Ovarian Breast Cancer Prevention Nutrition

While prostate cancer is a treatable disease, recent studies have suggested that many cases can be prevented so long as one makes an effort to stay healthy through proper diet and exercise. Thankfully, there are now supplements available that contain all of the necessary nutrients that the prostate needs to remain in good health.

Detecting and Preventing Prostate Cancer

As is the case with most forms of cancer, the key to effective treatment of prostate cancer lies in early detection through a PSA test. The most frequent symptoms of prostate cancer are frequent urination and a weak urine flow. Because many men experience a more frequent need to urinate as they get older, these symptoms often go overlooked. Other symptoms of prostate cancer include bloody or painful urination.

When it comes to prostate cancer, the familiar adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is particularly apt. Although there is no way to guarantee that one will never be diagnosed with the disease, there are a handful of easy changes that a person can make in their lifestyle that will significantly lower their risk. Maintaining a healthy weight has been shown to lower the chance of developing prostate cancer, as has adopting a diet that is low in fat. However, the most effective method of preventing prostate cancer has been proven to be getting the proper nutrients that the prostate needs through diet and nutritional supplements.

Prostate Cancer Death Statistics Prostate cancer is currently one of the most common form of cancer in adult men, second only to skin cancer. One in every six men are diagnosed with prostate cancer following a PSA test, and roughly 27,000 men die from prostate cancer every year. Most people do not realize that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer, and there are currently over 2 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed through a PSA test. Sadly, many cases of prostate cancer could have been avoided through proper prostate nutrition and PSA testing.

Prostate Treatments and Side Effects

Although modern medicine has made significant breakthroughs in the treatment of prostate cancer, all cancer treatments come with a wide range of side effects. In the case of prostate cancer, the most common treatments are external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) and radioactive seed implants. External beam radiation therapy works by exposing the cancerous cells to highly powered X-rays. While EBRT has proven to be very effective at eradicating malignant cells, it also burns adjacent healthy tissue and comes with mild side effects including frequent urination and very loose stools. Radioactive seed implants, also known as brachytherapy is the insertion of many rice-sized radioactive pellets to the affected area that slowly release their radiation over the course of a year. Although brachytherapy has proven to be very popular with men who catch the cancer early on through a PSA test, the treatment nearly always results in side effects that make urination moderately painful and some patients experience subsequent erectile dysfunction.

Using Supplements for Proper Prostate Nutrition

The key to preventing prostate cancer is ensuring that you are receiving proper prostate nutrition through both your daily diet and the use of additional supplements that target the prostate. The best supplements for prostate nutrition include a complete prostate health complex that delivers the proper doses of vitamin D, lycopene and other nutrients. Vitamin D has proven to be invaluable in securing prostate nutrition, as it has been proven time and time again that men with prostate cancer were also deficient in Vitamin D. Lycopene is an antioxidant that is found in tomatoes that has been found to drastically lower the an individual's chances testing positive for prostate cancer after a PSA screening.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Breastfeeding or bottle feeding>?
    Which is better for you the baby and overall bottle feeding or breast feeding?

    • ANSWER:
      Breastfeeding is superior for both mom and baby. There is NO comparison, what with the antibodies baby gets, customized nutrition in each nursing session, and the prevention/risk reduction of various serious health problems (breast and ovarian cancers, diabetes, osteoporosis, asthma, allergies, Crohn's disease, respiratory infections....).

  2. QUESTION:
    I had a placenta abruption and cervical dysplasia, want a hysterectomy?
    Ok, so I am 30 years old and have 4 kids. I had a placenta abruption with my you gest and they said we were lucky that I happened to be in the hospital when it happened or I would not be here now... the doctor told me I can not have anymore kids full term. I just had an emergency C-section with my 4th child (2 different types of birth control and still got pregnant with my youngest 2... don't trust it).... I didn't want anymore kids so I had my tubes tied. I was told I have ovarian cysts (no big deal most woman do). Now as far as I have been told.... I have severe dysplasia.... maybe cancer.... he wanted to do the LEEP procedure and see if it is actually cancer. This doctor is really confusing me with things. So anyways... I am done having kids and seem to be having quite a bit of issues. I have an appointment this Tuesday to see him for the pre-op....do you think that if I ask to just have a hysterectomy he would be willing to do it? My family has a huge breast cancer back ground with almost every single female on my mothers side and 1 that I know of on my fathers side so I have to worry about that.....I really don't want to have to worry about other cancers. I could really use opinions and what others do know about this. Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      In the light of family history, prudent to know the ways and means of prevention and early diagnosis.

      BREAST CANCER*:
      Signs and symptoms of breast cancer may include:
      A breast lump or thickening that feels different from the surrounding tissue
      Bloody discharge from the nipple
      Change in the size or shape of a breast
      Changes to the skin over the breast, such as dimpling
      Inverted nipple
      Peeling, scaling or flaking of the nipple or breast skin
      Redness or pitting of the skin over your breast, like the skin of an orange
      Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare, fast-growing type of cancer that often causes no distinct lump. Instead, breast skin may become thick, red, and may look pitted -- like an orange peel. The area may also feel warm or tender and have small bumps that look like a rash.

