LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – Almost half of American men will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life.
Approximately 233,000 are diagnosed with prostate cancer, with the other top cancers being skin and colon cancer.
Prostate cancer death rates are falling annually, regular checkups can detect cancer early, and lifestyle changes are the best defense against lower cancer risk.
Take 10,000 steps a day to reduce cardiovascular disease, 7-8 hours of sleep per night, replace animal fats with vegetable fats (eggs, nuts, avocados), check your mental health regularly, quit smoking, 40 g of fiber like brown rice, oatmeal, whole grain bread, fruits and vegetables (especially tomatoes) and contain isoflavones (tofu, chickpeas, peanuts and soy), which lower the risk of prostate cancer.
