Can Better Nutrition Cure Prostate Cancer?
We know that a body that is well fortified and has been nourished with good nutrition and nutrients is much better prepared to fight off illness in diseases that may come about. It's estimated that per capita, men in the United States are five times more likely to die from prostate cancer than men in Japan.
Epidemiolical research which is the study of disease patterns in diverse groups of people, suggests that the difference in diet plays a role in the increased rate of prostate cancer in the US. This research is suggested that both the difference in diet and lifestyle may be contributing factors to the increased cancer rate
Other research has estimated that as many as one third of all cancer deaths in the United States can easily be attributed to both our diet and lifestyle choices. Our fast food lifestyle simply doesn't provide the adequate nutrition necessary to keep our bodies and immune systems operating at their best. But again, this is a guess based on a study of empirical data only. You cannot deny that there are definite patterns that tie our dietary nutrition to some illnesses
We know that some nutritional supplements such as saw Palmetto can help with prostatis, a swelling or hardening of the prostate gland. Daily use of saw Palmetto can relieve many of the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. This by itself may suggest that by providing additional nutritional supplements, our bodies are better able to regulate and correct developing problems.
The American Institute for Cancer Research has stated that as much as one third of all cancer related disease is preventable through a combination of nutrition changes, maintaining an active lifestyle and healthy weight control.
The study by the Cancer Research Institute was based on results of a review of over 4,500 scientific studies on cancer and dietary nutrition. It was this empirical evidence that form the basis of their claim that about one third of all cancer illness is preventable
A healthy goal to keep all cancer but especially that of the prostate at bay, should probably include
- Limiting the percentage of the dietary fat consumption to about 15-20% of total daily calories.
- Mom was right,you should eat a lot of fruits and vegetables every day.
- Keep Dietary Fiber preferably around 25-35 g every single day.
- Balance your intake of calories to your energy output. This means the key is to exercise more folks. :o)
- Add Dietary Vitamins, nutrients herbs and supplements to make certain your body has everything it needs to get and stay healthy
Conclusively, even though there is no genuine proof that this type of nutritional regimen will keep you healthy, the fact is that it definitely couldn't hurt. You may find more energy through an active and healthy lifestyle by eating right and giving your body the nutrition it needs to stay healthy.
