It is a common new year’s resolution to take steps toward making yourself healthy. If you are an aging man, I would suggest taking general steps toward a more healthy life, but approach this in a way that is also good for your prostate. Prostate cancer is very common in older men, and as you approach that age, it is important that you take the necessary precautions.
A change in diet should be on everyone’s new year’s resolution check list. Tailoring your diet to also help with your prostate health is a smart decision. There are certain foods that you can eat that will help decrease your chances of developing prostate cancer, or help the treatment if you already have it.
Tomatoes are a good place to start. They contain lycopene, which studies have shown decrease a man’s chances of developing prostate cancer if they haven’t already had it. Additionally, if you don’t eat your full serving of vegetables, you definitely should start. Green vegetables contain compounds that have been known to break down cancer causing substances.
Everyone should be cautious of their health on a normal basis. But if you choose to make your resolution getting healthy, it is a good idea to do so in a way that will help you prevent the development of prostate cancer.
