How to Prevent Prostate Cancer

Knowing how to prevent prostate cancer can make all the difference in keeping a healthy body and sex life as you get older.

The number one thing you can do for the prevention of prostate cancer is… estrogen management.

Similar to breast cancer, estrogen is the driving force behind wild uncontrolled growth of prostate cancer cells.

Thankfully there are many nutritional and drug strategies you can take advantage of as part of a good prevention program.

Factors That Prevent Prostate Cancer

1. Low fat diet.

2. Low body fat percentage.

3. Low calcium and copper.

4. Low phytoestrogens (plant estrogens like soy).

5. Low xenoestrogens (man made estrogen mimicking chemicals i.e. plastics (bottled water, plastic wrap, containers).

6. High vitamin D levels and sun exposure.

Your consumption of dietary fat, calcium, and copper are intimately linked to increased estrogen levels. When one goes up, the others go up as well.

By leaning up on the amount of fat and dairy (calcium) you eat, while consuming plenty of estrogen antagonists (supplements), and keeping your weight down, it will considerably help with preventing prostate cancer.

Anti-Estrogen Supplements for Prostate Cancer Prevention

  • Molybdenum 500mcg
  • MSM 3 grams
  • Selenium 200mcg
  • Vitamin A 10,000IU
  • Vitamin B6 100mg
  • Vitamin C 1000mg
  • Vitamin D 4000IU
  • Zinc 50mg

Knowing the preventative factors are important to keep in mind during your daily activities. The environmental estrogens around you every day can easily build up over time.

It has been theorized these estrogens are the reason the average male’s testosterone is about 20% lower than 40 years ago.

It may be a good idea for your doctor to check your estrogen levels. If your test scores are over the range, it would be a good idea to get them down, with the help of medication. Small dosages of Arimidex (Anastrozole) or Aromasin (Exemestane) should do the trick.
