CAN MILK CAUSE PROSTATE CANCER?

One of the biggest fears many men have is something happening to them that they would never expect. As uncomfortable as it may be for some to talk about, prostate cancer is relatively common - effecting 1 in 7 men in their lifetime. Most of these cases occur in men as they reach old age - almost ironically, just in time for the average person to retire. While some good news can be taken away from this given that prostate cancer is highly treatable - with an almost 100% survival rate in the Western world - it comes at quite a cost like all forms of cancer.

Dr. McDougall's 10 Diet-Induced Changes That Slow and Reverse Cancer

Dr. McDougall's 10 Diet-Induced Changes That Slow and Reverse Cancer

While doing some reading on Dr. John McDougall's website, I came across a list of 10 recommended dietary changes that can help to reduce cancer risk and reverse cancer in patients already feeling the effects. This is some seriously powerful stuff, and goes to show how a whole foods, plant-based diet can really have a positive impact on our bodies. In this specific case, reducing the risk of cancer (or effects of cancer) is powerful given how many of us have lost important people in our lives to the cancer battle. It is great to know that it is, for many, avoidable and treatable by changing our dietary core.

Applying the Precautionary Principle to Nutrition and Cancer - Reduce Cancer Risk with a Plant-Based Diet!

Those absorbed in a plant-based lifestyle know the positive impact of the food we eat on our bodies and minds. The images displayed was assembled by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and quite easily displays what we know to be the truth: plant-based foods have a positive impact on the reduction of cancer risk. Many foods that have come to be associated with the "Standard American Diet" great increase cancer risk.

A Vegan, Plant-Based Diet May Protect Against Prostate Cancer

A Vegan, Plant-Based Diet May Protect Against Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer accounts for about 25% of cancer cases among men. While relative to some forms of cancer it is far more treatable, with a 95% - 100% survival rate in the current day-and-age, it still remains a condition that can be painful, difficult to cope with, and expensive when you consider the medical attention required. Modern science is beginning to investigate how a plant-based diet can be used to prevent and protect against prostate cancer. This, no doubt, serves as an important piece of evidence to add to our backpacks of knowledge: if eating a plant-based, whole foods, vegan diet can literally protect us from cancer, what can't it do?
