What Causes Benign Prostatic Hypertophy BPH?

This is invariably a disease of men over the age of 50. The symptoms produced by an enlarging prostate gland are occasionally surprisingly few, even in very large glands. Usually there is some decrease in the force of the urinary stream, difficulty initiating urination, and incomplete bladder emptying. The man who is not emptying his bladder completely will urinate and then be able to urinate a considerable amount of urine again in 15 or 20 minutes. In the later stages, urine dribbles out instead of flowing and finally straining to empty the bladder fails to accomplish the passage of any urine (urinary retention which requires catheter drainage of the bladder).

The current concept accepted by many physicians is that testosterone is related to prostate gland enlargement (BPH). However, young males with soaring levels of testosterone never develop prostate enlargement and elderly males with very low levels of testosterone do get BPH.

An enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts testosterone to dihydro-testosterone, which is far more active than testosterone in binding to sites in prostate cells that stimulate cell growth. The herb saw palmetto and the drug Proscar both inhibit 5-alpha-reductase. A 1998 review of 18 clinical trials using saw palmetto found that 75 % of men with BPH who took saw palmetto for two months reported an improvement in their urinary symptoms. Saw palmetto is found in health food stores.

A research study of 207 males with BPH who were given daily doses of testosterone revealed that these patients developed shrinkage of the prostate gland, decreased symptoms of bladder obstruction and falls in PSA and estradiol levels. This suggests properly administered testosterone is good for the prostate gland. British physician, Dr. Malcolm Carruthers, came to the same conclusion after treating more than 1000 men lacking testosterone both by testosterone implants and injections as reported in his 1996 book Maximizing Manhood. He noted neither enlargement of the prostate or prostate cancer in these males treated with testosterone.

All males in developed nations are victims of estrogen excess caused by petrochemical exposure, estrogenic hormones given to promote growth of animals, plastics, pesticides, and herbicides, all of which have estrogenic effects in males and females. In males the enzyme aromatase converts testosterone to estrogen. Males getting testosterone by injection may occasionally develop increased estrogen levels because of this enzyme aromatase, whereas males taking testosterone by implants and creams are less likely to develop this problem. Enlargement of the prostate gland in elderly males is probably caused by estrogen excess. Estrogen accumulates in the prostate gland of elderly males beginning...

"Fictitious Assertion" in your 1st graph?

Or is it the TV ad with which you quibble? You have a point, but it isn't clearly stated. That could be one of the as yet undiscovered side effects of something you take, eat or smoke.
Don't you just love it when Big Pharma advises you to "tell your doctor. . ."? My doctor is over-booked and has no time to listen to complaints about unwanted or unexpected side effects from the pills he's pushing; he does, however, take a moment to wax nostalgic for those golden years when he was ship's doctor on an aircraft carrier; usually while he's probing my prostate gland (enlargement and hardening of the prostate, or BPH, is a known side effect of something he's pushing and of the over-the-counter products for sniffles and allergies, such as diphenhydramine (Benedryl) slathered on mosquito...

Studies and cases have described findings of increased incidences of many disorders, including:
· Adrenal gland dysfunction
· Atheosclerosis (hardening of the arteries leading to heart disease)
· Autoimmune orchitis (degeneration of testicular tissues due to antibody action)
· Chronic inflammation including the formation of sperm granulomas
· Chronic testicular pain (Post-Vasectomy Pain Syndrome)
· Circulatory problems including phlebitis

More poor design in the human body

All plants and animals synthesize their own vitamin C...except humans, due to a defective human gene.
The pharynx in humans controls both swallowing and breating, resulting in greater chance of choking.
In human males, the urethra passes right through the prostate gland, a gland very prone to infection and subsequent enlargement. This blocks the urethra and is a very common medical problem in males. Putting a collapsible tube through an organ that is very likely to expand and block flow in this tube is not good design.
