Several tips for prostate health

Here are some tips about prostate health:

 

Routine Tests: Until recently, prostate specific antigen test (PSA) was recommended once a year for all men above the age of 50 to screen for prostate cancer. But evidence suggests that detection by this test is not very reliable. Even if cancer is detected early, weather it affects mortality is under debate. If you are over 50, ask your physician if you should opt for a prostate exam and PSA test.

 

Diet: A diet high in saturated fats and red meat increases risk of prostate problems. The best option for reducing risk of prostate diseases and for good health in general is a vegetarian diet. A diet high in fiber and containing soy is believed to be beneficial for prostate health. One can substitute red meats with leaner white meat (fish).

 
Drink  water: 3-4 liters to be precise. Water helps digestion, facilitates removal of toxins and helps flush out bacteria. It is the simplest way to reduce incidence of urinary tract infections and will also improve overall metabolism.
 
Fruits and vegetables: Apple pies only benefit the restaurants selling them. The apple that goes into the pie and its nutrients are long dead. Fit in as many uncooked fruits and vegetables into your routine as possible. Cranberry juice has long been believed to alleviate urinary problems. Also, avoid eating fruits and vegetable with other meals to derive their complete benefit. An exception is cooked tomatoes as these have been shown to contain the cancer fighting agent Lycopene.
 
Multi-vitamins: Evidence that vitamin and mineral supplements help in maintaining prostate health has been patchy so far. Getting all required nutrients from your normal diet may not practically be possible. Supplements are the next best thing. Just be sure not to exceed the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance).
 
Exercise: No direct link has yet been established between exercise and reduction in risk of prostate cancer. However, exercise does help in reducing obesity, improving blood circulation and increasing BMR (Basic metabolic rate), all of which help in fighting cancer.
 
Cycling: Traditional bike seats are leaf shaped with a nose at the front. The body’s weight ends up resting on the penis against this nose. It limits blood supply to the region and can also cause direct injury. It has been shown to cause erectile dysfunction and other urological complications. Instead go for square seats that do not have a nose. Such seats put your weight on to your pelvic bones that are meant to bear weight and also feel a lot more comfortable.
