Blue November Special: This Nutrient is able to lower the Risk of Prostate Cancerdrasilvia
After the month dedicated to the prevention of breast cancer that kills many women in Brazil, Blue November comes as the month dedicated to the prevention of the form of cancer more common among men.
Prostate cancer is an aggressive disease, but it has effective treatment when diagnosed early.
In addition to preventive measures based on monitoring using medical exams, clinical tests and consultations, your diet can also offer protection against this disease.
One of the major nutrients that helps to lower the risk of this cancer is Lycopene, a well-known carotenoid that is found in tomatoes, pumpkins and sweet peppers.
Lycopene, like many nutrients, is easily absorbed when cooked. That is why it is so important to include vegetables in your diet. In addition to Lycopene, Vitamins E, C and D are also important for protecting against cancer.
If you are a male and over 45, talk to your doctor about the best ways to monitor the onset of prostate cancer symptoms. Do not forget, the earlier the diagnosis, the less impact this problem will have on your health.
