Prostate Cancer: Diet
read more on the link : Researchers from Canada have found that having a diet of red meat, organ meats, soft drink and bottled water increased the risk of getting prostate cancer. They compared the diets of 80 men with prostate cancer, and 334 healthy men, and the diet just described more than doubled the risk of developing prostate cancer. So what prostate diet can reduce the risk of prostate cancer? Swedish researchers examined the diet of 1499 men with prostate cancer and 1130 men who were healthy, and they published their findings in the Cancer Causes and Control journal. They found that eating foods rich in phytoestrogens decreased the risk of prostate cancer. Phytoestrogens are plant molecules that have a weak estrogenic effect. They are made converted in the intestines from plant precursors by bacteria as they digest food. They are taken up by the same parts of the body that process the hormone estrogen. Interestingly, one of the treatments for prostate cancer by doctors involves using estrogens to reduce the level of testosterone in men with advanced prostate cancer. It does this indirectly, through its effect on the hypothalamus, as less luteinizing hormone releasing hormone is produced by the hypothalamus. This means not as much luteinizing hormone is released by the body, which suppresses the production of testosterone. High doses of estrogens for men can lead to cardiovascular complications. But phytoestrogens obtained from diet, in less quantities than a drug, and with a milder effect to start with, should not pose a problem. And researchers don't yet know what exactly causes phytoestrogens to have such a protective effect, whether it is similar to that of the estrogen treatment for advanced prostate cancers. And they don't know which phytoestrogens are the most active. So what phytoestrogen foods could you include in a diet for a healthy prostate? Soy beans and nuts are a good source. Soy and nuts contain a type of phytoestrogen called isoflavones, whilst berries and seeds contain lignans. Foods could include peanuts, sunflower seeds, peanuts, and berries. The only possible concerns with soy is that a study in mice found that male mice that had a type of heart disease that people also have, suffered heart failure when fed a soy based diet. Whether this extrapolates to the human population is yet to be established. But it may be wise for those me who have this particular genetic heart condition, dilated cardiomyopathy, to be cautious about soy products in their diet. But for other men, soy products could be good news. A meta analysis, which is a study of related studies, published in the International Journal of Cancer, found that diets high in soy lowered men's risk of prostate cancer by 30%. Another important mineral to consider for men is zinc. Zinc is used by men's bodies to make some of the male hormones, and for general prostate health. A deficiency in zinc can lead to problems with the testicles, the prostate, and the health of the sperm. Foods that are great sources of zinc include seeds like pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower; nuts like almonds, brazil, cashews and walnuts; and foods like lettuce, oats and onions. Raw onion is particularly suggested by Paul Bedson, a natural therapist. He also suggests vegetable juice made of equal parts of beetroot, carrot, and cucumber in cases where the prostate gland is enlarged. Cranberry juice, a cup drunk three times a day, is also recommended in this case. prostate, prostrate, cancer, prostate cancer, diagnosing prostate cancer, symptoms of prostate cancer, information on prostate cancer, prostate cancer treatment, mens cancer, men's cancer, PSA, psa, therapy, hormone, symptoms, prostatectomy, brachytherapy, cryosurgery, metastatic, 3D conformal, information, diet, research, radiation, radiotherapy, prevention, screening, localised, support, surgery, awareness, treatment, advanced, donation, symptom, bracytherapy, prostatic, gleason, tookit, Tool Kit, gleason score, biopsy, psa test, prostate gland, prostate specific antigen, HIFU, hifu, bisphosphonates, cryotherapy, health professionals, charity, men, campaigning, fundraising, gland, helpline, prostate cancer publications, prostate cancer booklets, diagnosed, palliative radiotherapy, chemotherapy, continence, events, fundraise, campaign, specialist nurses, african caribbean, prostate cancer charity, prostate cancer symptoms, trus, prostate problems, prostate cancer awareness month, prostate biopsy, gleason grading, DRE, BPH, prostatitis, localised prostate cancer, locally advanced prostate cancer, advanced prostate cancer, active surveillance, hormone therapy, high dose rate brachytherapy, bisphosphonates, palliative radiotherapy, clinical trials, HIFU,Prostate cancer, PSA,prostate cancer, oncology, medical animation, health app, educational, prostate cancer animated video, prostate cancer information, prostate cancer video