      2. *Prevention & Cure--If U press the surrounding area on both sides of palms, soles, wrists and ankles regularly three times a day and then breast cancer shall not grow further. Side benefit is that Ur menses cycles are regulated.Acupressure & Indian Natural Remedies can cure breast cancer safely & totally in 45-90 days. T & C apply.

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the benefits of breastfeeding past 12 months?
    I'm currently breastfeeding my 14 month old. I was planning on weaning her soon, but I've heard there are many benefits to . breastfeeding past 12 months. Any one have some links or real info outlining the benefits?

    Convince me not wean, lol. It's getting tough and I need some support. Thanks!
    EDIT: She's been drinking water from a sippy cup since the day she turned 6 months. She did far better with a sippy cup than my bottle fed son. She's graduated to regular cups now.

    • ANSWER:
      no weaning! haha. how many times is she nursing a day? maybe you could cut one or two out if she's still nursing often and continue to nurse at 'important' times, like before bed or naps.

      According to kellymom:
      "Nursing toddlers benefit NUTRITIONALLY
      Nursing toddlers are SICK LESS OFTEN
      Nursing toddlers have FEWER ALLERGIES
      Nursing toddlers are SMART
      Nursing toddlers are WELL ADJUSTED SOCIALLY
      Nursing a toddler is NORMAL
      MOTHERS also benefit from nursing past infancy."

      the benefits are outlined here: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/bfextended/ebf-benefits.html

      some highlights that I find interesting:

      In the second year (12-23 months), 448 mL of breastmilk provides:
      29% of energy requirements
      43% of protein requirements
      36% of calcium requirements
      75% of vitamin A requirements
      76% of folate requirements
      94% of vitamin B12 requirements
      60% of vitamin C requirements
      -- Dewey 2001

      The American Academy of Family Physicians notes that children weaned before two years of age are at increased risk of illness (AAFP 2001).
      Nursing toddlers between the ages of 16 and 30 months have been found to have fewer illnesses and illnesses of shorter duration than their non-nursing peers (Gulick 1986).
      "Antibodies are abundant in human milk throughout lactation" (Nutrition During Lactation 1991; p. 134). In fact, some of the immune factors in breastmilk increase in concentration during the second year and also during the weaning process. (Goldman 1983, Goldman & Goldblum 1983, Institute of Medicine 1991).
      Per the World Health Organization, "a modest increase in breastfeeding rates could prevent up to 10% of all deaths of children under five: Breastfeeding plays an essential and sometimes underestimated role in the treatment and prevention of childhood illness." [emphasis added]

      Nursing toddlers are SMART
      Extensive research on the relationship between cognitive achievement (IQ scores, grades in school) and breastfeeding has shown the greatest gains for those children breastfed the longest.

      According to Elizabeth N. Baldwin, Esq. in "Extended Breastfeeding and the Law":
      "Breastfeeding is a warm and loving way to meet the needs of toddlers and young children. It not only perks them up and energizes them; it also soothes the frustrations, bumps and bruises, and daily stresses of early childhood. In addition, nursing past infancy helps little ones make a gradual transition to childhood."

      MOTHERS also benefit from nursing past infancy
      Extended nursing delays the return of fertility in some women by suppressing ovulation (References).
      Breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer (References). Studies have found a significant inverse association between duration of lactation and breast cancer risk.
      Breastfeeding reduces the risk of ovarian cancer (References).
      Breastfeeding reduces the risk of uterine cancer (References).
      Breastfeeding reduces the risk of endometrial cancer (References).
      Breastfeeding protects against osteoporosis. During lactation a mother may experience decreases of bone mineral. A nursing mom's bone mineral density may be reduced in the whole body by 1 to 2 percent while she is still nursing. This is gained back, and bone mineral density may actually increase, when the baby is weaned from the breast. This is not dependent on additional calcium supplementation in the mother's diet. (References).
      Breastfeeding reduces the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. (References).
      Breastfeeding has been shown to decrease insulin requirements in diabetic women (References).
      Breastfeeding moms tend to lose weight easier (References).

      good luck :) I hope you continue!

    • ANSWER:
      I think it is retarded to have a black history month. Most of those other things you listed are to raise awareness for things like disorders and illnesses.

      The jews were treated worse then the blacks more recently and they don't have a holocaust month. Atheists and every religion other than catholics were tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Do they have a month? White people get the most disadvantages nowadays and we don't have a month.

      If you don't believe me go look at the requirements for standardized testing, if you are white you have to score higher on your exam in order to pass. High schools are allowed to have a Minority Student Union, Ebony Club, Black Honor Society. White clubs are not allowed due to racism. White people have a harder time getting on government assistance. I have tourettes and Autism and I am unable to get on government assistance. My disability lawyer even said (in joking) "too bad you are not black, then it would be easier to get you ssi". There is a channel called BET and a magizine called Ebony. Do you see a white magazine or a white only tv channel? They even have their own award shows that only give awards to black actors, singers, etc. They are allowed to call themselves the "N" word without getting in trouble.

      Now I expect to get thumbs down. But just ponder this. If my yahoo avater was black would you have thumbed me down for saying these things? probably not.

    Of Course McCain's would be a lot more than Sen. Obama's. This is just to respond to the Repugnants claim that he has not done anything.

    McCain had almost 30 years of chances to "CHANGE" the system, and now all of the sudden he's the one who deliver it. C'mon let's not fool ourselves!
