PROSTATE CANCER & IMPORTANCE OF CLEAN DRINKING WATER

bottled Water Contaminants

Prostate Cancer seems to be a growing health concern among Americans. If not recognized in the initial stages, prostate cancer could be a risk to your health. Unlike other types of cancer, prostate cancer is often diagnosed late and recognized only during the later more dangerous stages of infection. This is because prostate cancer cells grow slowly. Therefore if you recognize any symptoms related to prostate cancer, it should be treated immediately.

Prostate cancer tumors should not be allowed to grow at any rate. However, it is really difficult to identify symptoms of prostate cancer. People who have prostate cancer fail to identify the symptoms of it and get treatment for other types of disease. Prostate cancer cells will gradually spread after a considerably long period of time, and the patient might die of other related diseases like heart-attack, pneumonia or other connected cancers.

Prostate cancer can be effectively treated if identified in its initial stages. While researchers argue that almost all cancers occur due to hereditary and gene defects, it has also been found that cancer can be prevented by leading a healthy life style with proper exercise and diet. High alcohol intake and smoking could increase the chance of developing prostate cancer. Doctors suggest that people eat plenty of leafy vegetables and drink green tea as effective reducing agents for prostate cancer. Nevertheless, alcohol consumption should still be minimized. Contaminated water is another major propellant of prostate cancer.

Packaged water in plastic bottles that leach chemicals and tap water with impurities like weed-killer are a few examples of water contamination that could result in the development of prostate cancer. Drinking clean water on the other hand is an effective way to easily avoid and protect against many contaminants and pollutants that can cause illnesses and disease. So drink clean and purified water regularly.

As reported by the World Health Organization around 250,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in America alone. Most of these people are above the age of 50. Prostate cancer occurs at a later stage in our life, although the symptoms of this disease occur much earlier. Usually the average age of people who are diagnosed with prostate cancer is above the age of 65. The symptoms of prostate cancer like pain while urinating and multiple urinating at night should be considered seriously. Prostate related diseases start to appear among men of age between 40 and 50. If not recognized and treated in its earlier stages, prostate cancer can spread and lead to death.

Treatments like radiation therapy and hormone therapy can be done to treat prostate cancer. But the kind of treatment you receive may not bring down the chances of fatality, because the treatment takes place only during the later stages. Though radiation therapy and hormone therapy alleviates the pain for a prolonged period of time, the cancer could return after that.

Avoid prostate cancer by leading a healthy lifestyle. When you consider that 43 million Americans are deprived of appropriate healthcare and 40% of medical students who graduate from various American Universities prefer to work abroad, it becomes clear the quality of health care in America is in serious trouble. Also there is increasing discontent among people regarding the reach of public health systems to the masses. With more money being spent annually on science and technology and other space related issues, public health seems to be a discarded affair. In such a situation the best option is for men to take sufficient precautions before they are diagnosed with some serious illness like prostate cancer. Living a healthier lifestyle and drinking plenty purified water free of chemicals and toxic contaminants could save many people from developing this terrible disease.
