Cancer - prostate
 
Standard Definition

Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men in the Western world and, after lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer death in men over age 55. The incidence of prostate cancer increases dramatically with each decade after age 50. Japan and Africa have low rates of the disease, however on migrating to Western countries their risk quickly increases, indicating that lifestyle and diet play a significant role.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Environmental, nutritional, hormonal, inflammatory and genetic factors have been implicated in prostate cancer. For example, it has been shown that saturated fats stimulate prostate cell proliferation via an inflammatory pathway, and that cadmium exposure and low levels of dietary antioxidants increases risk via a free radical pathway. The hormonal responsiveness of prostate cancer cells have lead to the discovery of the beneficial role of phytoestrogens in prostate cancer.

As a result, prostate cancer and recurrences may be significantly reduced by dietary, lifestyle and natural means.
