The incidence of prostate cancer is significantly affected, for example, in diet.
Bratislava, November 7 (TASR) – The prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies in men over the age of 50. "In Slovakia, prostate cancer is almost 9,000. Although this is one of the most common oncological diseases in men, most of them are not going to preventive examinations, which causes prostate cancer to kill almost 600 Slovaks per year, and preventive tests help to detect the disease in a timely manner. can save their lives, " explained the president of the Slovakian Urology Society Ivan Minčík.
November is also known worldwide as a month of prostate cancer fighting. Men also support a global initiative to combat prostate cancer, capturing their fusion and publishing them on social networks under Movember's initiative. The initiative began in 2003 as an attempt to revive the antique fashion trend, the popularity of male fusion. Later, however, creators were able to remind themselves of the prostate cancer and drew attention to the importance of prevention. Officially, a 21 nation campaign is under way. Men are trying to motivate other men to brave and reconsider the urologist.
The incidence of prostate cancer is significantly affected, for example, in diet. In advanced countries where people consume large amounts of protein and animal fat, experts say that the incidence of prostate cancer is significantly higher than in countries where there is a low-cholesterol-rich vegetarian diet rich in fiber and phytoestrogens. Prostate cancer is more common in obese patients, which is associated with high intake of fat, cholesterol and lack of physical activity.
Genetics are also important. "The risk of developing prostate cancer is greater if cancer occurs in the first degree relapse" says Minčík. Most importantly, it does not underestimate the prevention that is appropriate for all people in this age group.
The Movember Initiative also supports Slovak hockey players who motivate people to prevent UFOs.
