When it comes to speaking about issues occurring below the belt-line, 90% of men will ignore the subject or retreat into silence.

Additional conversation is generally not an option.
The end result of this self-imposed wall of silence by men has been the re-allocation of… Read More »

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 »
Diagnoses of early prostate cancer continue to decline in the United States, following the 2011 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation against routine screening for the disease.
For those of you not familiar with this screening, the analysis involves a simple blood test that identifies levels of PSA (prostate specific antigen), a protein produced by the prostate gland. While the test can determine when cancer exists, it can… 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 »
