Some Prostates Are Larger than Others

DESCRIPTION: Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH—an enlarged prostate gland—affects 80% of older men, but like many other Western chronic diseases it appears to be a consequence of our diet. The reference to diet affecting the growth of prostate cancer is covered in Tuesday’s Ex Vivo Cancer Proliferation Bioassay (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/developing-an-ex-vivo-cancer-proliferation-bioassay/), with a follow-up in yesterday’s video-of-the-day (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-it-the-diet-the-exercise-or-both/). Until today I only had one BPH video (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/just-the-flax-maam/), in which flax seeds were found to work as well as the leading drug without any of the adverse side effects. In tomorrow’s video-of-the-day, Prostate vs. Plants (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prostate-versus-plants/), I’ll explore other foods that have been found to help. Then on Monday, Prostate vs. a Plant-Based Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prostate-versus-a-plant-based-diet/), will replicate the prostate cancer experiments with normal prostate cells to see if eating healthier can also slow their growth. I have more than twice as many videos on women’s health (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/womens-health/) compared to men’s health (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/mens-health/), but these next few days will help close the gap!
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/some-prostates-are-larger-than-others/ and he’ll try to answer it!
