Obese Patients at Higher Risk of Prostate Cancer Spreading, Study Says
Obese prostate cancer patients may be at higher risk of having the disease spread to other organs, according to a joint German and Canadian study. Radical prostatectomy not only seems to reduce that risk, but also the risk of prostate cancer recurring after surgery. Radical prostatectomy involves removing the prostate gland and tissue around it.

    Abdominal obesity and increased levels of leptin (a hormone that sends a signal when the stomach is full after eating) are associated with an increased risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). I am only 40 years old but I was really fat and that was affecting my testosterone levels..It made me have prostate problems and low libido..I was depressed but my doc recommended me to lose weight and workout, also prescribed me a supplement for my prostate named alpharise, it has been 8 months and I already lost 50 kgs!! I am healthier, happier and my libido has increased, this supplement and my new alimentation and lifestyle worked miracles on me.