Prostate Cancer Super Survivor - Archie's Envita review
Envita is a leading cancer, Lyme disease, and chronic disease Unipathic treatment center in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our goal is to use the best of real time cancer and Lyme disease diagnostics to determine the best integrative cancer and Lyme disease treatments from around the world to help our patients receive a viable 2nd opinion. In 2008, Archie was experiencing prostate problems. A biopsy was soon performed which revealed he had prostate cancer. Archie was informed that a cancer clinic would contact him with details to begin treatment. Two and a half months passed without word from the clinic. Upon contacting the clinic, Archie discovered they had no knowledge of his case and he had been forgotten in the current medical system. Archie attempted to seek out a prostate removal to help rid himself of the cancer but was denied because of his age. Having lost faith in the Canadian Medicare system, Archie sought out Envita to remedy his cancer diagnosis before it could spread to his bones and other organs. Archie is currently in remission. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Be sure to visit and subscribe to our channel for other informative videos: https://www.youtube.com/c/EnvitaNaturalMedicalCenterScottsdale To get a hold of a patient care coordinator today call us at: 1-866-830-4576 To receive information about a condition you may be dealing with visit https://www.envita.com/contact Visit out website to learn more: https://www.envita.com/ For cancer treatment info: https://www.envita.com/conditions/cancer For Envita's articles on cancer visit: https://www.envita.com/cancer For Lyme disease treatment info: https://www.envita.com/conditions/lyme-disease For Envita's articles on Lyme disease visit: https://www.envita.com/lyme-disease Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Envita Twitter: https://twitter.com/envitamedical Google+: https://plus.google.com/+EnvitaNaturalMedicalCenterScottsdale Tumblr: https://envitamedicalcenters.tumblr.com/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/envitamedicalce/ Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/user10286984

Low risk localized prostate cancer no harm from waiting
ORLANDO, FLORIDA—A decision to delay surgery or radiotherapy for early prostate cancer is in the best interests of most patients according to research presented to the 2013 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium by Dr Andrew Loblaw from the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. His group's research has found that the rate of "migration" of Gleason grade — representing disease progression — was gradual: accounting for no more than a third of patients developing a form of the disease requiring treatment within ten years. The remaining patients can be spared the side effects of treatment.

Prostate Cancer Treatments Compared
Learn to compare the results of a new study that shows the effectiveness of the various prostate cancer treatments including robotic prostatectomy, brachytherapy, IMRT, proton radiation, HIFU and others. The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group compared treatment results across 83,565 Patients, 242 Studies, some for as many as 15 years. This video provides an overview of the comparison web page covering treatment results for low risk prostate cancer. Walking though the web page, the viewer learns the intent and meaning of the graph, central to understanding the low risk comparison web page. The video explains the use and interactions of the web page, with step by step instructions leading the viewer through the function and links found on the page. Closed Captions, (CC), enabled for English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional). See how effective each prostate cancer treatment is at preventing recurrence of cancer in men, and curing their cancer. http://www.pctrf.org Video Development - Dean Dubinsky Video Transcript: Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation Increasing Knowledge - Building Hope The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group has reviewed studies covering 83,565 patients, a total of 242 studies, some for as long as 15 years. Of that group, 30,609 patients, data from 62 studies were identified in the Low Risk Group. This tutorial will cover the Low Risk Comparison chart for Prostate Cancer Treatments. The treatments on this chart are Surgery, External Beam Radiation, Seeds or Brachytherapy, the combined treatment of Brachytherapy and External Beam Radiation, Proton Radiation, High Dose Rate Radiation and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. Note that High Dose Rate Radiation and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound do not have enough data points to make up an Ellipse, but the data is included for completeness. To understand more about Low Risk Prostate Cancer and the Treatment options, select the Low Risk Commentary. Here you will find a description of the disease and a overview of the options for Low Risk Patients. To view the results of a treatment, select the square next to the treatment name. For example, selecting surgery causes a series of dots and squares to appear on the page, along with an Ellipse. Each dot or square represents a study with a different number of patients. To learn more about a particular study, hover over the dot. If you click on the dot, a link will appear that will take you to an abstract of the study. To see the entire list of referenced articles on this page, click on the Low Risk Article Reference link. Here you will find a link to all the studies, covering the 30,609 patients, used to create the Low Risk Chart. The scale on the left side of the graph is Percent of PSA Progression Free. Measuring PSA Progression Free, as opposed to survival, is a true indicator of the success of the Treatment. A PSA Progression Free of 100% implies that the cancer has not returned, and no follow up treatment was necessary. The bottom of the graph tracks time in years, in this case up to 16 years. The longer a treatment can maintain a PSA Progression Free close to 100%, the more effective the Treatment. The treatment ellipse is mathematically calculated to help you visualize how the patients are doing with the selected treatment. The midpoint of the ellipse shows on average how the patients responded to that treatment. The direction of the ellipse, shows how the patients trended over time. To learn more about the process behind creating the ellipse's, just click on How the Charts Work. If you choose to focus your study on just one treatment, you can de-select the others on the chart. This capability also works within the key. You can change the data presented, by selecting or de-selecting them in the key. In the case of surgery, there are two types of surgery represented by the ellipse, radical prostatectomy and robotic surgery. Using the key, you can focus in on one or both, by viewing just the data points. If you are unfamiliar or would like to understand more about a treatment, click on the treatment name and the Treatment Description page will appear. Here you will find descriptions of all the treatments being compared on the graph. In the upper right hand corner of the chart are the options to Print or Download the current page, reflecting the treatments you have currently selected. With all treatments selected, this graph displays the results representing 30,609 patients from 62 different studies with prostate cancer and their treatment results, some of them for a period of over 15 years.

