Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous cancer affecting men in the United States.
From 2008 to 2012, the median age of diagnosis of prostate cancer was 66, and the incidence rate was 138 cases per 100,000 men per year. Many studies suggest that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use is common among prostate cancer patients, and the use of vitamins, supplements, and specific foods is frequently reported by these patients.
One-third of the men were using vitamins and supplements that were specifically marketed for prostate health or chemoprevention (e.g., selenium, green tea, and saw palmetto). A 2004 study examined herbal and vitamin supplement use in men who attended a prostate cancer screening clinic.
Men who attended the screening clinic completed questionnaires about supplement use.
In that study, vitamin E, saw palmetto, and lycopene were most commonly used. A British study published in 2008 indicated that 25% of prostate cancer patients used CAM, with the most frequently reported interventions being low-fat diets, vitamins, and lycopene.
Note: A separate PDQ summary on PC-SPES is also available.A Swedish study published in 2011 found that, overall, participants with prostate cancer were more likely to have used supplements than were healthy population-based control subjects.Supplement use was even more common among patients with the healthiest dietary patterns (e.g., high consumption of fatty fish and vegetables). In a Canadian study, CAM use was reported among 39% of recently diagnosed prostate cancer patients, and the most commonly used forms of CAM were herbals, vitamins, and minerals.BDAY GIFT=100,1K,10K,100K [2600 tokens remaining] athina3 ♥ 2775 Athina Live girl, 28 years old.Now in chat: lets have good time.....tease me and i will tease you @ 11tk [email protected] you love me|no vibrate|@ 1111 you want be my reall men #lovense #ohmibod #interactivetoy aariana4u ♥ 2064 Maria Live girl, 34 years old. - Multi-Goal : PLAY MORE HOT #asian #bigboobs #bbw #18 #hairy #squirt #anal #ebony #milf #milk #german #pregnant #mature #french #latina #feet #teen ##ohmibod alice_stoned ♥ 738 Alice (formerly Alysse) Live girl, 22 years old.
