Aggressive prostate cancer cases are more common among overweight or obese men.
Millions of men are turning into couch potatoes with a flabby spare tire, limp erections and are always hunting for a bathroom.
Overweight or obese men have a higher chance of developing potentially life-threatening aggressive prostate cancer according to a new British review of recent research.
Evidence of the link between gaining too much weight and advanced
aggressive prostate cancer is clear. Of those cases of advanced aggressive prostate cancers, which are likely to kill, 10% are preventable if men maintain a healthy weight.
Both obesity and being overweight are associated with the development of a variety of cancers.
The prostate cancer review with Imperial College in London evaluated the data from 104 studies collected in eight countries involving over 9.8 million men and more than 191,000 prostate cancer cases.
Many prostate cancers grow so slowly they cause no harm in a man’s lifetime. Nevertheless, others are very aggressive and deadly. Screening in the form of a PSA blood test can predict prostate cancer but can’t discern which need treatment and those that don’t. Men have a difficult choice because standard treatment has severe side effects including impotence. The FDA even warns consumers that the most commonly prescribed drug for prostate treatment increases your risk of developing prostate cancer. Prostate911 contains many natural ingredients, which will reduce your symptoms with no side effects.
The prevalence of aggressive prostate cancer cases in overweight or obese men may be higher because of differences in prostate cancer detection among these men.
Prostate cancer can affect men of all shapes and sizes, so it is important that all men, and especially those who are:
- tall in height
- over 50
- with a family history of the disease
- suffering from previous kidney, bladder, lung or thyroid cancer
The link to height can be explained by thinking of it as a marker of the growth process that happens early in life. Men can’t change their height, but they can reduce their risk of aggressive prostate cancer by maintaining a healthy weight.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle defends against a host of diseases, including prostate cancer.
This study is among the first to differentiate between high grade and advanced stage tumors.
If every man in America maintained a healthy weight, about one in ten cases could be prevented each year.
