You probably know someone who’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer… whether it’s been a father, a grandfather, a friend, or even yourself.
After all, prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers that a man can get. It is estimated that as many as one in six men in North America will develop cancer of the prostate in their lifetime. And many will die of it.
Of course, prostate cancer rates are going up as the population ages. The majority of prostate cancers occur in a man between the ages of 40 and 90.
Whether you’ve crossed the threshold of 40 or not, there are steps you can take now to help prevent prostate cancer later in your life or even help treat it if you’ve already been afflicted.
Recent research on Omega-3 fatty acids shows that these fats may help to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer as well as reducing aggressiveness of existing cancers.
