What is prostrate cancer?
The random mutation of defective cells can cause some cells to continue duplication at a rapid rate. This spike in cell growth can cause cancer tumors. When this happens within a certain part of the male reproductive system, it is known as prostrate cancer. Because older cells have a higher chance of being defective and mutating, this cancer is much more common amongst older men.
What can be done about prostrate cancer?
It seems as though genetics, what foods you eat, and how you live may be factors in whether you will develop prostrate cancer. However, the video outlines that 80% of men will have prostrate cancer before the age of 80. With statistics like that it can be assumed that no matter what your diet or lifestyle is, prostrate cancer is a very real threat.

By understanding that at a certain age (after the age of 50 the risk of prostrate cancer increases dramatically) prostrate cancer is a very real threat, check-ups and awareness can increase the chance of early detection. Because prostrate cancer is very treatable, early detection will mean that survival chances are very high. By being aware you can beat the threat of prostrate cancer!
