Can Prostate Cancer Be Prevented? Contributor: Christopher Bruno Published On: 15/09/2008

Prostate Cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men but what if you could take steps to prevent it? This September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and while cancer is scary, you can take positive steps to protect your prostate. You might even be surprised how pleasant prevention can be.

Researchers found that men, who averaged 21 ejaculations a month, were a third less likely to have prostate cancer, than those who ejaculated less frequently.

That's because semen contains carcinogenic, or cancer causing, substances. ¼Flushing ½ them regularly may lower the risk of damage.

You can also try drinking a daily glass of wine! One study found that the antioxidants in fermented grapes can inhibit the growth of cancer cells and cut prostate cancer risk in half!

The hair-loss treatment, Propecia, generically called finasteride, may also help reduce the likelihood of developing prostate cancer. Finasteride blocks the production of an undesirable hormone that triggers hair-loss and prostate growth. So, if you're starting to lose your hair, Propecia might be able to help you look good today and live longer tomorrow.

Follow these tips, and your prostate will have extra protection against cancer
