Does drinking daily gives you prostrate cancer?

There is no conclusive study or logical extrapolation that will clearly state that a daily intake of alcohol will cause prostate cancer. Prostate cancer's causes lie in a number of reasons like age, race, genetics, hormonal levels, a diet high in red meat and an overdose of some vitamins and omega fatty acids. Considering your question you probably do not know if you have prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the reproductive diseases that can afflict you as you cross the age of forty five. Despite being a cancer, many men who have this problem don't even know that they have it in the first place and death from prostate cancer is usually because the cancerous cells of the prostate can migrate to other parts of the body like the bone and cause tumors to erupt there. Many men eventually die of other types of diseases, probably triggered by prostate cancer.

The reasons for prostate cancer occurring include a genetic predisposition, a non-vegetarian diet, exposure to medical procedures done near the prostate as well as sexually transmitted diseases. It is important to therefore understand the ways that you can prevent this from occurring. The first step is to regularly get yourself examined for the possibility of cancer. The definitive diagnosis can be given only if a biopsy is done. There are other indicators, like the level of antigen in the blood. If you are given the all clear, then you need to start giving up red meat and only indulge in it once a week, as a red meat diet has been implicated as one of the causes of prostate cancer. When consuming dairy, do not have low fat milk as this contains a vitamin A variant that will increase the risk of cancer. To decrease the fat content of milk you can heat the milk slightly and then place it in the refrigerator to cool. This will allow a layer of cream and fats to accumulate at the top which can then be carefully removed with a spoon. If you wish to, you can repeat the procedure one to ensure that all the fat is removed. Low levels of vitamin D are also a risk factor, so allow yourself some time in the sun. Vitamin E and a high intake of tomatoes also seem to be useful in preventing this type of cancer. Curiously, at any point of time if you are prescribed finasteride for male pattern balding, then this will also help reduce the risk of cancer. A high intake of cauliflower and broccoli also seems to decrease the risks of developing prostate cancer. Also, reduce your intake of omega 6 fatty acids by checking the fatty acid content of cooking oil and by eliminating meat. Increase your intake of omega 3 fatty acids from fish, flax, and dairy.
