Prostate cancer is on the rise – it’s become the single most common cancer among men, and the second most common cause of death. The incidence has quadrupled since the 1970s, and not just from improved screening.
In the US, a man’s lifetime risk of a diagnosis is one in six, and predictions are that the risk for men in the UK will be the same within a decade. Currently, nearly 32,000 British men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year and 10,000 die from it.
The prostate is a small gland, about the size of a walnut, that sits under the bladder by the urethra (the urine duct) and makes fluid that passes into the seminal duct to help sperm swim along. It’s a bit like a refuelling station in a sperm marathon.
So what can you do to make sure you, or the men in your life, never suffer from what I believe to be a preventable disease, caused by a combination of diet and lifestyle factors. There is also growing evidence that these same principles, when applied in the early stages of prostate cancer, may also reverse the condition.
