Prostate Cancer

DO you know that Prostate cancer is expected to kill one man out of every thirty five in America. That is about three percent of males will die from this disease.

Omega 3 fish oil supplements have been shown to have a beneficial effect for those who have the disease by increasing their life expectancy beyond previous expectations. These supplements have also been shown to decrease the levels of the disease in groups of men most susceptible to the disease for either genetic or lifestyle reasons.

Factors affecting the possibility of developing prostate cancer are genetic and lifestyle.

Certain groups of men are more prone to the disease because of the genes of their ancestors. This unfortunately is unavoidable. We cannot choose our genes but the statistical probability can be reduced by changing our diet to increase the factors that prevent the development of prostate cancer.

The lifestyle factors that affect the possibility of developing prostate cancer are amongst others overweight and smoking. These factors we can choose to change. We can also increase the possibility of avoiding prostate cancer by changes and improvements to our diet.

Statistical studies and laboratory experiments have shown that increasing the amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids in the diet can reduce the susceptibility to prostrate cancer. These studies have also shown that where the disease has already been diagnosed the life expectancy can be increased. The affected man can live with the disease without further deterioration and in some cases improvement has been noted.

Omega 3 fatty acids are most commonly found in cold water fish such as sardines, salmon and tuna. It has been shown that men who eat two or more portions of fish per week have a better chance of avoiding prostate cancer than men who eat more meat. Men who have already been diagnosed with the cancer can reduce the effects of the disease by increasing their consumption of fish and thus Omega 3 fatty acids.

A convenient way of increasing the intake of Omega 3 fatty acids is Omega 3 fish oil supplements which are usually in the form of capsules. These capsules are manufacture to be free of pollutants and rich in the beneficial Omega 3 fats. They are a low cost convenient supplement for better health.

The effects of prostate cancer can be serious and deadly. The taking of Omega 3 fish oil supplements can ward off this disease in many cases and help fight the disease where it has been diagnosed.

When selecting an Omega 3 fish oil supplement check the packaging for information regarding pollutants such as mercury and the levels of the beneficial components such as DHA and EPA fatty acids. If this information is not provided on the packaging look for a product that provides this information.

Your health and your prostate deserve the best Omega 3 fish oil supplement available.
