4 Things You Consume That Can Cause Prostate Cancer

The prostate gland is located just beneath the bladder in males and surrounds the upper part of the tube that drains urine from the bladder. The major role performed by the prostate is the production of fluid that nourishes and helps in the movement of sperm.

Cancer is a medical condition that happens when cells in the body begin to develop uncontrollably. Cells in closely any part of the body can become cancer cells, and can then move to various parts of the body.

Prostate cancer is a kind of cancer that impacts the prostate gland. It is a common kind of cancer. Many prostate cancers grow slowly and occur only around the prostate gland, where they may not lead to serious damage. However, while some kinds of prostate cancer develop slowly and may need little or even no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread greatly to other body parts.

Some of the common signs and symptoms of prostate cancer are.

• Urinating frequently.

• Weak flow of urine or the need to strain to empty the bladder.

• Persistent urge to pass out urine at night.

• Blood in the urine.

• Erectile dysfunction.

• Pain or having burning sensation while passing out urine, which is much less common.

• Discomfort or pain when sitting, which is a result of an enlarged prostate.

1. Alcohol

It is not yet known whether too much alcohol intake can directly trigger prostate cancer, but it may allow your risk of the disease to aggravate. Abusing alcohol may also make prostate cancer symptoms to degenerate and increase other severe health risks, which may need treatment.

2. Dairy products

Consuming a high amount of dairy products may make your risk of developing prostate cancer rise. According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, intake of whole milk may trigger the risk of progression to fatal prostate cancer.

3. Red meat

Red meat, processed meats, and foods that contain high fat tend to be unhealthy for those who have prostate cancer. Plant-based foods, like soy, fruits, and vegetables, could have the opposite impact. Consuming these kinds of foods may assist in slowing down the development of prostate cancer in men who have it.

4. Saturated fats

Saturated fats have been associated with heart disease, but their link with prostate cancer is still tentative. Some studies have shown an association between saturated fat consumption and risk for advanced prostate cancer, but not all research has confirmed these findings.
