Studies reveal that every human has cancer cells in their body and one of the most common cancer in men is prostate cancer. That is why in this article, I will be talking about tips to help prevent prostate cancer.

Statistics show that prostate cancer is the second most commonly found cancer among men. In every 9 men, 1 of them is found to be affected by prostate cancer. Please note that it is not found highly among men under the age of 40 but among those above the age of 65, who have more chances to get affected form the disease. (Source: John Hopkins Medicine)

I recommend you eat fruits and avoids candies. It is better to opt for nuts and seeds instead of cheese.
