Prostate cancer has been increasing enormously these days, with older men now even young men are affected with prostate cancer as a result of various environmental conditions and increased level of pollutants and many more reasons. Most of the time prostate cancer is slowly growing, but goes unnoticed during the early stages. As the size of the tumor increases one could find the symptoms associated with the disease. The life of the patient can be prolonged if detected at an early stage.
Obesity is also to be considered as an increased risk factor for men who have a higher value of BMI (Body Mass Index) and can be affected easily with prostate cancer. Also it has been found that men who are obese had larger tumors on the prostate than the other men. Exercise is an effective tool to drive out obesity and excess fats from the body. Obese men with prostate cancer have to undergo risky treatment methods which have an increased risk of death. Many physicians will avoid practicing treatment on obese men, due to their condition, in fear of losing the patient.

Exercising daily increases the immunity of the body, the overall immunity helps to eliminate and avoid prostate cancer in males. Also older men with poor immunity levels are easily prone to prostate cancer.
Food also plays an important role in slowing the cancer of the prostate gland. Men who take foods rich in cholesterol and animal fats are more affected by prostate cancer. Regular intake of foods rich in cholesterol will stimulate the abnormal cells and lead to prostate cancer over the course of time. Avoiding these foods paves the way to lead a normal and healthy life free from prostate cancer.
Fruits such as apple, grapes, orange, strawberry etc are highly packed with vitamins and antioxidants which also help to remove toxins from the body. Antioxidants play a vital role in supporting a healthy immune system which has the ability to fight and perhaps eliminate the cancer from the prostate gland. Nuts which are rich in selenium and omega 3 fatty acids can also play a vital role to help the body slow down and possibly even eliminate the prostate cancer cells.
