discussed in previous posts balance is the key. If you have enough antioxidants to balance the amount of free radicals produced, the body is protected from oxidative stress, and by preventing oxidative stress you can avoid developing cancer. – Dr Ray Strand

Antioxidants and their supporting nutrients also optimize your body’s natural repair system and natural immune system. So even if you have started down that road to developing a cancer, your body has the best opportunity to either repair or destroy that mutated cell.
