The Prostate

Oh, yes men…that little gland that helps to assist our ‘little guys’ to swim the ‘great barrier reef’ if you will. It is also the gland that can give us a lot of grief if not taken care of. And you may ask, “Well, how in the world do I take care of one of my glands?” And the simplest answer is: Watch your weight. This is actually a very good thing to do for ALL of your internal organs. It’s been proving that being overweight and especially having excessive abdominal fat (like our beer-belly) actually can progress cells into cancer. That’s pretty wild and a kind-of scary thing to consider…especially since I know so many guys who like to eat and drink, like myself. So as much as exercising seems like a chore – it turns out it can help fight the battle against us getting cancer and something called Prostatitis – which is the inflammation of our Prostate.

Also, eating your fruits and vegetables, especially red ones like watermelon, tomatoes and such can help too.

And since summer is here, then why not? Plenty of picnics and BBQs involving those two types of foods. And I haven’t met one single guy yet who is looking forward to getting the news that he has Prostate cancer or Prostatitis.

If you would like to know more about those two diseases and/or are a bit concerned and would like to get screened it’s as easy as clicking here. You definitely want to get tested immediately if you are showing symptoms such as blood in your urine, not being able to get an erection, or if you have difficulty and/or pain when urinating.
