Losing Weight Prevents Prostate Cancer

 

A new study by researchers from the American Cancer Society and the Duke University Prostate Center found that men who lose excess weight have a lower risk for aggressive prostate cancer.

Men should try to not gain weight as they grow older and, if overweight, should lose at least 11 pounds to help prevent getting prostate cancer.

One out of six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Regular checkups and natural supplements all help to maintain a healthy prostrate.
