Resveratrol Useful in Fighting Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer causes more deaths from cancer than other types of tumors in men older than 75 years. It is usually treated with surgery and radiation therapy when it has not spread to other parts of the body, and with chemotherapy and hormone therapy when other organs have been involved. The chances of survival from this type of cancer depend on the stage of the disease and the general health of the patient, in addition to the availability of proper treatment. A new study from the University of Missouri brings more hope to patients who are being treated for the […]

Green Tea Prevents Prostate Cancer

Researchers from the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles report that drinking lots of green tea daily can help protect against prostate cancer by reducing inflammation.

The database provided information on the participants’ demographic and physical characteristics, including measurements of blood pressure, blood glucose and […]

Prostate Cancer Linked to Obesity

Although prostate cancer is very common among older men, it is very responsive to treatment when detected early. However, a new study shows that prostate cancer in overweight or obese men may be more aggressive because the fat that surrounds it can provide an environment favorable to its growth. Researchers Prof Gema Frühbeck and Dr Ricardo Ribeiro report in BMC Medicine the results of their investigation in which they found that overweight or obese men had different levels of gene activity in the fat tissue surrounding their diseased prostate glands compared to leaner men. Fat cells play many important roles […]
