An Element that can possibly prevent prostate cancer

Want to avoid the dreaded prostate cancer? Start doing something about it now. Not to scare you, but there are always cells in our bodies that are potentially cancerous—it’s that they just don’t multiply uncontrollably and result in the disease. The reason to start early? Free radicals accumulate with age, and cause damage that may be prevented. So if you want to avoid the big C near your precious jewels or have your prostate leave you and never come back, take selenium.

Researchers believe this mineral seeks out and destroys cancer-causing free radicals before they have a chance to attack prostate cells. In multiple studies, scientists have determined that taking 200 micrograms (mcg) of selenium every day lowers the risk of prostate cancer by 49 percent. And you want that percentage to be in your favor. Dr. Reyes revealed that prostate cancer is the fourth leading cause of death from cancer among Filipino men.

Up until now there is no cheap way to treat prostate cancer.. But we all know that prevention is better than cure.. So why not take in something that can prevent a very serious illness? That’s right let us make a smart choice. Prevention reallys works better than cure.
