Prostate cancer is the diagnosis that males dread the most, and with good reason. It is the second largest cause of death from cancer and the most frequent malignancy in men other than skin cancer. The good news is that prostate cancer is highly treatable if detected at an early stage. Prostate cancer can be detected early with a PSA test, but you may be asking if there is anything you can do to protect yourself from ever developing the disease. While some risk factors for prostate cancer are beyond your control, there are steps you may do to lower your risk. You can reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer by adhering to the healthy lifestyle recommendations below, which were culled from the information provided by MayoClinic.org.
One of the best strategies to stay healthy and lower your risk of developing prostate cancer is to consume a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.
Second, if you want to keep your vitamin and mineral levels up without taking supplements, you should consume more whole foods that are high in these nutrients.
Third, make exercise a regular part of your life because it boosts your mood and overall health.
Fourth, limiting your calorie intake by opting for a balanced diet and increasing your physical activity can aid in preventing prostate cancer.
