Adding common foods like apples, watermelons, cranberries, tomatoes and more to your diet can help you avoid developing — prostate cancer.

There appears to be a strong association between smoking and prostate cancer mortality. A study published in JAMA in 2011 followed 5,366 men with prostate cancer for 20 years. The study found smokers had a statistically significant increased risk of prostate cancer mortality. Another study published in… Read More »

When it comes to speaking about issues occurring below the belt-line, 90% of men will ignore the subject or retreat into silence. Unlike women, who openly share life-saving information on their health with their physicians and friends, men tend to “macho up” and retreat into quiet isolation.

Researchers from the University of Victoria in Australia analyzed 26 previous scientific studies that linked the daily consumption of alcohol to prostate cancer.
Apparently drinking just one pint of beer every day raises the risk of contracting prostate cancer by 23 per cent, a study has found. But even as little as half a pint a week increased the likelihood of contracting the cancer
They found that men who drank… Read More »
Some research suggests that drinking pomegranate juice may slow the progression of prostate cancer.
For example, in a study of men with recurrent prostate cancer and rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, researchers found that taking pomegranate juice extract significantly slowed the rate at which PSA was rising (PSA doubling time). A longer PSA doubling time can indicate that the cancer may be progressing less rapidly.
But this study did not… Read More »
Many studies have shown the negative effect health providers’ underlying prejudices can have on the doctor-patient relationship and the decisions patients make about their care. And according to a new study, oncologists are not immune.
Some cancer physicians are letting their implicit racial biases get in the way of quality treatment for Black patients.
Researchers at the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, Michigan, studied video-recorded interactions between 18… Read More »
