A New Diet to Quash Inflammation May Benefit Men's Prostate Health

avocado is a source of healthy fats that may lower men’s risk of aggressive prostate cancer, whereas fish oils may increase men’s risk of developing the disease

The anti-inflammatory diet is trending; could it help prevent prostate cancer or enhance survivorship? Recent evidence suggests: yes

June 20, 2013 - An unresolved question in prostate cancer research goes like this: Does microscopic inflammation of prostate cells lend to the eventual development of prostate cancer? And if so, could a diet that aims to reduce cellular inflammation help men avoid this disease? If this seems far-fetched it’s worth remembering that inflammation is implicated in a number of diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s, not to mention aging in general.

As cells in the prostate transition from normal to cancerous, they may enter an in-between state known as prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia or PIN for short. Not all PIN cells in the prostate will become cancerous, but it is thought that many of these cells are precursors to cancerous prostate cells, and men found to have PIN cells on biopsy are often followed closely to be sure cancer does not arise. More recently, Dr. Angelo De Marzo of Johns Hopkins Medicine discovered what is thought to be a prelude to PIN. He discovered that even before prostate cells enter a PIN state, they exhibit significant signs of inflammation.

Dr. De Marzo dubbed these cells PIA cells for proliferative inflammatory atrophy. Under the microscope PIA cells look shrunken and inflamed. This discovery has led researchers to speculate that inflammation may be a very early push factor inducing healthy prostate epithelial cells onto a cancer trajectory.

The connection between inflammation, obesity and prostate cancer

While it remains theory that inflammation may be an essential link in the development of prostate cancer, the evidence is strong enough to warrant serious attention. Studies are ongoing to get more definitive answers on the inflammation/prostate cancer link, but there is already evidence that obesity increases the risk of developing prostate cancer and that obesity increases inflammation throughout the body. Men with excess inflammation of their prostate gland are at greater risk of having high-grade, aggressive prostate tumors. Furthermore obesity increases the risk of death from prostate cancer.

Breaking Medical News:
Two Studies Show Low-Fat and Fat-Free Milk Linked to Prostate Cancer

Two new studies published in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed a positive correlation between low-fat and nonfat milk consumption and the risk of prostate cancer.
One study looked at questionnaires by 82,483 men in the Multiethnic Cohort Study, 4,404 of whom developed prostate cancer over a mean follow-up of eight years. Whether in the form of food or supplements, there was no association between calcium and vitamin D intake and prostate cancer risk

The best MDs can be wrong on simple issues

by neverneverland

Like this.
for example, some of the best doctors don't know ANYTHING about nutrition.
My father is a great example. He had a great career for decades, but he was always in terrible health due to eating habits. He was clueless when it came to what to eat, what to avoid eating.
we always argued over this. Meanwhile, i'm 45yo and in excellent health, and he has had prostate cancer, heart disease, and has been overweight for 30yrs.
Back in the days when i used to trust ALL doctors, i would go them everytime i had the slightest issue

Scare tactics from the meat & dairy industries

And people promoting the stereotype that vegetarian men are "effeminate." Also, the Weston Price foundation (founded by a 1930s dentist) puts out a lot of anti-soy rhetoric, and promotes meat & dairy.
