Prostate Cancer Statistics:
1. Around a 1/4 of all men who are diagnosed each year with cancer have prostate cancer. 2. You find that prostate cancer is one of the deadliest diseases amongst men, now being the most common non-skin cancer in America. In 2005 to date over 232,000 men have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 30,000 deaths are estimated as a result of that figure.
3. The success rate of conventional medicine cures is estimated at only 20 - 30%, with many negative drug side effects... and these are figures supplied from Glaxo SmithKline, a major pharmaceutical company!
4. Those side effects can include constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, decrease in sexual desire, nausea, trouble in sleeping, bloatedness, indigestion, drowsiness, dryness of mouth, flu-like symptoms.
5. Surgical and procedural failure rates give no more confidence, with damage to the urethral wall in conventional stricture treatments and thermal tissue damage from laser or electrocautery treatments.
WHAT YOU CAN DO...
Prostate cancer is a very hard disease to reverse once started. With the correct knowledge you can very likely avoid becoming one of these frightening statistics. There are many natural substances that are known to be effective in maintaining prostate health and reducing the risk of prostate cancer... for example, Querticin, Grape seed, and various other herbal extracts and nutrients. When you first start to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, you possibly can reverse that need by using Beta Sitosterol or Saw Palmetto in conjunction with other nutrients.
If you haven't got prostate cancer, then you should be doing everything you can to make sure you don't get it. Prostate cancer along with all cancers are generally preventable IF you take steps early enough. In simple terms this means ensuring that your body has enough essential nutrients early enough in life to give your cells the ammunition to prevent them mutating into cancer cells.
Even though there are some groups of people who still claim that you can get all the nutrients your cells need via your diet, the reality is something quite different, no matter how good your diet is. The problem gets worse as you get older because not only do you tend to eat less but your body does not process the nutrients in your food as efficiently as it did when you were younger.
There really is only one way to ensure that you get these essential nutrients and that is to take quality supplements. The challenge is to know what to supplement with. For protection against all forms of cancer you need to take a wide range of nutrients. For example, a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals (but in modest amounts), plus a broad spectrum of amino acids, trace elements, herbal extracts and specialty nutrients such as DIM 3,3' (diindolylmethane) which is the active ingredient found in Broccoli.
