Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, it’s talked about more than ever before and I do believe that it’s getting detected earlier, ensuring a better chance of recovery, but how can we keep the prostate as healthy as possible? Nothing is 100% proven to stop you getting cancer, but we can reduce our risks……here are some top tips.
  1. Eat a balanced colourful diet, tomatoes, watermelon, and other red foods owe their bright colour to a powerful antioxidant called lycopene.
  2. Get some sun, lack of vitamin D can increase your chances of prostate cancer.
  3. Drinking four to five cups of coffee every day can lower your chances of fatal and high-grade prostate cancer, according to a 2014 review of clinical studies.
  4. Frequent ejaculation may decrease prostate cancer risk
  5. Get your prostate checked when you’re over 50, over 45 if you have in it your family.
  6. Take action if you feel like something might be wrong.