Rod Gilbert, My Prostate Cancer Story
Rod Gilbert is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played for the New York Rangers in the National Hockey League. *Transcript* This is Rod Gilbert, Hall of Famer, Hockey Player. A drastic event occurred when I was a little bit younger. That the news that my dad was admitted in the hospital, had prostate cancer. So, immediately I went to Montreal and visited him. For the next two years, he was in hell. He was suffering. It was uncontrollable, not operable. So, for the following two years I frequently went to Montreal. As he admitted, he had never had it checked or never had the good fortune to prevent it or do something about it. And now it had spread out of the capsule into his lymph nodes and his bones. And it was just a matter of time. So, with great disappointment, he passed. And I promised myself it would not happen to me. When I did come back to New York, I would regularly get checked. A really good friend of mine, David Coke had made a contribution to Cornell Presbyterian. He has a department and had donated a hundred million dollars, and had named Dr Scardino as head for prostate cancer. So, I called his office. We were good friends for many years and I had gotten in to see Dr Scardino. He said, "Well, what's your Gleason Score, what is this, let me review your test..." I said, "Doc, you have to take it totally out." He said, "Dr Zaleski here maybe could give you some radiation, and would you like to meet with him?" I said, "Absolutely. If it was your dad, Dr Scardino, he's the chairman of prostate cancer research there, what would you do?" He said, "Well, let's talk to Dr Zaleski." Dr. Zaleski had taken care of Mayor Guiliani and had operated on him with a method of using some seeds to kill the cancer, injected 90 seeds. And then 28 radiation treatments after that. I agreed to do that. That pleased me a lot. And Dr Scardino guaranteed me that after that treatment, if by any chance the cancer came back, that we could remove the tumor, or the cancer, remove the prostate. So, I went to get the operation of inserting the seeds and the radiation. And it's been seven years that I'm cancer free with a PSA of 002. So, my advice is to get checked early, and possibly get a second opinion because it's quite frequent that people do have cancer in their prostate. It's very slow growing, but at the same time if they require treatments, if they catch it early enough, which I'm trying to advise you, and promote the fact that if you detect it early, it's curable at a very high rate, in the 90 percent rates. So, please, I implore it upon you to get early checkups. Sometimes even if your PSA, which is only one method of possible detecting it, you ask your urologist what other sure, sure results that would tell you exactly what you have. So, I want you to take this advice and support a cure for prostate cancer and certainly early detection.

Study: Men with low-risk prostate cancer can put off treatment
Why would anyone diagnosed with cancer delay treatment? A recent study concludes that many men with low-risk prostate cancer should do just that, because they are likely to live just as long, and enjoy a better quality of life, than those who initiate treatment immediately. In the study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, investigators compared the costs and benefits of initial treatment versus observation via either watchful waiting or active surveillance. They found that both approaches to observation were more effective and less costly than initial treatment for men who were newly diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer at ages 65 and 75. http://www.umassmed.edu/news/2013/research/men-lowrisk-prostate-cancer-treatment.aspx

Dr. Logothetis Discusses Prostate Cancer Therapy
Christopher J. Logothetis, MD, Department Chair, Department of Genitourinary Medical Oncology, Division of Cancer Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the wealth of new drugs available to treat prostate cancer. The addition of 2nd generation androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) has resulted in an increased knowledge of androgen's roll in prostate cancer. Links have been developed throughout the natural history of the disease, including areas where androgen was not previously thought to play a roll. The arsenal against prostate cancer continues to grow and now contains bone targeted therapies, radiopharmaceuticals, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, and new ADT agents. The onslaught of new agents demands an understanding of how to optimize in combinations. In some settings combinations enhance each drug, but in others there is a negative effect. Logothetis suggests the creation of a handbook that helps physicians understand how to use these drugs wisely and effectively.
