Increase Onions consumption to fight prostate cancer

I'm a firm believer in the African proverb that the stick you see shouldn't pierce your eyes. Every man should see his prostate, and it should not lead to cancer or other complications. Every man over the age of 40 should be aware that the prostate begins to enlarge at that age. That crucial knowledge informs you about your adversary.

What exactly is prostate?

 The prostate is "a gland in male mammals that surrounds the neck of the bladder and releases a fluid component of semen." This is the semen that carries your sperm and allows you to reproduce.

Dribbling urine, urinary incontinence, and the ‘stop-start' phenomenon (when a person tries to pass urine, it comes slightly, then stops and starts again until the bladder is empty) are all symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Most of the time, the bladder isn't completely empty).

In severe or advanced cases, the enlarged prostate can completely block the urethra, causing the patient to have a full bladder and be unable to pass urine. At this point, a catheter is required. This blockage can cause complications such as urinary tract infection, kidney problems, and so on.

Direct rectal examination (DRE) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) are the two most common ways to check your prostate (PSA). A doctor uses a gloved, lubricated finger to examine your prostate, which is located adjacent to the rectum, during DRE.

“The doctor examines and feels the prostate for texture, smoothness, and size, as well as whether it is hard, firm, or soft, among other things. These are not visible in a blood test (PSA). The enzymes will only be revealed by the prostatic seminal analysis blood test" (Dr. Martina Agberien).

Then I discovered that onions contain antioxidants that may benefit the prostate. I've been eating five medium-sized tomatoes and a fist-sized onion every day since then. Men with BPH ate less garlic and onions than men without BPH, according to one study. While the study admits that more research is needed to confirm these findings, onions and garlic do have health benefits.

I use garlic in moderation because the pungent smell turns me off, but the combination of tomatoes and onions has helped my prostate tremendously. When the doctor saw my DRE result two weeks ago, he had to double-check my age on the form and exclaimed, "Your prostate is wonderful for your age."

According to new research, onions and leeks provide the best protection against prostate cancer, while meat consumption is the leading cause of the disease.

Scientists were able to determine what protects against prostate cancer and what increases the risk after studying the diets and environments of 32 countries and comparing them to national prostate cancer rates.

The findings show that animal products increase the risk of prostate cancer while vegetables lower the risk.

The mortality rates for prostate cancer vary greatly around the world. The rates in the United Kingdom, Northern Europe, and America are approximately five times higher than in Hong Kong, Iran, Japan, and Turkey.

Prostate cancer is almost unheard of in areas of Greenland where fish is the primary source of protein, and it is extremely rare in areas of China where green tea is the primary beverage.

Animal products, such as meat and dairy products, were found to be the strongest risk factor for prostate cancer mortality, while onions, garlic, and leeks were found to be the most beneficial, followed by cereals, grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables. Alcohol was discovered to be a minor hazard.

The researchers also looked at the amount of sunlight in each country and discovered that vitamin D provided some protection.

The vitamin is thought to play a role in slowing the disease's progression by binding to cancer cells and either killing them or making them more benign and less malignant.

Tomatoes, a source of lycopene, which has been linked to a lower risk of prostate cancer, were found to have no indirect impact.
