New Ideas about Prostate Health
 

According to the World Health Organization, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men and the sixth most frequent cause of death among males worldwide. Prostate cancer affects mostly patients above 50 years of age and most commonly targets the prostate’s peripheral zone. The mortality rate is relatively low, especially if it is diagnosed early. Statistically, fifteen percent of men have prostate cancer during their life, but only 3% die from it.   Another prostate problem that is common in men is BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia.

BPH is not a precursor to prostate cancer but every man should be aware of symptoms related to prostate problems, which would include:

             -needing to urinate more frequently, often during the night

            -needing to rush to the toilet

            -difficulty in starting to pee (hesitancy)

            -straining or taking a long time while peeing

            -weak flow

            -feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully

            -blood in urine or blood in semen

            -having low testosterone

Are generic drugs safe?

A generic drug is a version of a brand name drug that has gone off patent, so it’s no longer legally protected, or if the generic company has successfully challenged the brand name in court and the FDA gives them permission to make a generic.  It isn’t identical, but the central molecule which has already been tested for safety and efficacy is present.  Additionally, the generic company must show the FDA that their testing has the same bio equivalency as that of the brand name drug with a small allowable variance from the original molecule.  What the generic doesn’t have to show is whether their processes to reverse engineer and replicate the central molecule results in carcinogenic chemicals or other impurities that can show up in the final product. 

 

Katherine Eban is a noted investigative reporter who has been researching the generic pharmaceutical industry since 2008.  Repeated reports of the failure of generics to work as well as brand name drugs led her to write Bottle of Lies, which details some of the historical changes in the generic drug industry for the past 35 years and how a lack of oversight of generic drug companies mainly outside the U.S. are threatening our health.

Cooking with animal fats vs. “vegetable oils”

Lard is pork fat, tallow is beef fat and schmaltz is chicken or duck fat and If you were to go to the supermarket and pick up a ready-made product and see one of these fats in it, or wanted to try a recipe which called for one of these fats, chances are you would cringe.  We have been conditioned to think that animal fat consumption is a quick way to an early death by clogging our arteries and the opposite is true with the consumption of vegetable oils such as canola, corn, sunflower, safflower, cottonseed oil, and soy, as a substitute for animal fats.  However, don’t be fooled by the stereotypical profiles of each and especially the wholesomeness of the above mentioned “vegetable oils” because the truth is more complex than that.  These oils typically seen in many products at the supermarket are hardly vegetables.  Some fall under the umbrella of industrial oils, have had their genetics modified, and have been tampered with in other ways in the past few decades that make me question their healthfulness over a long exposure time.

What’s an antioxidant vs. what is an antiradical?

You may be aware that squeezing lemon or lime juice on a salad or fruit salad will keep it from oxidizing or turning brown.  In a sense, the lemon or lime juice is like an antioxidant to prevent your body from oxidizing or turning brown.  Antioxidants are the anti agers of the nutrient world working to protect your body from oxidative stress.  It is estimated that every cell in our body takes 10,000 oxidative hits to its DNA daily!  These hits can come from chemicals in our environment, breathing, or from sunlight.  It is antioxidants that work to counteract that damage caused by free radicals.  Antioxidants and antiradicals are found mostly in fruits and vegetables such as berries, broccoli, spinach, and green tea.  These antioxidants protect plants and consequently us, when we consume them. 

 

Antiradicals are molecules that neutralize free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals are highly reactive and short-lived uncharged molecules that have an unpaired electron.  Since electrons like to be in pairs, these unpaired varieties seek out other electrons so they can become a pair.  When they pair up with electrons in our bodies it causes damage to cells, proteins, DNA, by stealing an electron. This process has been linked to various human diseases including cancer, atherosclerosis, neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and premature aging.  Although very similar and broadly referred to under the umbrella of antioxidants, essentially antiradicals are substances that can either act as an electron donor or an electron grabber whereas antioxidants are substances that can inhibit the process of oxidation.  What is not similar is how each antioxidant and antiradical perform in different analytical assays or measurement testing.   (click the title for the entire article)

Chlorpyrifos

 

If you have never heard of the pesticide chlorpyrifos (pronounced klor-peer-a-foss), sold under the name Lorsban, Dursban and others, you might want to learn more about what foods it gets sprayed on so that you can avoid exposure to it. It appears that despite the gallant efforts of many to remove this toxic pesticide from use, it will continue to be used for the foreseeable future on approximately 50 crops thanks to a series of events that display the worst side of the political and agribusiness friendships that occur in Washington D.C.

 

Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate pesticide like ones developed by the Nazi’s during WW II. Patented by Dow Chemical company in 1963.  Organophosphates interact with cholinesterase, an enzyme that aids in the production of an important neurotransmitter in animals.  In other words, it’s a nerve agent that paralyzes insects and for a half a century, staple foods in the U.S., such as corn, wheat, apples, peaches, lettuce potatoes, almonds, and citrus, have been sprayed with chlorpyrifos.  Consequently, because it affects the nervous system, chlorpyrifos has been shown to cause harm to the brain and cause neurodevelopmental problems in children.
